RG570 with low trs..wtf?

I thought all the 5xx models had edges. I played this one at GC and was purple 570 neck said made in japan. It had the V pups in it but had a low trs. Is it a NOS guitar they had? I was told earlier that the 5xx always had the edge trems. Im confused

or maybe a 570 with a swapped non-recessed TRS?

Did it actually say 570 somewhere (on the guitar, not on the price tag)??

If not, it could've been a european 470. They were made in japan and had the TRS. And they had the Vs.

I think my RG470 had a 550 neck. ANd I was like wtf? It's a rosewood board and I bought it new, no way...

Or maybe the guitar body said that, I can't remember.

Either way, they made several purple RG470's, so check the jack plate to make sure it's actually a 570. if the jack plate is a black plastic square, it's not a 5xx. No way.

Iīve just seen one on Ebay (while searching for "ibanez jem") and reminded there was a topic here about it. I though it was
someone who saw the RG on Ebay and decided to post a topic here, but itīs just coincidence.

It also comes with a Lo-TRS tremolo but the neck doesnīt have the bubinga stripe (aha, so itīs not a 570). Take a look and tell me if itīs the same guitar youīve seen:


By the way, the opposite happened to me some months ago. I was visiting one of the GCīs and found there a 470, but it came with an Edge tremolo and 2 humbuckers (weird, isnīt it?). 3 weeks ago I saw the same guitar here in Brazil and the salesperson told me it was a 620QM, nothing to do with the 470...
