Troubles identifying RG guitar

I'm an owner of Ibanez RG guitar with serial number F3xxxxx. The guitar looks like this:
V7, S1, and V8 (replaced with Duncan now) pickups were present, when I bought the instrument used. I was told, that it's RG550 model, but there are some features, that doesn't match the statement:
- as it results from serial number, the guitar was produced in 1993, but there is no such type of finish in Ibanez '93 catalogue, that my guitar presents. As You can see, there is no RG550 model featuring shark inlays and bindings: Actually, there isn't any with rosewood fingerboard. These facts made me confused. My theories are:
1. It's Rg550 with neck taken from RG770
2. It's some kind of limited version of RG550
3. It's RG770, but has been given to me with V and S pickups (less probable).
What are Yours?

Re: Troubles identifying RG guitar

Now that is a sweet guitar! That's almost exactly the look I'm going for with the '93 RG550 I have, except it just has dots on the rosewood fretboard.
