Looks like a very early RG 570 by the knob placement. They're so spread out.

It looks like a copy of a Silver Snake Metal Design.

It's got the Lo-Pro Edge, so it can't be older than '91.
..and it's on ebay right now

Either that or someone routed a real Silversnake for extra pickups.

Wrong headstock for a UCM, though. Shouldn't it have the bronze "USA Custom" logo? Wrong trem, too. Both (neck and LPE) could be aftermarket, though. That finish would have to be pricey as refin to a 570. Of course, who would replace any of the UCM pickup options with a V7 and V8? Annnnnnnnnnd, comparing it to this UCM Silver Snake shows different knob/switch placement. http://www.ibanezregister.com/images...g/silsnak1.jpg

I think I have to agree with Crossing Star. It's an early 570 that somebody has put a lot of work into.
