No scratchplate so it isn't a 550. Could be an old 570, or even 770.

Wow! That's different. I've seen a VERY similar guitar to that before but in a metallic green finish, I think it was described as an RG570LTD.

The one in the pics has the original Edge Bridge which many say is the best of the lot!

The F inthe serial number means it's a Japanese instrument and the 97 give the year.

I think (but I'm not sure) that that colour is called Iron Purple.(abbreviation IPP)

I don't know what the pickups are, or even whether they're originals in the guitar!

On paper (or screen), it looks like a great guitar to me

Hard to tell from the info you've provided, but I'd say most likely. But obviously I can't say for sure.

Re: what model is this rg?

i see... thanks for all ur replies... im just concerned about the neck because i don't want to end up with a wizard 2 neck, and there is no way i can test the guitar beforehand...

I'm not sure, but from memory, I don't recall a Wizard II profile neck ever really getting anything other than a black or white headstock. The matching metallics were normally (and again I stress this is from memory) reserved for the higher level RGs which tended to come with the thinner necks,

Original edge AND a ANNJ? I am betting it didn't come with a Edge. Probably a lopro.

Why would you say that Kevin? There were plenty of RG570s that came with Edges after the LO-PRO was introduced.
