What is this RG?

So I was looking around the net and I found this thing for sale. To my knowledge, it looks like an old MIJ RG470 but I'm not completely sure. Could someone help me clarify? Also what type of tremolo is it? Thanks guys.

Yeah, most probably a RG470, but where it was made determines how good it potentially is. Japanese ones have a better version of the LO-TRS tremolo, which is in fact quite usable and durable.
