What is this RG?

So I bought this black RG awhile back before I knew too much about what the hell I was doing. It's black, has two routings in the back, and the output jack is routed out on the side of the guitar, it has only two humbuckers, a v7 and v8, a wizard II neck (I think. It's not a wizard, for sure) It's got a LO-TRS bridge, AANJ. The covers for the routngs in the back are not flush, as you can see which is a bit odd. I suspect they aren't original. So what is this thing? My guess is a 1999 RG320?

Going by the Serial number, it should be a 97, and the Japan under it + TRS bridge screams RG4xx..

Looking through Rich's catalog scans turned up this:


Probably a early 1998 RG420 with a 97 serial number, since the 420 isn't in the 97 catalog.
