What is this RG?

My friend has an Ibanez RGSomething. He never even paid attention to the model. It was black and sounded good so he bought it. I think he paid somewhere between $650 and $750 for it. I don't have pictures, but I can give the specs. There's no model number on the back of the headstock.

Japanese, '01 or '02 (Sorry, I didn't look at the SN too closely, but I know he bought it new in early '02)
Black w/ the smoked chrome hardware (cosmo black?)
HSH, V2, S1 ,V1, ring mounted.
24 fret rosewood w/ dots.
Lo-Pro trem (?)
Chrome Ibanez logo over a regular check mark.
AANJ, of course.

It's obviously not part of the catalog anymore, and I couldn't even find it on the Ibanez Register. Maybe someone here recognizes it.

it's an rg570, or if it has a pickguard, it's an rg550.
