RG control cavity differences

Okay, if you look on the back of a hardtail RG, you see that the control cavity has a "rounded" top rather than a "cut" top (towards the top of the guitar)

The RG's with trems obviously have the cut top to make room for the tremolo cover which is also there; the hardtails don't.

I happen to need a full cover for a hardtail RG body (this would be the exact type as found on a RG421 for example)

Obviously i'm going to order this from Ibanez, but if you look into their on-line parts catalog under RG421, you see the cover as part 4PT1RG3B. fine and dandy, but if you look at a trem-equipped guitar like the RG570, etc., it's control cavity cover is listed as the same part....

Is there actually a difference, or do all the covers come the same and they are cut to fit trem-equipped guitars? or is it just a mistake on the catalog number?

I know some Ibanez gurus out there can help on this one!
