Hello,
I am considering buying a used Ibanez guitar but I am not sure that I have identified it correctly. All I have to go on is one photo and a bit of info.
I am told that the guitar is about 10 years old. It has the AANJ. The tremolo is marked "Ibanez Lo-TRS Trem". The serial number is F003xx16. Near the serial number is the word 'Japan'. Does this seem to be a Japanese model? and if so, is it odd that it would have the TRS tremolo? I have read here that this type of tremolo is to be avoided. Many thanks to anyone who knows more about these things than I do... Barry

So, what would be the difference between an RG470/570 with the Lo-TRS trem and the same guitars with the Edge system? (ah, other than the trems... that is.) Are they actually different models?

The other difference would probably be the input jack. It's not a recessed one but uses the plate like the RG3XX series and lower. If it's a late model Japanese series RG470 it will have the Wizard II neck which is slightly rounder than the Wizard making it slightly thicker.
