Im looking at purchasing an RG for a project and have found one that i think would work but im a little confused on the serial number and what model it actually is ?

The serial number is F326443. From what i've read on the ibanez wiki pages this makes it a 93 MIJ. I believe it is a RG570 the only difference is this one has V7/S1/V8 pickups, whereas according to the wiki pages the RG570 from 93 had V1/S1/V2 pickups. Anyone have an idea as to why this is ? Could it be an older 93 neck that was still around later on when they changed to the V7/V8 pickups. Or could it just be one of those things that happens when building lots of guitars.

I would check to see if it is an RG470. These used an original EDGE bridge and the V7 pickups you mentioned:

That being said, the RG550's from that catalog page also use the V7 and V8 pickups, but have a pickguard and use the LoPro EDGE. Really though, the wiki pages you might find can have some outdated or incomplete information. The catalog pages will help show a more accurate representation of the lineup over the years. Especially when the RG570/550/470 have used different bridges and pickups throughout the years.

Hope this helps,
