Ibanez RG What??

I found this Ibanez RG Series at a pawn shop in decent condition, but i am unsure as to which RG model it is and if its worth the $180 they're asking. I know the bridge humbucker says Seymour Duncan, but the other two don't say it and I'm thinking it could have been upgraded.



My main concern is at the base of the neck there are two small cracks (about an inch in length) on the body, flush with the flat back of the neck as if it was flexed at this point and I don't know how bad that could be structurally.

Any help as to what RG model this could be and what its worth used would help for now and in the future.

Thanks

i'd guess it's a 350/370 or similar. but better pics (including back of headstock, and a close-up of the trem) would help me to be sure.

i'm not sure of the exact second-hand value, but it's a lower-end rg (assuming it is a 350/370) so it's not going to be worth a massive amount.

Looks like an RG450DX, with an upgraded pickup:

I'd be wary of those cracks tho...

Those cracks may just be in the finish which is common on bolt-ons. Are the cracks in straight lines or more what looks like with a wood grain?

I'm pretty sure it's an Ibanez RG350DX, considering it has an Edge III trem instead of the newer Edge Zero II found in RG450DX. (you can tell by the saddles and the fact that the trem arm is not a screw on from what I see).

I wouldn't be concerned with the cracks unless they look deep. Most likely it's just the paint. Common with bolt-ons.

Personally I would give it a miss due to that. There are plenty more fish in the sea and I see RG's in most of the pawn shops. Just my opinion.
