It isn't a 555 for sure, there is no pickguard. I also don't think it is an rg body. It may have been custom built by someone and then pu together with an ibanez neck.

Dude that smells like a scam. The auction for that guitar already ended.

I've seen that guitar on e8ay before. Its Ebay iD number is 7321871610

-----------

To answer your question , the body is a modified RG Prestige 1570 and the neck is from an RG 470 (scalloped from frets 20-24).

Edit : Seems like they don't accept links to Ebay , so I'll get rid of the link

I saw that auction as well. I think it's hand made by the guy putting it up for auction. If you ask me it's a pretty sweet looking guitar. one of a kind.
