No. You can get a GE rom if you're on MDL but other than that you will not be able to convert it to a straight up Google edition phone.

Download Terminal Emulator from the play store, open app and type SU and hit enter, you should get a root permission popup, next type in getprop ro.bootloader and then see what the next line reads. This will tell you WHICH bootloader you have installed. Sometimes IF you have done anything with your phone going off of JUST the baseband in settings/about phone could be misguided as that is showing which MODEM you have installed. You need to know WHICH BOOTLOADER you have.
