Question Ibanez rg series 1998 - that model ?

Hi, first sorry for my bad english XD and if I'm in wrong section

I have this guitar was given to me by a friend of mine who does not know the exact model.

I know he paid € 700 - 900 USD +- used in 2004 and that the pick-up modified

I know that the serial number was produced in Japan in 1998

from my research it seems to be a RG 550 LTD, but my guitar, but my guitar has a switch on / off more than the original model.

Please help me to find the exact model ad the value of this guitar

Thanks

Giulio

I dont recall Ibanez ever using mini switches, maybe it was added by the previous owner.

No Idea what it would bring in the Sicilian market... $400-$450 would be probable here in the US. Maybe less with the modded electronics.

With the new 655's being nearly identical guitars and their very affordable price, everything in the used RG5xx series is dropping in value.
