1987 RG 550 color options?

I'm looking for info on these options, Ive located an orange 87 body to replace an orange (Five Alarm Red) 89 one I ruined years ago with a belt sander. From the pictures the guy sent me, it seems to be the same color, however I know the 88 was called Road Flare Red, so I don't know how 87 and 89 could be the same? He read me the serial# from the neck that was on the body f7..... assuming that was the original neck who knows Thanks

not easy to tell, cause i guess no one here has got an '87 catalog. also, it's not easy to date a body that had a F7 neck, cause Ibanez often used to put F7 necks on F8 or F9 bodies and viceversa. if you like it, then get it.

but you must explain us why did you ruin that F9 body? it's scandal for us late '80s Ibanez freaks. we're not going to forgive you...

THanks for the info Nuno, It probably is the 89 color if what you said about the f7 neck is true. I will kick my own ass for you in response to ruining my original hehe . I painted it white when the white Jems came out, got tired of that though too. It now remains a dull oversanded, mishapen blue stained piece of junk .
