Re: Is this a 1987 rg550?
Welcome to Jemsite Ritch!!!
That's definitely a legit 550 and an excellent example at that. It can date anywhere from 87-91. They were, for the most part, unchanged during those years. The only changes during that period were with the pickups. The guitar your looking at looks like the neck pup was changed. The original would have black poles just like the bridge pup.
If it's in the right price range, I wouldn't let it go. You'll be hard pressed to find another white one in that good of condition.
