Probably a lo-pro trem. Should be about the same as the earlier ones, but with the AANJ neck heel.

Re: 1995 rg550

i just found this in another thread.

"1995 - A dark year for the 500 series. RG570 returns. No more RG550. V7, V8. LPE. Wizard 2 neck."

how can this be? it has a 95 serial no.

i hope it doesn't have a wizard II.

Re: 1995 rg550

That doesnt have a 5 piece neck u can tell from those pics. Also im almost positive that thats an edge and not a lo-pro but the pic is too small to be totally sure
