Re: 550 with sharfins?

Looks like a 750. 550 body, but 750 neck. Isn't it that Ibanez use a lot of 550 or 570 bodies with the 750 necks and stuff? Theres no differences between the bodies, just the necks.

The RG550 LTD's have sharktooth inlays.

That's probably a Five Alarm Red RG750. My RG750 has 550 in the pocket as well. RG550LTDs had the AANJ.

The RG-7x0s had 5x0s bodies. The neck was the difference.
So, it's usual for them to have RG-5x0 stamped on the neck pockets.
