Re: Difference between RG550 and RG565? And other RGs
The differences are mostly in the pickup configurations.
RG550 pickguard with HSH pickups.
RG565 (no pickguard), humbucker at the bridge and a single coil at the neck, and it has a reverse headstock. Inlays are dots colored same as the guitar's finish, fretboards are always maple on these (I think).
RG560 (no pickguard), humbucker at the bridge, middle single, neck single.
RG570 (no pickguard), same as RG550 otherwise with HSH pickups.
Then you have the RG750, RG760 and RG770 which are the same guitars as the ones I mentioned but with cooler cosmetics (i.e. RG770 has fancy sharktooth inlay and binding along the neck, otherwise it's the same as the RG570).
