Question Ibanez RG550 Serial No: F750000 Info?

Hey guys,

Sorry for a potentially stupid question, I purchased this guitar a few years back and I'm looking for some info on it. I've done some research online and found some conflicting answers. All I know is that this guitar was made in the 70's according to the original owner.

Any help/info would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Slight hijack... I get how the serials work for factory, year and month, and that there are several different formats depending on period, but I didn’t know you could get model and colours from them? Is that from some sort of lookup resource like the old Gibson factory daybook or is there something in the serial that lets you identify to this level?

Nice serial number! I would speculate that with such a high number, it's gonna be most likely 1988. The F7 stickers were used until even early 1989, and the monthly production numbers at that time were <3000. So I'd guess it's more likely first half of 1988, but it's quite speculative.
