ID needed ASAP

I've never seen an RG550 with red inlay dots. What is this model? It's a 1991 and I'm looking through the Japanese catalogs right now and can't find it

NM found it in the 1992 spring fair:

Time to make myself go into more debt on this one. This is stupidly rare.

Re: ID needed ASAP

I had never heard of an RG5000... What are the odds for there being another one for sale in the classifieds?

Well, he is leaving Japan so he is offloading his. Personally I like the red one more. If I buy the red one tomorrow, it'll be cheaper than his

Re: ID needed ASAP

So if anyone knows, what does the color RR stand for? That 5000 is not Candy Apple, it's RR and I have no idea what color that is

Could be, but Ibanez tends to use more cryptic language in their color names, like Heather Pearl
