Three colours, I'm pretty sure. Black, blue, and purple neon.

Re: Identifying this RG

Yes, 550LTD, I have one too, in Pewter (silver to you and me)

It's a great guitar and I love it. The best part is, they were about £800 I believe and I bought mine from some guy for £250!! AND with DiMarzio Evos and it really IS in MINT condition!!

Re: Identifying this RG

^^ That looks like a regular RG550 built before 1994 (it has the old neck joint), just the version with the rosewood board (RG550R-BK). Only thing is the bridge height adjustment posts look like they have been replaced in the lower pic, but not the top one. IS it the same guitar? They have different dings in the finish near the bridge if you look close.

I forgot about the silver one. So that means at least 4 finishes were available.
