KTS Titanium Reinforcement Rods on RG 2550Z

Hello!

I read on Ibanez Wikia that in 2010 RG2550Z got the KTS Titanium Reinforcemnt Rods in the neck. My RG2550Z has just arrived. It's production date is 2010 but the serial number is relatively low (00316). There's no information whatsoever about those titanium rods. However, it doesn't have the Team J Craft label already and no Allen wrenches hold on the back of the headstock. So can I assume it already has the titanium rods or not? Was there any information about that in 2010 RGs?
TIA

Hi. I think only the 3xxx have the tks, and some early premium guitars. My indo rga72tqmz have titanium rods too but no sticker on the headstock.

No, not only the 3xxx. I saw pictures of 2012 RG2550Z and it did have a sticker. I don't know how reliable this page is but you can read it here:
http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/RG2550Z

How do you know that your RGA has the titanium rods?

Ohh, ok. Maybe iīm wrong. Ckeck the 2010 catalog, itīs more reliable. But even if it doesnīt... don't worry, 5pc neck are very strong.

Hmm, according to catalogs you are right. Only 3xxx and Premiums had those reinforcements but I did see 2550z with the KTS sticker...

Iīm really not shure, i checked wikia for rga72......... and itīs not mentioned the tks rods. Ask your dentist to take a x-ray The ibanez catalogs donīt mention titanium in any 2550, itīs a mistery! Ask your dentist to take a x-ray

I have a 2012 RG2550MZ, and there's no titanium rod in it. I remember specifically that the 3XXX lines had the KTS to justify them being so much more expensive.
