My "new" love... RG550 :)

I bought this baby few weeks and I just LOVE IT!!!

It's an RG550 1993 black, maple fretboard, AANJ, lo-pro...

Cleaned up the fretboard, changed strings, swapped the p-ups with Dimarzio Evo2 and Air Norton, and polished it with Dunlop 65...

It plays and looks like a dream...

Nice man! My main guitar for over 20 years has been an RG550. never let me down. I scalloped the last 4 frets, and sanded down the neck. Other than that, it's stock.

Re: My "new" love... RG550 :)

Hello, correct me if i'm wrong but i don't recall rg 550s having AANJ necks on them.and i thought they all came with the edge tremolo someone changed it or it is a 20th reissue
I have the exact same guitar from 2003 (F03######) and it does not have the AANJ so did they make them this way in 1993?
