Re: Need help dating my RG550DY
I think it's an 87.
The key giveaways are that it hs a matching headstock and pickups with no logos on them. This places it as an 87 or an 88 as in 89 the headstocks didn' match and in 90 the pickups got the V1, V2 and S1 logos on them.
As I understand it the 87 guitars had sticker serial numbers (my 87 does) and the 88s had transfer serial numbers but I've not got an 88 to verify this from. Hopefully someone else can confirm or deny this.
Scratch that, I can see a logo on the bridge pickup but none on the neck pickup.
OK I'm stumped!
