Cool NGD: '87 RG550DY-R

Here is my new '87 RG-550DY with a rosewood fingerboard!
The guitar is in good condition, the neck is just a perfect piece of maple with no cracks at the nut. It plays like butter and sound heavy but also quite vintage, maybe because of the old pickups.

I heard that Ibanez produced non-black RG550s with rosewood board only in the first year and were only sold in Japan. I assume that my guitar is one of those. I removed the neck and it has RG550-R stamped on it, so it is not a neck from a different guitar.
