550 from 90 I believe. The First number is the last number of the year and the second number is the month and the rest is what number guitar it was that month, i.e. it was 1090 guitar built that month. 520 would be a HH guitar

Rg550 with a refret, original edge, lazer blue(?), seymour duncan jb neck, ibanez s1 mid(stock), and dimarzio tone zone bridge.

If the refret was good its "worth" a good 400$. What's he asking for it?


Edit: anyone else notice the weird shape of the treble side horn?

Just did, but I think it's a crappy pickguard, maybe some one else will see it better with a good answer.

how do you know it's a refret (note: it IS a refret, indeed)?

The absolutely massive frets, the cleanliness of the board, mostly speculating of course.

the main thing that confuses me is the weird pick gaurd... whats up with that? lol.
