Quite The Statement Indeed

Went to my local guitar shop (the only one that carries Ibanez gear in my city) expecting more of the same: 3 or 4 low-end RG models and a couple low-end AX or S. What do I spot (from across the friggin' store!!) but a used, bright yellow, RG-550. This thing was USED!! And set up horribly. Didn't even bother to try playing it. The action was all screwed up, the bridge was at the WRONG angle, and the pickups were almost UNDER the pickguard completely. And EVERYTHING was dirty. Still cool to see one around though.

Can anyone give me some info on the "American Master"... I know they were only made for 2 years. The second year was from a different maker than the first. How many of these were made, I herd less than 100.
Any other info would be great.

That should have been a new topic of it's own.

Bottom line, nobody can say with any certainty how many or few were made. Many do not have serial #'s at all, and the ones that do, there's no certainty that that was the # of that model produced, or produced that year. Scarce they are, but that's the only certainty.
