Re: Red letter on Ibanez Rg body?
I can't help spread any light on your query but here's an ebay (australia) auction with exactly what you're mentioning. It's a blue body with a black headstock. There's also a red 'H' on the neck. The dye in the wood near the lettering would indicate authentic colour. It may mean your online blue body is original too... unless this is the same auction!!
Also it's worth noting that the 1987 RG550's came with both black headstocks no matter what the body colour OR a matching colour headstock. I have a 1987 RFR with matching but I've seen plenty with the black headstock too.
