All right all of you RG fans i found what i believe to be a awesome shape rg 550 at a pawn shop,,the price was 169.00 usd so i put 20 bucks on it to layaway till i figure out the mystery,,,,, the guitar is either desert yellow or neon,,it has a BLACK head stock, ,with a F00 xxxx serial number(2000 japan) it has the V-S-V pickups,,,and a rosewood fretboard maple back (no bubinga stripe),,,,dot markers,,,trem, now for the 2 mystreys...it has no pick guard from the factory no screw holes ,,i owned 3 different 550's (late 80's early 90's) all had pick guards and maple neck, also the headstocks matched the bodys...so i dont know whats up with that,,,mystery 2 it has A RG 550 STICKER...its very small on the back of the headstock in gold lettering it looks factory,,,but i dont know???i know i can take the neck off and check the stamp but i'd like to know before i buy it?!?!?!Ive searched the web for A picture of a 550 with no picguard and black head stock but couldnt find one......SO.... Is this rare gold i should jump on???????or a combonation of a 550,470,570 mix,,that still may good,,or should i kiss my 20.00 bucks good buy?!?!?!
