RG 550 natural

Did Ibanez make RG 550 natural and in what period of time? What type of hardware dit it have, black or cosmo black? How was it finished, stained or natural lacquered?

They've got a model in Japan designated as the RG580, which has a natural oiled mahogany body. Dunno if that's what you're looking for.

I've never heard of a production RG550 in Natural finish but I've seen a couple of ones that have been stripped of their finishes leaving the body natural wood colour with the black pickguard.

Ibanez not only have the RG580, but they also used to produce the RG547 and RG548 both natural finish, ash bodied RG 570 style guitars. The 547 had gold hardware and the 548 had black.
