Re: RG 550 Neck Repair?
Hmm, quite odd... That color definitely didnt exist in 87, but hey, putting an 87 neck on a 91 body isnt exactly rocket science. That said the "X" on the back is "weird" for sure, but that scarf joint looks awfully far away from where I recall it being. Neck looks rather "thick" for a 550 as well. What I can say for sure, is that thing has some heinous fret sprout going on, and that will definitely need some attention unless youre the type that likes the sensation of sliding your hand on a cheese grater lol. The inlays at the 12th fret also look wonky.
Honestly, the only thing thats not raising an eyebrow for me is the edge tremolo. Unless its a *really* good deal, maybe look for something else perhaps.
