RG 560

Hi all. I have an RG 560 that I've had for quite some time and I don't know the year. Can one of you tell me how to date it using the serial #? I think its a late 80's.
Its almost a cranberry in color with the headstock matching color. It has a few mojo dings on the body but the rest of the guitar is about perfect, very little fretware, stays in tune and all original including the case. There is no finish checking.
I was also wondering what it might be worth? Not sure if I want to sell it but its not seeing much playing time anymore. It is a great player for sure.
I can post pics if needed.
Thanks
RR

the RG560's lifespan went from 1988 to 1992 approx. tell us the serial number and we'll give you the exact year

Cranberry in color but with a matching headstock? I thought all 560's had the black headstock. My orange one from '88 is a black headstock.

Well, certainly a 560 config. Maybe it's a 90's one.

Re: RG 560

maybe this?



GI = Grape Ice
though yours looks more a LR (Lipstick Red).

it's from the 1990 European catalog
