RG450 550 question

I came across an RG in Holland (for the dutch yall know what site I mean)

This guy is selling an RG550 for all as far as I can tell. His ad said RG1570 but god knows where got that wisdom. I told him it was a 550 and he changed it to 450 cuz thats what the sticker said.

anyways: Serial F205900
its black with rosewood and an Edge trem
I say 550

I am wrong. Were there ever 92 RG450'S even with an edge? and if so should I care, meaning is there a dif?

Yeah from the serial # it's definately not a 1570.

I believe some 450s were MIJ w/ Egde but not sure which years. Any pics?

Re: RG450 550 question

I have a blue MIJ RG450 with edge trem - serial # F92xxxxxx

mine has the block neck heel, not the tilt hell that seperated it from the 550, also the 550 had the V1/2 pups, the 450 had no-name pups....

either way, ive had my 450 from brand new, its still a favourite !
