RG550

I'm in the process of selling my Jackson Warrior WRMG tomorrow and found what I believe to be an RG550 (ice blue) going for about 350 - 400. Is there a way to find if it's a true RG550? It's a 1991 and the serial number checks out. Is there any other way?

Re: RG550

Yeah--post pics so we can tell you. 550s came in Laser Blue and Atlantic Blue. What's the serial number? Is there a cover plate on the back where the jack access would be? If so, then it sounds like a 550. Is there a pickguard?

Re: RG550

I think I read that you need 10 posts to post pictures somewhere else on this forum. If not, I'll post them after this post. The serial number appears to be F107070 and to me it looks like a mirror pickguard. Also, yes, there is a cover plate where the jack access would be.
