Re: is this an RG550?

Surely the trem would be a lo-pro by 1997?
Although 1997 is what the serial says!

Re: is this an RG550?

Ibanez switched back and forth between Edge and Lo-Pro. You can't guarantee they'd use one or the other. There's also a chance it's been swapped by the owner, as either one would slot right in, although I think that's the original trem on there.

right, althought there are signs that allow us to get a closer range:

#F9751807 + AANJ + V7/V8 + moved volume knob = 1997

Nuno, I think your knowledge surpasses mine! With our knowledge combined (and the rest of the forum members') we have quite a lot, though.

Canadian Mark, thanks man.
