RG550 Finishes

I will soon buy red RG550, but I'm not sure what finish is that. Looks to bright/pale to be RFR, but I dont know what other red finishes Ibanez had.
Guitar is made in 1990 - the year I was born.

Here is the pic.



Its not the best quality, but...

Re: RG550 Finishes

No, the neck is not original. Its from RG550 for left-handers, and the logo is reprinted so it fits the gravity.

Here's the guy, who is selling it to me, saying goodbye to the guitar.

Might be the camera, but it really looks pale. Perhaps it has faded.

Re: RG550 Finishes

could be a faded RFR. What year is it? I have a Coral Mist, is it close to this color?

I said before its '90. I dont think its a coral mist, couse it more 'luminant'. Like its emitting light.
