Is this RG550 genuine?

Hi all

I nearly bought this RG550 but was unsure it was correct
  • Serial number F337548, which makes it 1993
  • The body had an AANJ, recessed jack socket
  • A shiny Ibanez logo
  • "RG Series" on the headstock
  • LoPro Edge tremolo (I think)

Was this a bleeding edge 1993 model, or just one made from spare parts?

Need pics. Could have been a '93 neck used on a '94 model guitar.

Hi! 93 was a transition year, square joint to aanj. Seems to be a regular 550, all specs are correct.

sounds good to me.
as tuga666 said, 93 is transition year, when AANJ coming and they start marking 'RG series' on the headstock.
