RG550 question

Sorry, not sure if I've posted this in the right place but I'd like some opinons on this item on the bay...

#160189722524

Now, I thought the RG550LTDPN had a rosewood neck and sharktooth inlays from the pics I've seen, so is this the real deal or not?

I have that guitar, although it's known as the RG550DXPN... the LTD's have the AANJ and rosewood board/sharktooth inlays...
Otherwise, that guitar is legit...

Thanks Reg,

Just done some more digging and concluded that this is indeed a DX and not a LTD as advertised just as I read your post.

Don't know whether the seller has made a genuine mistake with the description or not but it looks like a nice guitar whatever

Re: RG550 question

Presuming the seller's story IS true, I'd say they *somewhat* know what they have but not exactly know what the guitar is.
it's a solid guitar... here's a thread I started a couple weeks ago:
