RG550DY "reisssue" - what year? original wizard pr

Does anyone remember what year they made a run of DY RG550's with the AANJ? I am looking at one and may get it but am wondering if they were made during the bummer trem post era and I can't find the catalog listing anywhere. I assume this had the original Wizard profile too, right? anyone out there have one and care to opine? Are they more valuable than the original version? Thanks. Z

I've got a '95 serial number one here ('94 model has Maple fretboard, '95 has Rosewood and was designated RG550-R). Original Wizard profile.

Lol. I was just about to start a post with the same question. I'm looking at a DY 550 on the bay (you better not be looking at the same one -lol) and notice it has a AANJ and bubinga stripe on the back of the neck and was wondering when they re-issued these. Love the info you can get on here. BTW - what years are the "bad trem post era"?

Another question - I'm looking at a 91 770DX and it has an Edge. Didn't they put the Lo Pro on in 91?

You can stop looking at that blue 770DX, with the nice clean maple board, I hear they're terrible

That's me , but I have a 760 that hasn't even arrived yet so I won't go too high on this one. I honestly don't know about the trem, did you look at the catalogues on Rich's site? I'll check this evening.

1991 RG7xx guitars had the Edge, 1992 models had the LoPro.
