RG550DY reissue: How many were produced?

Curious if anyone knows how many of the RG550 Desert Yellows reissues were actually produced? I understand that it was a limited production run. Thanks in advance.

Limited by what? It couldn't have been numbers... These are very nice guitars, but they don't exactly seem rare - and they don't seem to pull significantly higher prices than other AANJ RG550s... I had one and liked it very much - kinda miss it from time to time...

The Desert Yellows were a limited run. Black has continued on to the present time.

Most of these type "limiteds" (no edition #) are only limited to the number of orders they can take. They'll display it at, say, Summer NAMM, send out flyers to every dealer, then take orders for a month till they send in the distributors order. Multiply that by 52 distributors.

How many reissues have there been?

I bought mine at the beginning of 2001 though the guy couldn't tell me a thing about it. I searched both the japanese and american web sites ( I live in the UK) for details but only found out I had one when I saw one on ebay a month ago.
