RG550DY with yellow dots?

3bay - 221503448061

What do you think of this?

Being sold from Japan, I'm thinking über rare prototype RG5000DY before they abandoned the yellow dots and went for the RG5000DY with black dots..

Even though the stamp/ sticker on the neck says RG550..

This one is giving me serious headache

Re: RG550DY with yellow dots?

With just your description it sounded like the RG5000 yellow model, but seeing the pictures, it looks like someone made modifications to an RG550DY. I'm guessing they replaced the dots with yellow ones when they scalloped the fretboard.

Re: RG550DY with yellow dots?

Could be something like you suggest, it could also be that someone painted the dots, or replaced them.

Re: RG550DY with yellow dots?

There is no chance they could have painted them, you can clearly see they're under like half an inch of clear-something, then clearcoat, they're not just on the top of the clearcoat..

So, the possibility of them being put there when they scalloped the board, or possibly replaced the fretboard?

And, weird that they chose to scallop 18-24 instead of 21-24...
