RG560 with Maple Fretboard Question. Did it ever exist?
I have been offered up a 560 with a maple fretboard. The serial number on this dates it as an 87, but from all of my research, the 560 wasn't introduced until 88. Also, from what I have found, the 560 was available with a maple fretboard only in Japan.
Has anyone here seen a 560 dated 87 with a maple fretboard? BTW, the color is lipstick red. I am thinking that it is a 87 550 neck on later 560 body, or maybe I am lucky and getting one of the first 560's ever, and it was never officially available. Also, the headstock is black if that matters.
Please help on this before I go through the trade. I am looking at trading my 2000 570 Sour Apple Sparkle + $150 for this, so I want to make sure it is original.
Thanks for the help,
