RG560 neck stamp

Hi guys, I just picked up a nice 87 RG560. As I do with every guitar I buy used, I tore the whole thing down. Something i noticed immediately is that the neck heel is marked RG-550R. On the back of the headstock, the sticker indicates F7XXXXX. Everything on the guitar checks out and given the near mint condition of the remainder of the guitar, I have a hard time believing the neck was replaced. Did Ibanez mark the 560's neck in this way or has the neck been replaced?

Thx for any info!

Re: RG560 neck stamp

perfectly normal; even some 470's of that era have RG-550R stamps. What i'd worry about is a 550R stamp on a 7xx
Also, I'm pretty sure the "R" would stand for right handed...

I stand corrected... 550 maple boarded necks have the 550M stamp
