Is this road flare red?

I know the pictures are bad, but it's all i can work with, I havn't seen this guitar in person yet. I originally thought it was road flare red, but then I heard that Ibanez released the 550 in something called Fire Alarm red. Based on these pictures, it doesn't look too much like road flare red, but that may be due to the quality. But I've never seen fire alarm red before.

Re: Is this road flare red?

Do anyone have all three, RFR, Five Alarm Red and the Carotene Orange? It would be nice to see a sample shot with all the same lighting and camera settings. I got no clue which one I got. Not that it matters much, but I'd like to see a decent comparison between the three of them.

That looks like Carotene Orange

FAR only came with a black headstock, so that is one way to tell.

My old CO 550...

RFR is hard to capture in pics , usually looks washed out in photos .

I previously thought so too, but in the last year or so I've seen a couple of CO 550's and one 570........ coincidentally, they were all 1988's.

I think mine is CO, but it's a '89 RG750. Googling for these colors is close to useless, some are tagged with several names and the pics are often bad when it comes to actual colors.

Not my guitar, but it's the same color. I got the same strap and the color is pretty close.

CO is not "neon", but well orange...

That pic looks like RFR.
