Was There Ever A DSY RG550 W/ AANJ & A Lo-Pro?

I've been looking thru Rich's catalog scans and unless 1993 RG550's came with AANJ (I don't think so) then the answer is no but, some of you may know better than me on this one.

There was a re-issue RG550DSY with the AANJ in 1996 or 1997.

Look at the catalog page linked below and compare the bass side of the BSB to the FP standing next to it. The lower detailed shot of the BSB shows the near perpendicular joint more clearly.

I wonder if it was swapped in at some time? Every original one I've ever seen has had a Lo Pro. --Jason

My '94 RG550EG came stock with a Lo Pro Edge. They went back to the original Edge in '97.

Probably an early 94 with a 93 serial number, they've done it before, and the 1993 model year RGs did not have the AANJ. I used to hang out at the Ibanez dealer here at the time.
