Re: What does the Rg mean?

does it possibly mean roadgear?

I always thought it meant roadstar guitar, but there were also roadgear basses.

yeah, the 1985 Roadstar II was renamed RG, it could be had with both contoured strat style bodies and uncontoured strat bodies. Blazer headstock

In 1987 the RG550 got the same body as the then just introduced Jem (pointy ends, large cutaways, no contours, and the pointy-flag-style 'destroyer' headstock)
