Wow another... RG550 identification plz

Found another sweet RG550 on ****, that looks a little fishy. It looks to me like a earlier one... except I dont think they made the black ones available with maple necks, until they did the reproduction of the in the late 90s... which it cannot because of the neck joint.

Im not sure... so can someone tell me if the made rg550s in black with a maple neck pre 1994? I havent seen any in any of the catalogs or any pics anywhere...
please confirm someone.

Heh, stop calling it a maple neck. It's a maple fretboard. ALL the RGs have maple necks.

88-89-90-91-92-93-94, there are far more Black RG550s with maple fretboards than ones with rosewood.

What would a pre 94 Black RG550 with a maple board look like with a white pickguard?

after 1994 , there was 550 w/ maple board available for asian market, not sure for the rest of the world, but i think the only color option at that time is : black and sangria ( SA).

Something like this, but I have removed the middle pickup and the pickguard is perloid... Guitar is a 1990 RG550
