yet another '87 rg550 question
hello, i did a search and found part of my question's answer - they DID make black 550s with maple boards.
the second part of my question is - how rare are they? i know that's a tough/stupid question, but i've only seen one picture in another rg550 post. i bought mine (or my dad bought it for me rather) new, it was my first guitar and i never really gave it too much thought until a few days ago when one of the reissues came in to my work. it was a black one with a rosewood board, which got me thinking...
so i popped the neck off mine to make double sure it was a 550, and it is. i double checked the serial number (F749941) to make double sure it was an '87, and it is. only mine has a maple board! even though it's beat to s*** i thought i had a super duper rare deal going on until i saw that aforementioned picture.
anyway, i'd never sell the guy or anything, so i'm not interested in how much it may be worth. just kinda curious if anyone knows if they're moderately or especially rare.
