How about the RG550XH with maple fretboard

I'd have purchased an RG550XH already if it had a maple fretboard (my favorite). I really like the concept of the guitar. As it is, with rosewood fretboard material, I'll wait for it on the used market.

I'd prefer it if it was an actual RG550, seems they took that model number and slapped it on a cheap guitar. Where are the V7/V8 pickups I mean INF's????!!! and the high quality trem and wood??

If it was a REAL RG550 it would not be so suspiciously cheap.......

That is a good point. As far as I know, all RG5xx guitars (and higher) were made in Japan, way back when.
Still, it's so unique, I'd go for it anyway w/maple FB.
