anyway, I'd be very pleased if I get this guitar with this current specs. Because it's the way I like it, metal flakes + sharky = win.

the previous owner may had very same taste with me.

nevermind the stamp.

the 550 LTD is offered for US market started in 1994, the neck is 93.
It makes sense that it belongs to 550LTD.

Re: 1993 RG517?

I have been checking the old catologs and I cant kind find that neck being offered in 93. The 550ltd looks like it may have a donor but I have seen pictures of those necks stamped 550ltd and mine is stamped 550r. Were there any other 550s in 93 or 94 bound with fins and aanj.

I bet it's neck swap.

the metal flake is not available in 93.

The headstock is black and has the shiny goldish logo, like a 96. I will post more and better pictures tomorrow. I am also greatful the replies to help figure out what the heck I have here.

Re: 1993 RG517?

the green flake color is correct for RG 517, but sharky neck?

could that be a neck swap ?

what is the color of the headstock?

No, it would have a scarf joint, and that was before the bubinga as well. Ibanez called necks with scarf joints "one piece" all the time. Likely a left-over F93xxxxx SN was used on it.

All one piece necks have a scarf joint. You'll have to post some pics to clarify....

Likely a 1994 RG550LTD neck.

1993 RG517?

Hello, I have a what I believe is a Rg517. It looks absolute like a 1996. Its metal flake green, has v7 v8 s1 pickups. It has an aanj with a bound, shark fin inlayed rosewood neck with the shiny Ibanez logo on the headstock. Now for the part I cant figure out. The neck is a wizard 1 neck, it is dated 1993 and is stamped rg550 on the heel. Could Ibanez have used old stock necks in 96 for the 517. I dont think its a parts guitar mainely because there were no aanj necks in 93 for a 550, that I know of. I also dont know of a bound shark finned rg550 neck. I know the jems and the FGM had aanj introduced in 93, but mine is not one of those necks. So did any 1993 rg's have an aanj? Could it have been custom ordered in 93, metallic green with that hardware? Any help figuring this out would be appreciated.
