7 in SN is evident + that silver sticker with SN is dead giveaway.

Re: Strange RG550 model?!

Hi guys...

Just wondering what model RG this is? The seller describes it as a RG550, but don't they have maple fretboards? Hope one of the pros here can tell me what it is (if it's cool enough i might even buy it)



SN is F757742

Thats a nice guitar, whatever it is.. Ever try a ToneZone? You might like the way that sounds in there.

Re: Strange RG550 model?!

It DEFINITELY wouldn't be an RG550LTD, those things had sharktooth inlays and binding, plus they had Lo-Pro edges, I know I've got one and it is sweeeet

Re: Strange RG550 model?!

I was thinking it could be RG550 LTD cause they came with rosewood fingerboard and hard case,and everyting would match except...no heel slant..as toshiro said.
Though it seems stupid that someone would change V7,V8 for V1,V2. I bought guitar used and guy said to me its RG570,which obviously is not,but I was just a 17 yo begginer,so didn't really knew..I better just play it and dont wonder much,its a nice guitar and as I play like 3 notes per song higher than 18 fret no heel slant dont bother me. Could someone give me advice on which pickups to put in for some Van Halen sound,I like lots of harmonics,powerful sound but not muddy? This pu is kinda powerful but muddy,notes in chords just mix together when distorted

Re: Strange RG550 model?!

did you buy it off the-place-which-we-do-not-speak-of?

If so then it's a "parts" guitar...like 570 neck with a 550 body then some random V1.. pups that were laying around the house.

Re: Strange RG550 model?!

Thinking of the old MIJ 4xx series, they would probably be one of the cheapest ways to build a 5xx series axe for a lot cheaper than buying one and building from parts.

Get an early MIJ 4xx axe complete for cheap, buy a 5xx body off e-Bay (they seem to go for decent prices sometimes), and move everything over. Buy a recessed stereo input jack if it's not already with the body and voila, you've got a 5xx series MIJ guitar for a good price.

Sounds alright, no???
