Don't have a pic yet, but looks like a 560 body with H-S-S setup and original Edge trem. V2 S1 S1 pickups. No pickguard and original neck heel. Has a wizzard neck, but maple board. The serial number indicates Made in Japan 1989 but no model number on it. All I can guess is a 550 neck on a 560 body. Any ideas?

I think the only way for us to figure out the model is by noting the features of the body: Sharpness of horns, flat top or round, and most identifieing (for my guitar) the placement of the terminal jack. But I'm pretty new to 'real guitars', just an idea (assuming 560 isn't the right body, but I don't think I could know that given the info).

back then (in the UK at least) it was possible to order a 550 or 560 with a maple or a rosewood fingerboard. Neck swaps are also incredibly common on these types of guitars.

Having said that a lot of the necks, with either fingerboard simply say RG550 on the heel.
