Hello everyone,

I picked up an early 1993 black RG550. Tilt joint, V1, S1,V2 pickups. Looks like its barely been played if at all, and everything seems completely original from case down to every screw.

However, I'm perplexed by the knobs. Most I see have the "top hat" knobs but this one has "speed knobs". They are black, with an allen wrench set screw. Here's some pics:

Is it possible these are the original knobs? Are they original Ibanez parts from the period?

Cheers!

Thanks guys, that's what I thought. Yup, I do see the RG570's had them.

Guess I'm still wondering if these two are old original Ibanez parts like the RG570 would have had, but may be difficult to tell. They seem different on the bottom compared to the current Ibanez make.

Just curious if I should sell 'em or if just generic I'll toss 'em. I've got an order with Rich on the back burner so I'll ask him what he thinks, he'll probably know. :)
