Hey guys, I barely know anything about Ibanez guitars. My uncle found what seems to be an alright Ibanez guitar at a swap meet and he's looking to sell it but we can't figure out what model it is, so here's where i need your help. Below are some pictures of the guitar which appears to be an Ibanez RG550 Model in a turquoise color with a chrome pickguard.

I think u have a fake Ibanez there mate. There should be a model and seriel number on the back of the headstock.
EDIT: Also, I don't recall any ibanez that uses a licensed floyd rose like that one.

C'mon, man. We're just kidding. We all know that drummers are important.

After all, without drummers, who would bag my groceries?

1991 or 1992 RG550 in Lazer (Laser - name change in 1992 catalog) Blue with an aftermarket single coil in the middle.

could have possible had a lo-trs or something replaced by a LFR? Fairly common practise with bad trems. AFAIK the 550s all had original Edges though? Maybe it broke at some point.


Brilliant looking guitar though, I'd go for it.

it's a early '90's RG550DX with an Edge tremolo(edge terms have the "licensed under floyd rose" stamp)

1991 RG550 in Laser Blue. Not a DX, a DX would have a matching blue mirror pick-guard, not just a regular mirror one, and it'd have the Lo Pro rather than Original Edge. Also, the DX didnt come out till '92.

hmm,I thought the 91 RG550's had a black pickguard..or atleast the ones i saw..that made me think that this might be a DX

Its probably been changed. And the single coil has had its cover removed, probably when the pickguard was changed.

So you think this guitar may have been modified? Like just the pickguard and pickup cover?

Yeah. Everything else looks stock.
