I don't think that's a 550. 550's had the old square neck joint. Plus, 550's didn't have the V7-S1-V8 pickup combination.

that's what I was thinking, it looks legit, but I don't want to be buying a knockoff

a 97 550 would.

You can see the serial says its a 97 fuji guitar, a 97 would have the aanj.

well i'm probably gonna call again, it doesn't seem like anyone here knows what it is

it's a 1997 ibanez (mij fuji-gen manufacter) 550.

per Tom_1.0

and he's not wrong about anything ibanez, at one point he owned half the company but sold it on ebay 2 days later.... .

echo....

it's a 550, my 93 has the square neck joint and came with the V7/V8 pickups, however a couple of years later they switched to the AANJ - $490 is a great price.
Actually called Mark!

I'd say its been refinished, or at least the headstock has. The headstock is bubbly looking in the pics, and the logo is off.
Other than that its a legit 550.
#21
There's really nothing strange about the headstock or logo. Have you actually seen a 93-97ish Ibanez? Nothing seems out of place here.

Not sure what you guys are talking about.

The logo isn't in the right place. Like I said, the headstock looks like its been refinished, so whoever did it put the logo in the wrong spot.

regarding the logo, I thought it was a bad photo

, but as per usual, Phil is bang on,

its being refinished, maybe try and knock a bit of cash off for that, but otherwise it is a fully legit 550 and a truly great guitar.

i had already bought it for the full price, but it was pretty low anyway so i'm not compaining
#27
Yeah littlephil is correct on this.
While they did have rg550s in desert yellow as a reissue in like 1998/1997 with the superwizard, skunk strip etc (i know i own one). I don't think they ever did one in that finish and the logo is all wrong anyway.. its wrong in general since the refinish.

weird. it let me add it to my cart.


SNIPED!
