IBANEZ made the RG550 between 1987 and 2002 – it was the budget version of the Ibanez JEM-777 with the same basic body shape and HSH pickup configuration. From 1987 to 1994 the pickups were V2-S1-V1 then from 1994 onwards they were V8-S1-V7. The original Edge tremolo was changed to a Lo-Pro Edge in 1992. The RG550 was discontinued after 1994 but reissued again in 1997. The RG550-R (rosewood fingerboard) was available in some countries in 1995 and 1996. Also a 20th anniversary resissue of the 1987 model was released in 2007 as the RG550MXX (with maple fingerboard) and RG550RXX (rosewood fingerboard).
