The PL2550 features an offset double cutaway body with neck through body construction. Alder body wings are glued to a maple and walnut neck running the length of the guitar with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with sharktooth position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups with an IBZ triple-magnet humbucker at the bridge and Super 7F single coil pickups at the neck and middle positions and an Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut.
The back of the neck and headstock of the PL2550 are painted. In addition to the 5-way pickup selector lever, the PL2550 has a 5-button pickup preset system.
The PL2550 was discontinued after 1986 and replaced by the similar PL2551.
