The RG1550 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2003. It replaced the RG550 as part of the expanded Prestige line.
The most notable new feature of the RG1550 compared to the RG550 it replaced is the new Edge Pro tremolo bridge. The RG1550 also features a basswood body with a maple Super Wizard neck with a 24-fret maple fingerboard with dot position markers. It has dual Ibanez Vintage humbucking pickups flanking an Ibanez single-coil which are mounted on a black pickguard. Other components include a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.
The RG1550GX is a similar model with gold hardware, a white pearloid pickguard and a rosewood fretboard. The RG1550FM is also similar, but has a mahogany body with a flamed maple top and gold hardware.
The RG1550 was discontinued after 2004. The RG550 lineage was revived with the RG1550M in 2009.
