The RG550DX is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1992. It was produced in Japan by FujiGen.

The RG550DX features a basswood body bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 24-fret maple fingerboard with dot inlays which match the finish color. Components included Ibanez pickups mounted in a color-matched mirrored pickguard with V7/V8 humbuckers flanking an S1 single-coil, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge, and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG550DX was discontinued after 1993 when it was essentially replaced by the RG550LTD.
