Well, maybe.... but those knobs(i got the same metal ones on B.C.Rich) and an additional switch, and Seymour Duncan for a bridge pickup -- this all looks like it was modified. Shark tooth inlay could say that it's probably not the pure 550 one, 550EX one(go to Ibanez site, it looks pretty like that)

I would guess:

Some kind of prestige guitar ... never seen that finish in a 550 before i think . The knobs could of course be changed .. but isnt that like RG knobs? umh ...

Or. Maybe theres a custom project involved :P

No, really, it looks like exactly RG550EX, but modified a bit ;) Even those metal knobs are there!

Yeah , looks like it..
But different finish though..
The dude probably just took his time modifying it ... ..

But yes , you are right... i think

Looks to me like a 450 w/ a few custom touches.

I thought it might be an older 770, but they had a maple fretboard.
