I was looking around on the net and found 2 Greco 335 type guitars on Digimart.
Both are like a Gibson 335 1964 model.Stop tailpiece and block inlay.
Both are set neck.
One is a SA-550 and the other a SA-90.
What is the difference in the models?And do they have FEB?

Friend of mine has the SA-90 (cherry red '64 small block inlay model). It is a replica of the Cream Clapton ES-335, including the chunky Grover-style tuners.
He changed back to Kluson style.
It is a mighty fine guitar, plays like a dream.
Here is one

To answer the OP's question the SA-550 is an older guitar made in the early 1980's but a cheaper model, the SA-90 is a little newer made in the 1990's but a "higher grade" guitar.

The SA-550 was 55,000 yen in the early 1980's when it was made which is $591.00 in today's money.

The SA-90 was 90,000 yen in the 1990's when it was made which is $967.00 in today's money.

Although I have never played either (I had a SA-900 and now own a SA-1200) the SA-90 will probably be a better quality guitar and the main construction difference between the years is that the SA-90 will probably have a long neck tenon and the SA-550 will have a short tenon.

I love these Greco guitars, I had a 1980 SA-900 that I sold to a member here and I purchased a real 1965 Gibson ES-335. I've since sold the Gibson and now play a 1980 Greco SA-1200 and I could not be happier. I am also searching for another SA-900.
