My Christmas present to myself

I found her in a small guitar store I happened to pass by, and I went back yesterday to get it. Plays like a dream. It's got the original Edge bridge and everything. And the colour..! With matching headstock

I might change pickups one day but they'll do fine for now.

You sure that's an original Edge? Looks more like a Lo Pro to me, although It's hard to tell from your crappy photo

Prick, he already said all he has for photos is a crabby webcam.

Nice guitar. I don't really like purple, but it looks good on that!

Oh, I found out it's a LoPro a few hours ago when checking the Floyd Rose Setup thread . I confused the two earlier on.

I reckon that the guitar probably was made after 1990 (but I don't know if RG550 sometimes came stock with LoPros instead of Edges, I suppose they did?)

Guitar Dater Project says it's a 1995.

...but the 550 doesn't appear in the 95 catalog. The 570 does, though, and apart from the routing it's the same guitar, right, so it was probably still available in 95. The catalog doesn't mention trems though. *looks for older catalogs*

edit: it's an RG550LTD (found it in the '94 catalog) and they come stock with LoPros. So there

I have the model from the year before, the RG550DX - laser blue finish with dot inlays but a maple fretboard

Nice ^^! Yeah, I noticed that most Ibanez guitars had maple fretboards back then (the LTD is the only 550 with a rosewood one). But I don't think maple would look as good with purple as with blue, so, good game.

I don't have a maple fretboard guitar

Now that is an awesome Ibanez... I agree it's a LOT nicer guitar than what you wanted earlier. Though I prefer the pre-AANJ Ibbys, they are made every bit as well as USA Jacksons and Japanese ESP.

Pickuup covers! Great idea.

What was that site again where you could build your own guitar in flash to try out colours? *thinks*
