I was originally going to save for PGM401 but when this offer came up it was too good to refuse

It's an Ibanez 20th Anniversary RG550XX in road flare red!

I paid £600 and it is MINT, honestly it looks completely new, not a single dent on it!

My extra cash will be spent on pickups

Pics!

I usually hate Ibanez guitars, but I actually like the look of that one. It looks cool and you don't see many orange guitars.

Nice guitar, dude. I think Justin Shekoski from Saosin plays the same one. I'm not an RG fan, don't like the necks, but if that's what you're into then I'm sure it's awesome.

I quite like it!

Nice purchase!

You've read it, you can't un-read it!

its nice but i think the black pickguard ruins it. You should switch it out for a mirror guard or something, at least I think that would make it more pleasing to the eye.

Im sure it plays like a beast. How much was it?

Professionally lacquered too soo it never ever comes off now i have a 2nd guitar the PGM will be spending most of its life in its case because of its huge sentimental value to me.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!!!

It cost me £600 as stated in the first post

I was intending to change all pickups but the neck pickup is a beast! really fat and smooth

The Bridge will have a tone zone installed though.

Even though orange is my favourite colour in the world without anything being a close second, it doesn't look good. It's the black that messes it up.

BTW., how thick are those strings, they look like snakes!
#34
Don't know mate, they are definitely no higher than gauge 9

Update- i will NOT be replacing neck pickup, wow this pickup is amazing, I shall put the Tone Zone in the Bridge though

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I'm liking it even more than my PGM!!

I think that's because the pickups are much more forgiving and the action is lower though

I <3 my PGM

haha, cheers sharpant.

before you swap pickups, you might want to try swapping the magnets in the bridge and neck pickups. i'm not sure precisely how to do this myself, but corduroy_EW (owner of rockmonkey pickups- i'm not sure if that's his exact name on here, it's something like that though) always suggests this with the ibanez v7 and 8 as they have a ceramic mag in the neck and alnico in the bridge, which is kind of backwards. maybe you could message him to see if he'd tell you how to do it.

I like the color tbh. So many sunbursts, quilted finishes, etc. It's hard to find someone with a bizarre solid finish now a days. Hell, I repainted my RG Safety green. Nice guitar man, how's the original Edge?
