Well I bought a prestige last month, and ever since then Ive been wanting an early rg550. Finding one is not too easy though, I saw a desert yellow one go for 750 on ebay last week quickly. So I decided I was gonna sell one of my zakk wylde epi's, I only really play the buzzsaw cause it has the active emg's in it and the bullseye doesnt, so it doesnt get played too much. So I thought I had mine sold friday night , but the dickhead never showed.
So sat morning, I posted an add on cl that said I was looking for an early rg 550. Within 3 hours a guy messages me back. He bought one 19 years ago new and has been sitting in a closet for a while now. Bought from a music store here thats still in buisiness. So I offered my bullseye for it and he jumped on it. This thing is in great shape for how old it is. Has one nick in it, a lil belt rash on the backplate. It has a buzz on one of the pick ups, so Im dropping it off today hopefully to get that fixed. Im not 100% sure what this color is called, but I havent seen too many. Action is low, strings were real old. Im gonna throw some evos in it here soon, though about a different pick guard, but I think im gonna leave it black. Came with the original case too.

That looks really nice! How does that maple neck feel? I've never actually played one.
Edit: I actually meant fingerboard.

Nice guitar and I like the color but why would one need 3 almost identical ibanez guitars?
Anyways
HNGD!:cheer:


Lol, why not, each one is gonna have different pick ups in it. And this aint gonna be the last rg I buy either. Its not breaking my bank account or anything.

^^ Exactly, there is no problem with having multiple Ibanez guitars. ****, I was at 4 for a while, but sold one and am now back to 3.

550 is nice. Always wanted one, but I found a 570 pretty cheap on cl. Same thing, been sitting in a closet for most it's life.

Gotta love craigslist. There is always somebody thats wants something you have and there is always somebody who has something you want. Sounds like the perfect trade for you. Congrats man and have fun shreddin

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
