I gig and need well made, reliable instruments. Yes they have a reputation but why would I want to spend more and take a risk on an old RG550? It's white BTW.
I agree with you,i am a little sceptical buying a used old rg550. .
The problem with a new one though,is the resale value.Like you said you got it for 400gbp and it cost about 800gbp new.
I think the seller was in a rush to move it. If you're buying a guitar with resale value as one of your priorities maybe it's not really want you want in the first place. You can always buy used for the best price. However new RG550 Genesis guitars were going for around 650 - 700 GB at the time I got mine. I can see new white ones here now for 700 GB currently. The 2018s will come down again at some point if you wait...
