Should I?

should I buy my friend's 555? it's just sitting here in my house with no trem on it, cause honestly he's never gonna gonna get a trem for it, he doesnt use it, it's just here at my house sitting on my guitar case (my 7vwh is in the case )

so yeah i'd figure I'd buy it, and have someone paint it mystic dream and have someone replace the fretboard with ebony, maybe pop a OFR or route and edge into it


good idea?

Re: Should I?

You could probably get a better guitar for that, and it doesnt sound like your freind is going to take it back so whats the point of buying it .

Waste of time and money.

Go and buy an RG550 or 2550.

Yeah, get a 550 or just start a custom from scratch, sounds like you'd replace everything anyway.

I'd buy it just for the hell of it for $250. If you were to part it out, selling the body, neck, evo's, tuners, nut, and the pickguard separately, you'd probably make a profit.

Who'd want a 555 neck?

Re: Should I?

Seriously...with all THAT money you could probably just order a guitar from Legacy in the first place...

Get a beat up RG 550 if you plan on doing mods, that way you'll get the edge and a sweet neck. Beat up ones will easily sell for $300ish...

Good 'nuff for FLO... anyway, people overpay for any neck on e-bay with an Ibanez logo on it.
