1987 rg550 in Heather Pearl value

Thinking of selling an 87 Ibanez rg550 in Heather Pearl. Has a neck finish crack on both sides of neck< on body> but is just cosmetic. Has dings and a couple spots of paint missing on back and top strap button.

Plays great. The Original Edge trem is amazing.

I think this color is pretty rare.

Idea of a price I might be able to sell it for?

A pic would be great - 87 is a sweet year - I would guess 400-650 with case
and in good 8.5 condition if all is stock or close to it.

Re: 1987 rg550 in Heather Pearl value

You didnt mention that it had an all maple fretboard... ok.. i'll give you $250 for it .


lol.. just kidding. i think maple fretboards are better to shred on.. I dont know why?? it just is for me. good looking guitar. but i think auctioning it off may bring you close to 400-450. it will depend on if someone really wants it bad. go take a look at the ending auctions of similiar rg 87-91 ibanez rg 550s..

Yes just bought it. There is a guitar an hour from here that is one of a kind I have been eyeing for months.

If I asked 475 shipped for this would that be fair?

Re: 1987 rg550 in Heather Pearl value

that's not outlandish, if someone was sweet on the color I'm sure they would take it for that much. See if you can clean the fretboard up a little, it can't hurt. Also, the pickups do not look stock (V1/S1/V2).

The pickups look stock. The originals from 87 did not have v1/v2 written on them until later. I never seen this color from the original line up, i thought they were only red, yellow and black at first but who knows.

I thought Heather Pearl was only available in 1989.

Its an 87. There are 2 others documented here in this color that serials are also 87. Must have been very few of them.

Re: 1987 rg550 in Heather Pearl value

Also, didn't the 1987 rg550 models have matching colored headstocks?

Not this model. The other 2 documented here are identical.
