1999 Rg550

I always wanted an Ibanez Jem or that type guitar to add to my collection & I figure this will possibly be better quality than the new Jem JR thats out .
I have a chance to buy/trade for a 1999 Ibanez RG550 made in japan according to the serial number what are you thought on this guitar ...how does it compare to the late 80's rg's & what would this thing be worth ?.
I am a friend of the owner so I have borrowed to try & it's really like able guitar .

RG550's are classics. There are many here that a huge fans. But it all comes down to how much you like the instrument. I LOVE THEM, but it matters how YOU feel.

It's YOU that will be playing it and hearing it.

Necks are a little different, doesn't not have the square heel joint but I love mine! I've seen them go $350 - $500, but most people asking more or so.
