87' RFR RG-550....Part 2

Ok, I'll try this again.........87' RFR RG-550, really smoking condition and a real nice score, if I do say so myself.








And here are the only noticable flaws in the finish......not too shabby for an 87'......made in March of that year, so probably one of the first 1,000(?)

I love that worn in maple neck. I can't wait till I get all the stuff together to get my 550 maple neck on a 770 body with HB2, SB1, and Paf Pro in the neck.

If I had it, I'd play it! Good score indeed!

Ah, very nice. RG550 in Road Flare was my first Ibanez and that's where the love affair began for me. Great score, uberthrall.

Pink Dimarzio's. The bridge pickup looks like a PAF Pro.

Re: 87' RFR RG-550....Part 2

Is that a screw-in tremolo arm?

Well spotted. It's been modded with a Floyd arm socket.
