Question **Any Knowledge On The RG2550 Before I Buy ?**

Re: any knowledge on the RG2550 before i buy ?

plays nice, i like the neck , the pickups are ok ,,,,, i changed mine to breed blue velvet and tonezone and its now awsome, the rest of the guitar is good ,, but i would say get something a little cheaper and then wack different pickups in it (hey i know when you set your heart on a guitar you will usually get it regardless)

since buying mine i have changed the pickups and am in the process of haveing it re finished, all bieng said i love my rg 2550 now and it gets played more than my jem and others.

The RG2550 is the model that replaced the RG550 back in 2003. If you're a bit short on cash getting a used RG550 is might be a better option.

IMO, the RG550 would be a better option overrall, better trem. Edge Pro is inferior to the LoPro/Edge tbh.

Change the pickups before you even plug it in, the standard Ibanez ones are notoriously crappy and quickly turn to mush at volume!

Make sure a Wizard neck is what you REALLY need it can make certain barre chords low down the neck problematic unless you have huge hands like Vai!
