cant get this in to this guys thick skull

#110491697836

this guy swears this guitar is an RG550

i have been sending him messages explaing why it isnt an RG550...

his first reply to me was "you are wrong...im keeping it" (closed the auction)

anyway i responded back explaining in detail to him..."no you are wrong"...and why, with specs as to why it isnt an RG550....

i told him i thought it was an EX model...

you can just look at it at first glance and tell it isnt an RG550 (several reasons as to why it isnt a 550)

why do people do this????????????

Re: cant get this in to this guys thick skull

exactly what i was thinking.......

POS!!!....and why put an ugly (my opinion) Strat neck on an Ibanez

in the words of the late Bernie Mack..it should be a "sinny sin sin", to do that

this guy still believes it is an RG550

Re: cant get this in to this guys thick skull

this is what this guy replied to me with this morning.....bunch of BS...

what an idiot.................even his so called luthier is oblivious........


"It may be your opinion about the body, but you are entitled to it.
I had a professional luthier check the scale length/settings because of the neck being Fender.
It checked out perfect. I asked him what body it was and he told me an older model RG 550 and he showed me a dealer's catalog photo...same except having the uglier Fender neck. As to why the neck may have been changed was likely due to the Ibanez necks splitting up at the headstock, a common thing.
As far as keeping it...well, I was very hesitant to list it and have played it. I have an Ibanex Sabre and the one listed plays and SOUNDS much better.
On a couple guitars I've had and sold on **** I had gotten emails from lookers who had negative comments about the guitar, like the 3 I had on this one, including your email.
It's like they say, you gotta play it to judge it.
Construction quality, sound such as pickups & so on, the way it "fits" you when you play it, are all judgement things that have to be hands on.
I have found that some Ibanez guitar models mimic other ones, like a short production guitar that then gets modified with one or the other selling more units and becomes better known as that model's recognizable look.
Nothing personal on you, I'm sorry if it seemed I offended you. Thanks for your opinion, it hepled me decide to keep it. (that and tax refund just arrived...you know, the money thing. I do like the guitar enough to add it to my "keeper" collection)"
