Double NGD. Dream guitars incoming!

I'm not even sure what to say at this point. So have some pr0nz.

A 2007 Ibanez V Blade and a 1992 RG550





Dat access



The RG's got an Edge and Suhr Aldrich pups(gonna change those out) and the the V Blade's got whatever kind of TOM-style bridge that is and D-Activators. Both play amazingly and are in great condition. I got the RG from a guy on HC, and the V Blade 'new' in a shop on a recent trip to Germany. I'll make sure to get proper reviews in after the honeymoon phase.

Completely forgot about this while making the thread: Ibanez family shot!

Re: Double NGD. Dream guitars incoming!

The purple one looks more like a 450, unless the previous owner decided to add a jackplate.

Also had this conversation on SS.org, everything else checks out and points to it being a 550. 450s and 550s have different rear routes, right?

The 550 will have a small Jack cavity cover--the 450 will not.
You didn't post a pic of the back, so I've got no way of knowing.
Does it have the small plate?

^ Yep. The back of the guitar is identical to every other 550 I've seen. It's only that jack that doesn't match up.

Re: Double NGD. Dream guitars incoming!

Awesome! Happy double NGD. Those v-blades are cool. If you're getting rid of the Aldriches PM me. I can never get enough of them, and would likely be interested in buying or trading for them.

Cheers!

Awesome--a 550 it is! I just hate it when people remove the flush mount jacks and put plates on.

The flush mounts sure as hell look a lot nicer, but I don't mind either way.
