An eBay listing to make you cry...

... or laugh.

Can you spot what may be wrong with this "RG550"?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ibanez-rg-550-/261544883833

I particularly like the "upgrade" to a TRS101.

Almost certain that's an old EX-series body.

I wondered if this was a spoof listing at first, but it seems serious, which is even more ridiculous.

That's just lame. Well, it's no wonder people call that evil bay, with all the scammers there.

It has been sold with that low price?

Oh, it was a fake.

I prefer to play the slow Jackson replacement necks since they have a better feel and tone for classic rock.
