Short story long, I've been through a couple Ibanez's (EX/RG/7DBK/90HAM) and right now I've only got a PRS CE24 and a Strat so I'm looking to add one back. After a bit of lurking, I think I've made up my mind and have my eyes set on a 20th RG550 in desert yellow.
It seems to match my budget (about 700 max) and wants (thin and flat maple neck, Edge trem, AANJ, Japan..)
A few questions...Is the ubiquitous neck crack still pretty standard? And, anything else I should consider? I've found one online for 600 that is in great shape except for the neck crack and is more stock and is in overall better shape than those on the bay currently. Comes with case, strap, etc.
Thanks in advance all and sorry for the damn noob question!
