got my 2550egk and all i can say is>>>>>>>>

WOW!my first ibanez .neck is awesome(best i have tried),pups are good(not as good as my sd pups but hey for stock pups they sound pretty good).everything is excellant.except intonation.they gotta make a tool to easily set it.
everythnig on this guitar screams quality
was tearing my hair out with setting the trem at first but after 4 hours i figured it out
everything is set(thanks to this site and rich's website)
it just takes time
very happy camper

It's "tremolo" and you're right in that they misnamed the device. A vibrato is really what it is and I don't really know the history behind why it is called that.

Nice score on the 2550! I had a 2570 for a few weeks (I had to return it due to a neck defect), and I really liked it. Those stock pickups are not bad at all. They're similar to Dimarzio Super 2 and Super Distortion, by the way.
