Re: Help with two Ibanez- ID & quality?
Done deal- I'm now the proud owner of a 1990 RG550 in Coral Mist Metallic... and somewhat sad non-owner of a 97 520QS.
The 550 has stock pickups, which I was actually happy about because I wanted to know what the much-maligned V6, S1 & V7 sounded like. I understand now that they're not fantastic, but I was pleasantly surprised at how not bad they are.
Disappointed somewhat with the shape the guitar is in cosmetically, but I'll love it just the same. Just paranoid about the neck crack, but I think it's stable. May be fixing that.
So now just to tweak the setup, figure out what I want it to sound like, and possibly choose new pickups to suit.
Will post pics soon...
