Hi..im new. Just got a RG2550EGK...wow

Hello all.. nice place you have here!

I can say that I have been here before browsing but have never had the need to post untill now. Thank you all for the information that I have obtained here in my buying desicion.

I didnt have a chance to check it out completey because I drove home at lunch since I saw Sweetwater's fedex tracking told me that the guitar was delivered at my house. (sitting on the porch in the cold by the way :-|)

Very impressed so far! The quality and craftsmanship is bar none...very good.
I've been playing just over 15 years (mostly metal)and have had about every kind of guitar possible. I was looking for a fun backup guitar as I use a Les Paul classic. Which I might add is a completly different animal :-)

I will post some pics and give a full review possibly later tonight.
Thought this may be helpful as I see a few people looking to buy this model and are still uncertain.

By the way..the case friggin kicks ass man! That has to be a 130.00 dollar case for sure ......

Welcome

This post came at a great time! I am one of those people looking into the RG2550. If you could please post some additional info about the guitar it would be greatly appreciated. I also play metal in case it helps.

I gotta say, the new Ibanez range of RGs are really good imo

My recent buy on an RG1550 hasn't let me down yet and still sounds, plays and feels amazing after long hard playing

Re: Hi..im new. Just got a RG2550EGK...wow

i will say what i have been saying since i changed the pickups on mine.. change the pickups you wont regret it , you will get a much bigger sound , not so thin . apart from that the rest of the guitar is rock solid. my main axe . i will soon post some pics of the newly re finished and nothing like its original look rg2550 (just waiting on a phone call from the luthier)

the only thing i noticed is when we got really hot over here the lovly mirror decal developed a strange bloom effect on some of the edges , wasnt bad but detracted a little , may be a one off or may be something to be aware of. whatever its only a cosmetic issue and not a bad one.

hope you enjoy your rg

What did you change on your RG2550? I plan on modding mine as well. Don't worry about me trying to duplicate it, I already have my mods planned out.

pickups ,scratchplate , logo , colour (pics soon) will most lilly change the scratchplate again when i get it back depending on how it looks .

pickups are breed, neck
blue velvet
tonezone , bridge

changed a good guitar into a killer guitar, my wife noticed the differance when i first plugged it in , i had a wall of sound instead of a hedge

LOL

We are doing the same mods except I might throw in different pickups and remove the middle one. I thought I would be the only one replacing the logo, but I guess I was wrong!

What color are you doing it and which logo are you putting on? Are you doing a matching headstock?

original style logo and its mirror gold , yes to the matching headstock, and the colour will be seen soon

i figure if your going to re spray and stuff then its not a prestige anymore (well cosmeticly) so why stick with the same logo, plus it causes the luthier heaps of hassles trying to mask it off , so replace it .

keep your eyes open for my post soon for the finished job

I can't wait to see it! You will have to wait a little while to see mine. I still have to buy the guitar.

Congrats. The new RG series are definitely awesome (especially the 2570).

the only reason why i didn't buy the 2550 was because i was gonna swap the pickups out- so i got the 1550 instead. both the 1550 & 2550 are quality Ibanez RGs IMO.
