I just picked up a 550! - used guitar

Well I didn't *need* it, as my wife pointed out, but I wanted it 'cause it's just so cool. I dunno what year it is just yet, but it looks to be sort of a blue-green with a matching headstock, blue mirror pickguard, a lo-pro edge, maple fingerboard with black dot inlays, V8/S1/mystery neck pup and the old neck joint.

* * I need to clean it and set it up and fix what seems to be a grounding problem but she's on her way to become a shiny new addition to my guitar collection. :thumbsup:

Nice! What did you pay? I have the 2 other colors in that style, the purple with purple mirror pickguard and the teal/green with green mirror pickguard, lopro's on both. I paid $250 for the purple w/o case and $275 for the green, w/case.

550's are such great guitars! and they can be had so cheaply, too... You get a whole lot of bang-for-the-buck when you invest in one of these great rawk axes... Congrats! :thumbsup:

I still want one in laser blue, but your right great guitars for the price. Plus like Rich says you can mod the hell out of them

And since they're Ibanez, there's very little "hell" in them. *:biggrin:

I just recently picked up a Desert Yellow one in pretty damn good shape. *Little neck/fretboard darkening, but the paint is almost spotless except for one hole in the back of the treble horn. *It looks like someone did a Ibanez-Jimi thing...Anyway, I just put on my Mirror pickguard from Jeannie and it rocks. *Now I'm saving up for the MC conversion to be done by Darren or Herc.

reckon the mirror scratchplate, matched headstock and blue colour make it a RG550DX, from around 92 or so.

I could be wrong though...
