Re: Ibanez RG2550 or Charvel San Dimas??
Keep the Dimas. If you "have too many guitars", getting rid of one while replacing it with another is only a temporary GAS fix anyway. Just add the RG if you REALLY wan't it.
I have a USA Charvel So-Cal (Transparent Ale) and two RG's ('95 US RG20, 2010 Limited 1420F)....no way I part with ANY of those just to add something else. For recording, I like the differences in tone they all offer, and the all alder CharvALE is a big part of that. As a matter of fact, my next guitar (soon as the tax money shows up here) is gonna be......wait........for...........it, a MIJ SAN DIMAS, lol!
Point is - you have a kinda "collectable" piece in your hands right now with that US Charvel Pro Mod as they are now done with those, prolly for good (from here on they come from Japan as everyone knows). Not saying the US models will eventually be sought after classics, but I dunno, with that line being done now, history may be kind to them, they probably won't be considered like other "dime-a-dozen" guitars either. So....KEEP IT.
DaylightDies does make a great final point though....you have to ask yourself: Am I a player or a collector? I never keep guitars or amps I won't use all the time, just bugs me to hang onto stuff I don't use. I have 3 or 4 guitars and a couple of heads and cabs because I'm not a gear collecting junkie. At some point ya gotta stop and just play.
