Smile Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

i have a blue rg550ltd (dab) with lopro edge, sharktooth inlays, binding, zero fretware (jumbo frets) original pickups (v series) mirror scratchplate, all mint except three little dings at the bottom of the body next to the input jack (very VERY small dings!) I just bought it off ****, came with a Ibanez hardcase too :-o

Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

I've got a '94 RG550LTD in black. The bridge pickup was swapped out for a SD Screaming Demon.

ciao Mauro, se intendi quella viola vero, ce ne sono poche, almeno in Italia, ma di LTD nere ce n' a pacchi.

(hi Mauro, if you mean the purple one you're right, there are not many around, especially in Italia, but there are so many black LTDs around)

scherzi? pieno di RG col Lo-Pro in Italia. quasi pi di quelle con l'Edge.

(you kidding? there are so many Lo-Pro equipped RGs in Italia, almost more than the "Edged" ones)

Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

Okay, this is a stupid question.... I've got a '94 RG550 with the same looking neck (dark color with sharktooth inlays). Is that neck "rosewood" or "maple" ?? I always thought it was rosewood. To me, a maple neck would be like a Telecaster or Stratocaster neck looks like.

Do I have an LTD ?? If I recall from the price sheet from '94, that's one of the main differences.

Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

Sorry, I guess I wasn't specific enough. In the 1st post's link, the 1st catalog page shows a blue RG with *what* neck ?? I'd call that maple with no fretboard. Well, the fretboard is simply built-in. Is that correct ??

Just checked the catalog cuts and price list from ibanezrules.com and I do have an LTD, the RG550LTDBK, to be specific.

Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

the color variation of 550 LTD I know :
black
laser blue or dark adriatic blue..? at least it's blue (not so sure..)
purple neon
pewter ( gray like)
new penny

I saw the black and purple neon too many times, they are most common, but i rarely seen the new penny( 99 model) and pewter( 97-98 model).

any other color not listed here?

Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

mato : that guitar is real nice, you know how to take care of your baby, don't you?
and no..it's not JEM junior....it's WAYYYYYYYY Better than JEM junior.

I've seen alot 550LTD purple neon which has color degraration( i hope i pronounce it correctly) on the finish, I'm not sure the owner did not take care of the guitar accordingly or maybe that kind of finish is easy to fade away it's brightnes.

i wanted a PN myself, but could not find one with decent condition nowdays..

Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

They came in pink aswell. Actually looks pretty good, but i had to go for black. When i bought mine there was only 3 colours to choose from.
