Re: J custom vs RG550
depends where you are in your guitar playing life.. I owned a DY Rg550 in 1990 when I was around 15. used it for 10 years before buying another guitar, and it did everything I needed. if you prefer to sepnd the rest of your money on other things, then you wont regret buying the 550. You can take that guitar and tour around the world with it and it will keep on comming back for more..
That J Custom you speak of, will be awesome also.. Between my 550 which I still own and my J Customs, the J Customs play better, but every once in a while I grab my 550 and still enjoy playing it..
Its all about the money, if you prefer not to spend so much, the 550 will do everything...
good luck !!
