just got a Ibanez RG550XX RFR!!! (Pictures)

I was originally going to save for PGM401 but when this offer came up it was too good to refuse, i got it from here from Dazza1004

It's an Ibanez 20th Anniversary RG550XX in road flare red!

I paid 600 and it is MINT, honestly it looks completely new, not a single dent on it!

My extra cash will be spent on pickups

Pics!









With the PGM

Mmm, I'm not a fan of the bright colours, but that's a nice one. Enjoy

glad you are enjoying it fella.

Where have I seen that PG before ?

I quite liked the original pickups in the RG. I have BKP nailbombs in my DY, they are a good match.

Hey mate, loving the guitar. I have not a clue how to change the tuning to standard though :P I'll get it set up professionally soon though so that's cool.

I had BKP's in my PGM301 (Check here http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum...ht=pgm301+bare) and really didn't like them...maybe the Nailbomb is a different story though.

I've just ordered a Dimarzio Tone Zone for the bridge pickup but i think I'll leave the neck pickup alone as it sounds great, really thick.

Did you leave the middle stock and have nailbombs in the bridge and neck? As I'm considering putting a Blue velvet in the middle

Aside form here I post on ultimate guitar, racer x boards and the BKP forums occasionally, that might be where you saw my PGM.

I've noticed the strings need a change but once again, I've not a clue! Any video recommendations on youtube?

Thanks again for the guitar mate, i absolutely love it, hope you spend your 600 wisely! I feel as if i did

Last question :P Did you see me almost stack it badly over the ice as i walked off with the guitar?

Your not helping my G.A.S. You know how hard it is to find a RFR 550 in Australia?
