Look what I just purchased!

Hi guys,

I have just purchased another Ibanez RG550 on that ole auction site.
It is that "dayglo orange" "flare red" colour. And it looks very cool.

It has a white DiMarzio in the neck, and it looks in very good condition.
Oh, and I thought it was a bargain at just 195!!

Lovely, well all I need to do is get rid of that PGM30 now.
But here is the auction link if ya wanna see it:-
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tem=3708643508

Sorry If I broke rules by posting that. But I cant show it any other way!
Thanks.

Nice find! It seems to have a pretty clean fretboard although you never can tell in pics like that.

By the way, is there any coincidence that you're name is "the godfather" and your e-bay name is Ibanez boy sex?! Perhaps the authorities need to look into.....Oh wait, its "essex" I appologize. I thought I was on to something, but that's where you live, so, nevermind.

lol, I dont like Ibanez guitars that much! And yes, the little grubby county of Essex is where I live. I am pretty chuffed with the find too.
The guy who is selling it is a really nice guy. Had a few chats in emails and that, exchnaged information no probs, and he is an Ibanez nut too!

Man, if you are lucky enough (actually unlucky is more appropriate) and your thingy can fit in the monkey grip, who is to stop you.

That reminds me of story that John Finn told over at Vai.com and is not related but it's mighty funny.

lol, I love it when that happens.
Thats why I bought it quickly, cos I knew you guys on here would pounce on it. But no hard feelings. lol

And no it wont stay standard. It will be modded to the nines! It already has a white PAF in the neck, so I only need the other 2!

I doubt I will do anything to the neck or body. I dont wana ruin a perfectly good RG body. And I love the rg550's so much. I dont really wana tough it apart from the pickups. But as I said, one is already done for me. Obviously it will have a nice scrub-up and service. But I dont plan on touching it other than that!

I have had it for about 2 weeks now. I only just got time to take some piccies. I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase. It has been played, but there is still plenty of life left! It plays like absolute butter and was a bargain for 195. The pickups were all changed by the previous owner too and they sound good.

Well, here are the pics:
