My new (to me) '87 RG 550

Hey all, new to Jemsite because I've never owned an Ibanez. I've always loved the looks of the RG with a maple neck. Recently I saw someone wanting to move one so I made the deal and now I'm in the club. She's stock. I don't really think I am going to drop new pickups in her. Still getting used to the neck. Here she is....

Beautiful! The condition looks near-mint. Very nice, it seems like loads of '87s are popping up

Thanks. She's in pretty good condition. A couple of nicks and chips to be expected. My serial starts with 766. Not too far off from yours.

Sweet man, not easy to find these '87 monsters in mint condition... nice score! Maple doesn't do it for me however, so I sold the maple board RG but still rocking the rosewood RG from '87.

Thanks all. She's in really good condition considering some RG's that I've seen from this era. If you look at the pic of the back, there is still the paper on the input jack back plate. The guy never took it off. He even left his original sales receipt in the case.

Awesome and congratz! I want another RG550! The only one I found recently were pretty beat up or way too expensive.

Tell me about it. I sold my '91 RG570 years ago. Big mistake.
