Exclamation Is my RG550 legit?

Hi there, I'm new to this forum.
Just wanted to make user my newly aquired Ibanez RG550 is legit, and not a copy. Been told you guys could easily confirm or deny that.

Thanks

PS. The humbuckers are supposed to be DiMarzio PAF PROs.

EDIT: Also, What do I need to check / fix on the guitar. Do the frets need to be "grinded" (right word?), I already know the tremolo is to "high", etc?
Shoulg I let a music shop take it in and check / fix it?

Legit. Your string tension is a little high though

Re: Is my RG550 legit?

The only problem is that the angle of the tremolo is off. The springs need tightening so it lies flatter...
Great guitar.

Re: Is my RG550 legit?

Did you buy that on blocket? If so I was tempted to go and have a look at it because it was located really close to where I live in Solna.

Great find! =)

Re: Is my RG550 legit?

angående frets och om dom behöver slipas/krönas så får du bedöma lite själv. Ser dom slitna ut? Spelar den bra? Har du buzz på nåt ställe?

Vinkeln på trem är lättfixat =)

And to the rest of you, sorry for the swedish... will switch back now
