New '87 RG560

Just came in from the Bays of E! Oh god I think I'm in love.


everything is in astoundingly nice shape!!

the bridge looks BRAND NEW!! not even a scratch on it!! Hard to believe it is 25 years old!

THE NECK PLATE ISN'T EVEN WORN!!

some good looking numbers there

The case is even in astonishingly good condition!! I had no idea the guitar would be this nice. I suspect it was a student's guitar or something.
The odd thing is that this WAS played too, the frets are definitely broken in and the back of the neck is glossy from many a hand. I'm almost inclined to believe its fake!

In the end I payed just below $400 for it, $350 plus $30 shipping. Tell me that ain't a hell of a deal!

Re: New '87 RG560

The thing that I think is cool about this is that it isn't NOS, it was actually played.

I don't blame you for getting that 550, but I would have a hell of a time myself knowing I could only have one.

Re: New '87 RG560

Indeed, it looks practically NOS! I prefer HSS myself - did contemplate a white one a while back in a store I frequent.

Re: New '87 RG560

So I've been thinking: Dimarzio Fast Track-1 for the neck, Hs2 for the middle, and either an X2N or a D-activator for the bridge. Idk as far as colors go, but I'd think either all red or maybe white.

Re: New '87 RG560

I got my RG550 for $350. Ended up being a RG550 in RFR from '87. Favorite guitar.

damn dude i've seen those pull up to $700.

A few months back I was searching on Guitar Centers website and found a 1990 rg550 in Desert Yellow.... $375!!!! I ordered it right away, ended up costing just below $400 with shipping and everything. Originial case, dimarzio pickups...

the deals are out there every once in a while.

Re: New '87 RG560

Much congrats. You've seen my 560 and that was my workhorse guitar from '87 till until I got my 3120. If it ever came down to one Ibanez I could keep, it would be that one. Nearest and dearest to my heart.
