New lefty guy! with a RG query ........

Hi all, just joined, not sure what took me so long to register, but here we are. Good to see a few lefty players on this forum, lefties unite!

But the query I have is I was all set to go for a new Ibanez RG550, when I noticed a s/h RG655 in the cobalt blue, from 2017 or 18, not sure. How much better quality ( or comfort, etc.) would the 655 be over the 550?

I am guessing being from the Prestige series, the 655 would be a better buy, but I don't know. Thanks!

They are both about the same build quality wise. Pickups will be the difference here.

Genesis are entry level line, , still good guitars but maple boards will not have any fret end treatment of fretboard edge either. The 655 will have some of both, and some would argue better pickups.
