NGD! 1990 DY RG550, excellent condish - Pics inside!

Hey everyone!

I received my very first RG 550 from a fellow member (Thanks shredhead, the body is pristine!). And i must say i am quite content. Over this last year, i`ve put my hands on many guitars. I`ve owned and sold probably close to 20 - 30 in these two years and still going. This week, i received a 75`Fender strat covered in another topic, along with this baby today. She is amazing. My favorited and most coveted axe would be my 87`Ibanez Jem 777SK, and this guitar has a fair amount of things in common. What i like is that i feels pretty close to the jem, without having to be too in your face. Mind you, the finish gives it that effect anyways. The playability is just unparalled. I was very dissapointed with my 2006 Rg1570 and any other new Rg`s and or jem`s i`ve played. There`s just something that the older Ibanez`s have that i respond well too.

Anyways, here`s another one in the gang now. I think it`s gonna fill the void left by my long lost Jem 7 PBK in ways that are much different.

Here are some pictures!

Thanks again Shredhead!










enjoy

Re: NGD! 1990 DY RG550, excellent condish - Pics inside!

I just spent a good 30 minutes playing her and i am blasted away. I don`t know if those pick ups are original, but that`s exactly the sound i`ve been looking for. this guitar is godly. I`ve played so many guitars, both expensive and rare, and this one just found it`s place on the top. I don`t know if all 550`s are like this, but this thing is killed. Access to all frets is great, color and pickguard schema is wild and the thing plays it self. It feels nice to play too. I wouldn`t clean the board, i have so many clean maple boards, i like breaking them in, but this one is done for me. Anyways, i am very impressed. I could get my SK to sound more like me too, but although i like Paf Pro`s, i like something with a bit more crunch, and i wouldn`t feel right replacing the pick ups on her. she`s been every bit as original as the day she left the factory in 87`and imma keep it that way.

Is it definitely a '90? I thought only 89's came with the black headstock? Minor point, I know...

Congrats.

the catalog ones did but they must have been made early on during 1990 because mine had a black headstock too

Well a lot of ibby's have plates that are off. This one indicates 90', but it's not impossible for it to be an 89. Guess i should pull the neck and check the electronics too. But that'll be for another time
