NGD: Ibanez RG550

Woohoo! Didn't think I'd get it but I'm totally stoked!!!

Gots an RG550 coming this week. Thinking of putting on a blue pickguard, plates, truss rod cover, knobs and pups.













Time to butter up the wife with gifts.

Re: NGD: Ibanez RG550

Was it on the bay last night? I saw that exact guitar on there and thought about placing a bid, impulse buy really, but I came to my senses and decided not to. Not a good time money wise. Great looking guitar. What's the extra mini switch for?

I would, that or a mirror pickguard would look good, as well as a white pickugard and white pickups and accessories...

Re: NGD: Ibanez RG550

it was on the bay. I wanted a nice maple neck Ibby that was cheap and I never really saw any 550's in that color with a maple neck Kinda reminds me of a 770DX without the sharkfins (that will make Dee happy.

I was thinking maybe getting matching dot inlays a la the 565. That would be cool.

Not sure what that switch is for. I just noticed that when I went searching for a replacement pickguard. I wrote the guy, see what he says.

Sweetness! I'd go with a white or pearl pickguard too; maybe white pickups. I'm guessing the toggle changes the config of the H-S-H switch. That seems to be a popular mod. And the Original Edge seems in decent shape.
Killer score!

Re: NGD: Ibanez RG550

hmm, white pearloid would look pretty classy. Maybe better than the blue

Like that LB Jem with one? What was that model again? Anyone have a pic of it?

...It might have something to do with the Seymour Duncan that's in the bridge...
