Re: NGD Ibanez RG550 Candy Apple ...almost!

Thank you guys!
I havenīt played this 550 that much but my last 560 wins the competition,
i have it for 5 days but itīs already my favorite guitar of all. BTW i forgot to check wich single coils are on my 560, do you think they are S1 or Super8A?? The serial seems to be an early one, F734... Sorry for mix the posts.

Instead of waiting to find the original parts i decided to make them myself in a laser cutting machine that i have. Work in progress...



Some stuff that gonna be cutted...


The hardest part to get are the tuner pegs, anyone knows if there is some place where i can buy them?

Did you just want to replace the peg heads? I may have some spares I can pull off some other spare tuners.

Thanks, appreciate it.

That's a rare color to find on RG550s. I haven't seen much of these. See the FRF more often.

That neck looks amazing!
