NGD: Mint 01 RG550

I've been wanting this guitar for so long. I used to own couple Ibanez but sold it to fund other stuffs. Finally had funds and been looking for a black RG550 on different sites. Saw this one on Guitar Center used section with only 2 pictures. It looked like it needed a good cleaning and setup from pictures alone. I thought about itfor two weeks then finally decided to pull the trigger. Of course I expected to get a USED guitar that needs attention. But when I picked it up from Local Guitar Center yesterday, it looks unplayed. No marks on frets, volume and tone knobs are difficult to turn, not even a mark on locking nuts! The guitar does need attention because it was unplayed!

Here's a picture after I put new strings and straps, set the neck angle and action:




It also came with no brand gigbag. I wonder if this is what they were shipped with:


It also came with tags and manuals!



Wonder where this guitar has been for the past 15 years!

wow that is in great shape. We should keep it quiet but GC has some really cheap used Ibanez axes in fantastic shape. Local review, pickup, return is great.

GC is GREAT for used Ibbys...just be careful. They don't always know that they have. Sometimes to your advantage and sometimes NOT!

Yes, I've seen a RG550LTD sold less than $400.
