NGD! RG550M WH--Factory New 90' "Garage Treasure"

Hello,

i realy need to share this beautiful find.

It`s an RG550 build in 1990 in (now) Vintage White,almost Eggshell.
Was found in Germany when moving by an Guitar Collector who later sold it to me.
It was purchased and never played or even touched in almost 25 years,
except in the store at that time.
It looks like new out of the shop.


Also some original parts like an BackBox,User Manual and an nice Tweed Case
which smells like grandmas curtains.

It is hard to catch that wonderfull vintage white.
I put an White 2009 RG2550 Prestige for comparison in the fotos below.






















It will be realy hard to not playing this beauty.

Now that's a looker!

My teacher actually has a similar one but it has the matching headstock, which is rarer than the black headstock. His is pretty well used up though, he played it like crazy when he was younger

Haha yea,usually i play all my Guitars no matter how they look.
But this one really gives me headaches.
How to handle a flawless time traveled beauty like this one?
I'm not a collector but a player and feel kind of responsible for it.

OMG!! I have no other words for it......simply beautiful.

That thing belongs in a museum for future generations to see, admire, and wonder at......Seriously, how many OEM, showroom new, golden era RG's even exist out there anymore?

If you don't mind my asking....how much did you pay for it?

I paid around 850 Dollar for it,
witch is a price i am very happy with.
A White RG550 is My holy grail you know.

I don't know how many are left in this Condition,
i have never seen one.
Sometimes there are these Franken RG's where the most Parts are New
but not Original.

I realy would like to know if there is something like an Ibanez Museum?

Hoshino has a showroom here in Nagoya somewhere with a bunch of old school stuff supposedly. Next week I just might go take a look at see if I can get in to look around.
