Re: Not sure what to do?

I think every guitarist should have a strat in their arsenal especially a nice one like a 50th anniversary one, I'd keep it, then again, the RG 2550 is a nice guitar and you like the way it plays and sounds go for that. You might regret getting rid of the strat though.

For the future: Strat

For playability and versatility: 2550

Get whichever one is harder (or more expensive) for you to find, although you should think of resale value too

Keep the strat like Flo said every guitarist needs a strat in their arsanal. Save up some money and get a used RG550 .

Regards

I'd make the trade, but then I'm not a big Fender fan...

^Me too. I'd make the trade but this coming from a guy who owned two Strats and a Tele and ended up selling them and developing a total dislike for Fender altogether.

If you like and play the Strat at all keep it. You already have an RG.
