Picked up a bargain

I managed to pick this lot up at the weekend from our favourite site. Needs rewiring, setting up and I have a set of evos which are going in.
It came with the DY neck neck on, but I think I'm going to leave the jem neck on it

Nice grab. Only thing that would make it better would be a matching headstock.

True, it looked a bit odd with the dy neck on it. But I can live with the black jem headstock. I was thinking about having it swirled, but I really like the red finish. So i'll keep it as it is.
Oh yeh, the best part was that it cost me around £150 (around $300)

Yeh, it was advertised as an Ibanez guitar with a spare neck! I was lucky as I saw the auction just as it came up and I hit the BIN button as soon as I realised it was a jem neck! And you're right, it really is a nice neck to play on.
I picked it up on Saturday and the guy had bought it from his mate for £150 and as he hadn;t touched it for 6 months just wanted his money back

Aaron, I probably will sell the DY neck, but haven't decided yet mate.

It's a RG550 body, edge trem. The bridge pup is a PAF Pro. No idea what the singlecoil and the neck pups are!
