If you buy one from Rich (Ibanezrules.com) he'll set it up, touch it up, and give you the little extra screws to lock the new trem studs.
For a little extra he'll put them in for you. :-)
I've not heard anything bad about these, I have a 1990 RG550 that I've beaten to death and it's still going strong. I did swap the pups though.
Originally it had the V1-S1-V2 combination and I put a PAF Pro in the neck, a Fender American single, and a Super Distortion in the bridge.
Just recently I changed those to a set of Evos and an HS-2 wired as a single coil . . . VERY happy with it now.
All in all they are tough guitars, with a great feel (in my opinion) and nice sound, once you get those muddy Vs out of there. :-) Not that the Vs are BAD, they just aren't as good as a "real" pickup.
