Hi first post here.

Here's my question. I've searched high and low and just can't find anywhere to buy an RG1550MZ. I'm in LA, CA.

I can't post a link since it's my first post but the guitar is on the product list at ibanez.co.jp

Basically I am looking for a RG prestige with a black body and maple fingerboard. RG1550MZ is it but not in the US?

There is the RG1550L but I'm not left handed

I just found the JEM505 and this one might do it. I wasn't looking for a Vai guitar anyway. So to me it's not a boring, plain JEM like some people have been saying. I would just swap the pickups and pickguard, truss rod cover, etc. Edge bridge would be nice to have too. The only thing is it's kinda pricey.

So in sum, I'm weighing the costs of ordering a 1550MZ from outside the country or just ordering a JEM505 locally. Furthermore, I was also going to swap the pickups in the 1550MZ anyway. So I think cost wise I should end up going for the JEM505.

Thanks for reading and any feedback. Really like this forum so far. Cheers.

Re: RG1550MZ

I'm pretty sure the guitar you seek is either Japan only or Japan and maybe Europe. I think you can't go wrong with either guitar. But if you want the original edge bridge then definitely go for the 505...Also you get different frets. The 1550 would of came with Jumbo and the 505 has the 6105 size frets. I like both...tough decision! I say go for the 505 cause you get the original edge and the vai grip on the guitar.
