Thumbs down RG2550E updated neck!!

The very week of Christmas I bought myself a RG2550E - complete with stupid plain pearl dot inlays.

Today, a whole month later, I decide to visit ibanez.com and what do I see?

WEDGE SHARKTOOTH INLAYS

WTF?!


Talk about ruining my day.

Re: RG2550E updated neck!!

take it back and order a new one. Most places have a 45 day return policy. The small hit might be worth it for you to be 100% happy with the guitar. You could also try to sell it here and see if you can get close to enough to buy the one you really want (the 07 model).

Sharktooth inlays or not, you have yourself a nice guitar =)

Re: RG2550E updated neck!!

ghost shark teeth look cooler than the full ones IMHO. i like them and wish they put them on the vital silver version of the RG2550. maybe the silver ones will be in warehouse sales soom. very nice axe.
