Re: Rg550Ex

they are good and priced buyer-friendly now, since the 1550 and 2550 are now prestige models.

Nice guitar. Not much else to say. Just a good, solid, made-in-Japan Ibanez RG.

Look through these catalogs: http://www.ibanezrules.com/catalogs/index.htm

You'll find it.

Ok, I am able to get one in a silver sand color practically mint for $350 so I think I'm going to get it. I'll post pics when I do.

Edit: I noticed in another thread you recommended the Ping tremolos. Do you know a place I can find one besides the "bay" in black.

Nice. Look fwd to the pics. Good luck with it. I might be wrong about those catalogs, btw. I thought I'd seen it but now I can't find it. Here's a pic from a UK catalog, I think.

Re: Rg550Ex

Hmm, so this guitar wasn't meant for the US market?

Re: Rg550Ex

Well, now I'm thinking maybe it wasn't. I know quite a bit about RG's but I don't have an answer to this question. I'd be interested to find out.

Re: Rg550Ex

I looked at the ibanez register and cant find any actual pics besides catalog ones, so I don't think this model sold to well.
