Re: RG550rxx...Should I?
Lmao everybody. The 550 is in good shape, it's from a friend of a friend. I mean 400$ is a nuts deal for a 20th cuz the prices on eBay are seriously nuts and the least I've seen it advertised for from people selling online has been around 6-700 minimum. For that I'd buy it and resell it for 5 or 6 bills flat but I bet any money I'd get it and find a lucky DY somewhere and be assed out lol. I really like the way the 550's play, I had an '87 550 Roadflare that was just.....friggin....I'll cry lol, but I no longer have it. Just like how I no longer have the 1550m, or the 3570z. 3 of the best playing RG's I've ever had. But they're gone. BUT, I do happen to have the '91 770 in PM and it really does play as smooth as smooth can cuz I grabbed a few pointers from the IbanezRules tech page and went to town lol. At the very least I will have the reissue 770 in blue in a couple weeks and that has a maple board, original wizard spec neck, original edge, the nice IBZ/USA pickups that are a BITCH to find lol and a bright color so I'm sure I will be happy. Now you ask why do I no longer have any of those other guitars?...I sold them to get a Carvin. I've had about no less than maybe 14 different Ibanez's in my life and I finally made it down to the 3 not including a Jem itself that I was happy with and I sold them to get a damn Carvin. It wasn't just any Carvin, though. It was a Jason Becker Carvin. But, I had to send it back. The very next day. So being guitarless and desperate I managed to get my hands on a Jackson Soloist SL3 for a very good deal and 2 days later traded even for the 1991 Ibanez RG770PM that I today possess and do not intend on boneheadedly selling because I gotta tell you it really, really reeeaaally left a hole in my heart lol. But either way I STILL don't think I'm gonna get the black 550. Though part of me kinda thinks I should on principle alone because of the price. Nothing good has ever come of my impulses so I'm gonna just sit somewhere and breathe lol. Ibanez. Friggin Ibanez. They're too good to have just one but they're too hard to get a hold of at a human price sometimes lol. I don't want 12 of the same model. Just like one of each RG model. Oh, and a DY Jem777. That would be sick!
