Re: USA Custom Radius Series
One day shipping, can't beat that.
Anyway, it has turned in to a bit of a project now.
I doubt is it is a USA custom. Back of the neck is stamped RG-550R with a Red C and Black V stamped on it. No serial on the headstock it is on the back of the neck. F155873. The body neck cavity has "Ibanez" stamped in a kinda semi-circle with a faded out curved rectangle with something stamped I can't read. Also has a bit o pink paint or so not much on the body towards the neck route.
Now for the funny stuff. At some point the dude had lost all the string blocks on the trem and had taking the saddles out and put the strings in from behind lmao on that.
Has aftermarket 5way and a push/pull tone. It will get a factory 5way installed. It could use a fretlevel and polish job but that will have to wait.
Pups are Bridge: HB2, Mid: SB1, and neck SB2.
The color is a kinda blue/green burst with what I believe is a pinkish primer as the paint job looks factory.
Just needs some TLC and some robbed parts of my old RG550 I don't play anymore.
