Re: why is the rg3550mz not popular?
On this forum, you're going to find a bias against the Edge Zero and a corresponding favoritism for the original Edge and Lo Pro.
Also, there is a *very* slight preference for older Ibanez RGs over new ones. Mostly I find that it's more based around the same Edge vs. Edge Zero argument, but I still sense a bit of a preference independent of trem unit. It's just a matter of preference, but one you can understand if you're able to compare them.
If you mean elsewhere on the web, it's because Ibanez guitars are a niche. They're often lumped into the "pointy hair metal shred" category don't get the respect they deserve.
