Xmas memories.

Merry Xmas guys & gals. I hope you all have a happy Ibanez christmas.

Every Xmas i like to plug the old 550 in for a round of reminiscing.

It arrived late in the afternoon of Xmas eve, 22yrs ago ........ with no strings.

I had to wait until after boxing day when the music store opened & i could buy some.

It was about then i realised that i knew nothing of floating trems. Back to the music store.

After quoting me 2 weeks to fit the strings, i begged & pleaded for them to do it quicker. They had it ready for new years eve.

I played that thing all thru the night! I haven't put it down since. Other axes come & go but this one still remains my favourite.

Merry Xmas 550.

Re: Xmas memories.

That's an awesome story.

All of my Ibbys were bought during the off season so they get love in other ways

I love all of my guitars equally. They all have something good about them that makes me happy to have them

Re: Xmas memories.

glad to see another Rg550 staying with its original owner.
I've had mine (exactly like yours, black with maple neck) since 1990.
Although now it looks like this:

Re: Xmas memories.

I've had my purple 550 for the same amount of time. Although I am about to repaint it some kind of bright sparkle color since the clearcoat is crap.
