RG550

Dear Ibanez,

Im wondering what are the Chances of a Full Production Re-issue of the RG550? I Missed out on the the 20th anniversary limited run, and i cant find them anywhere. I was really hoping to be able to purchase this guitar, and i think a lot of people would like to see this model in production.

Thanks

Yeah, I've seen loads of them for sale, mostly in mint condition. Keep your eyes open and you'll find one.

Re: RG550

Actually it would be 1020 better than a 550 I guess that's why they called the new ones RG20th's so people wouldn't forget the extra 20!!!!

Re: RG550

Best finish Ibanez have produced, in my opinion!

No way the 1570 is better than the 550, Elcid. Come on now!

Re: RG550

I disagree, Loch Ness Green is the best finish Ibanez ever made. Just as long as you don't put pruple pickups in it and make it a Barney the Talking Dinosaur guitar.

I have to disagree with you on that. Black is the best finish..... I just wish Ibanez would produce some more

Well now that you mention it, I think you're right. I'm going to paint my guitar black now just so I can be unique.

Re: RG550

Thanks Once I've done, I'll do all of my other guitars, but in a different shade of black as having the one shade would be just boring
