FS - Ultra rare RG550 LEFTY neck for all you reverse headstock lovers!!

Here she is, a very rare and sought after lefty RG550 neck from 1991. Direct bolt on to any right handed square joint Ibanez to give you that awesome reverse headstock look for your next 550 project. Black headstock so it will go well with any color body, or refinish it to your own liking. Logo is still in perfect shape, and neck is straight as an arrow.

I just got done preparing the back of the neck for any type of finish/protection you want, or leave as is, its smooth as silk right now, its down to the bare maple right now, I was going to tung oil it but I will leave the finishing up to you. (it may require some detailing or ultra fine sanding but 98% of the hard work is done)

There is one small scratch next to one of the nut holes but is barely felt, most of the sanding took care of it, I cant even capture it on camera. There is 2 chips on the headstock and one tiny chip below the e in the logo. There is an extra hole on the back from one of those wrench holders, as well as a scratch next to the low E tuner hole on the back. No neck joint cracks of any kind.

The frets have average wear for its age,Its playable as it but could use a level and crown, of which there enough meat left on the jumbo frets to do so. Some discoloration on the fretboard and finish partially gone, see pics.

Also Included are the 6 tuners, Tree and Truss rod cover. Not included is the nut, nut shim, and neckplate/screws.

I'm going to price this ultra rare neck at $225 standard shipped to US. No Trades. Paypal or MO is fine. I will do International, but your paying for shipping and insurance.

Price drop down to $200 shipped to US. Considering regular right handed necks in similar condition go for $175+, this is a steal for such rarity...I'm only going to offer this for the next 48 hours then its off to you know where...
