WTB: RG-550 Square Heel Body DY or Sanded to Wood.

As the title says. I prefer DY. The body can be any condition. The worn the better. Bodies with hard ware will be considered. I found my old 550 neck and going to get the Nut crack fixed and build a guitar around it. It was my first Ibby.

As always as cheap as possible but what I am willing to pay depends on what you have.

I know you said you checked but sometimes you can find something by looking with the wrong key words.

Here is an 80s body, not exactly a 550 but has about everything there that would work with your neck.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/203047051324

Here's a desert yellow 550
I think it's a reissued body from the 2010s and not a 80s like it's mentioning tho.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/203043483754

Here's a 91 5xx??
Heavily modded with a new maple top.
Gives you a lot of options

91 blue 570. This is already a bit up there in price and work if you an to repaint but it's in good shape.

Thanks Man! Only the last one would work with my neck. The others don't have the extra cutaway for the 24fret overhang. Have a great one!

Oh man your right. I forgot to check for the fretboard overhang.

I only looked for the square heel lol.

Actually the one with the maple top added has the overhang.

But that would be a lot of extra work to restore.

I have 2. One Rg that needs to be finished sanded down to re paint or I have a RT body that is black with trem (the RT is like a stray). Both work with the square heal.

Could post or PM me some pics and prices. I need to take my neck by the Repair Store. It's cracked worse than I thought and I want to make sure it is worth the investment.
