Looking for an idea on the price of my RG550

I'm not positive where this thread belongs, so if you feel it doesn't belong here please relocate it to the correct section. Thanks.

I bought an Ibanez RG550 two years ago only to have it hang on my wall for two years. I unfortunately never play it, and it should go to someone who will play it.
With that being said, I don't have any idea how much I should be looking to sell this for. So if anyone can help in pricing this then it would be greatly appreciated.

Details are as follows; Fair amount of fret board wear, neck pickup replaced with a DiMarzio Air Norton,Bridge pickup replaced with a Seymour Duncan Invader, original middle pickup, small crack from locking nut(see pictures), 2 chips in Body(see pictures), Professionally set up, Serial number says 1987.

The color was debated and I believe it is Road Flare Red with a black headstock. Some folks on this site said they were completely random as far as the matching headstocks go. Some said they were and some said they weren't.

If anyone has any questions regarding this feel free to ask. This should go to someone who will play it and I unfortunately will not.
Thank you for any help.
