Re: Ibanez rg550 xx or Jackson dinky Dk2s sustainiac
I own both a Jackson DKMGT, and an RG520, and have owned several prestige Ibanez guitars in the recent past and I'll say that I'll never sell my Jackson. The fret work and attention to detail on the Japanese Jacksons is second to none. I say that I've owned several Prestige guitars in the past because every one of them had some sort of significant flaw. My last two Jacksons have been immaculate, and my current DK is my main go-to guitar. I've got it loaded with a Dimarzio Evolution in the bridge and a Humbucker from Hell in the neck and it's absolutely sweet. My RG520 absolutely kills anything I've seen come out from Ibanez in the last several years, so if you can't get one from Rich, or a nice used one that's 8+ years old, I'd get the Jackson.
Of course, these days I'm playing my Les Paul an awful lot, so anything I say is suspect.
