    Hey guys, Sorry for a potentially stupid question, I purchased this guitar a few years back and I'm looking for some info on it. I've done some research online and found some conflicting answers. All I know is that this guitar was made in the 70's according to the original owner. Any...

    Hey all, I grabbed a sweet RG550 in black. SN dates to 1998. I came across a deal on a red 2770, decided to grab it while the grabbing was good, so I am willing to let the 550 go, mainly to defray the cost of the new guitar. Bridge is in excellent shape, guitar is well played, but no issues that...

    https://www.digimart.net/cat01/shop4764/DS04222973/ Is Ibanez reissuing(again) these models? Seriously they should just make these guitars a permanent in their lineup. Kinda like an in between between Prestige and Standard models and totally ditch the Premiums.

    I think that: 1. this was made in 1994 because the guitar carries the later V7 neck and V8 bridge pickups 2. it has a Wizard neck 3. the bridge is a Lo Pro Edge Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo 4. the neck is maple 5. the body is basswood but perhaps someone can confirm on all these points. There...

    Hi all I nearly bought this RG550 but was unsure it was correct Serial number F337548, which makes it 1993 The body had an AANJ, recessed jack socket A shiny Ibanez logo "RG Series" on the headstock LoPro Edge tremolo (I think) Was this a bleeding edge 1993 model, or just one made from...

I am not interested in the color or condition. As long as there isn't huge chips in it. I'm looking at having it converted into...

    I'd like to buy a neck for my RG project. Needs to fit a late 90's RG 550 body, so it needs to have an all access neck joint. I don't care if it has played rough as long as it's playable and the frets are OK. I live in Norway, so the seller must of course agree to ship it over the Atlantic...
