    Hey all, I have a mint 1991 RG550 so there is no wear on the maple fretboard. However the frets could really use a polish and I usually use Gorgomyte cloth. Don't really need to do the whole board, just the frets. Never had another maple fretboard. Is there a protective finish on here...

  6. Comments to Ibanez
    I'd have purchased an RG550XH already if it had a maple fretboard (my favorite). I really like the concept of the guitar. As it is, with rosewood fretboard material, I'll wait for it on the used market.

    Hey Jemsite, I have a quick, easy-to-respond-to post. I was just surfing Vai's website on the tour dates page and looked at the guitar Vai was holding.
