    One of the issues I have with old Rg's is that both E strings are ridiculously close to the edge of the fretboard (on some not all , some consistency issues were obviously going on there). I looked at a couple of 1550M necks recently and there is noticeably more room to the edge of the fretboard...

    So i've been contemplating on whether to pick up a used rg570 mij or a brand new rg1550m, within the next week or so. I know there's a difference in price between the two models, but not certain if this can be justified in their quality and playibility differences. My thought is (from reading...

    I have/had FINALLY got around to swapping pickups in my RGT220A (Swampash,natural finish)..when just today I happened upon the deal of deals. An RG1550M (Poison Pumpkin) which I've had a hankering for since I first saw it in the catalogs. The store owner said, "I wanna move it,..lets...

    I received my first Ibanez on Friday, and I could not be happier. It's the RG1550 in poisoned pumpkin. First, I would like to thank the jemsite community for the great posts. This website was very helpful and influential in my decision. Second, I would like to thank Rich at IbanezRules. I...

    My 10 year old RG560 http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/RG560 has a 3 piece neck. The wiki entry lists 1 piece but i think it is actually 3. My new RG1550M http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/RG1550M has a 5 piece neck. Does using fewer pieces of wood make a better neck?
  9. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    OK, brand new prestige RG1550m (maple fretboard) in poison pumpkin with black scratch-plate and Edge Pro trem. I bought this online from a dealer in UK, because i live Cornwall and nearest decent Ibanez dealer is a few hundred miles away. The guitar came set up, but the action was a tad high for...

    I'm looking to buy a new car so I have 2 guitars too many. I really like all 3 of them as they are actually quite different in many ways and I will be happy with any one, so I will let you decide which one I end up keeping. I'm only looking to make a little under what I paid. Prices do not...

    I thought the black was a little blah, so I put a red tortoise guard on. Now it looks like one of the Blazers. http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l152/tlhamon/000_0015-1.jpg

    Ordered a Prestige RG1550M today. I remember about 20 years ago ordering an RG570. I have no idea what the price was, maybe $500, seemed alot at the time to a 20 year old. It's kind of funny that what was at the time a mid-level guitar is now upper-middle. Same pickups (no idea if they have...

    I never owned an Ibanez other than an Artist and always wanted an RG550 but until now couldn't afford one and recently saw the Poison Pumkin RG1550M and fell in love with it. So how does it rate compared to other similar Ibanez guitars? I read that different models have different versions of...

    Just curious, how similar is the RG1550M to the RG20th. Is it just edge vs. edge pro and the difference in pickups? Is the 1550's "wizard" neck the same as the RG20th? But same otherwise? Thanks.
  15. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Has anyone got comments on the build quality of this relatively new RG1550M, compared to the RG1550 of a a few years ago? I seem to remember reading somewhere on here about poorly finished frets, just cant find the post anywhere. (looks like a nice guitar, my kind of colour) Thanks.
