I'm trying to decide between these two guitars, both available used for a similar price.
5-piece maple & walnut Wizard Prestige (58mm / 18mm / 20mm)
Edge Zero w/ ZPS3
3-piece maple Super Wizard Prestige (56mm / 17mm / 19mm)
The Z is in pristine...
Hey guys, new here. Just bought a 2003 Prestige RG2550EX. I'm loving it so far (even the IBZ pups...LOVE them) but the only "complaint" I have is that it returns ever so flat/sharp. I'm going to attribute this to the fact that the Edge Pro doesn't have locking studs because it's setup very well...
I just took an RG2550EX in a trade and was looking on the Ibanez Wiki and it says introduced in 2003.
Yet this guitar has a 2002 serial number if I'm reading it correctly (F0241255).

I am upgrading my main axe. I see 3 that interest me and I am wondering what the general consensus is. You couldn't buy the advice on my last question, so I'm putting my faith in you on this. The three that interest me are as follows:

I have an option between a RG 550 (1991) with one piece maple izard neck + lo pro edge bridge or RG 2550EX (2004) with the edge pro bridge and 3 piece super wizard neck. Both are in excellent condition. Which one would you recommend and why?
I took the Edge Pro trem out of my RG2550EX the other day (using Rich's method of keeping the strings on, of course) to tighten the nut on the arm holder, and noticed that the studs were able to move a tiny bit without the trem installed. I don't mean that the anchors are moving...
I found someone selling a RG2550ex and got some pictures of it,
but the one thing that's been making me wonder is the case it came with.
He said this is the case it came with, but all the pics I've seen of the
RG2550ex were in the j-craft case. Did Rg2550exs come with this case?
