From my private collection, here's a beautiful 1990 Ibanez RG550 electric guitar in desirable LASER BLUE one of the most classy colors of the original RG line. When I bought this, it had an aftermarket pickguard with the oddest looking pickups I've ever seen. And they were horrible being nice.
I had a spare set of LIKE NEW factory Ibanez V1 S1 V2 pickups laying around (with the rare block-style lettering) that were carefully removed from a guitar with NO CUT WIRES, save for the grounding and input jack wires. The factory soldering was otherwise UNTOUCHED.Pickguard still has the plastic protective covering. When I installed them, however, I immediately learned that the pickups must have come from a LEFTY guitar because the 5-way switch works OPPOSITE. Different I know, but I just can't bring myself to de-solder the factory wiring. It does't bother me, but I'll let the new owner decide whether to keep it this way.
There are a few small blemishes here or there that are not even worth mentioning, considering it's 30 years old. The EDGE tremolo looks like it just left the factory. CLEAN maple fingerboard, NO CRACKS at the neck pockets or behind the locking nut (a small miracle on these as you know) and no noticeable fret wear. Back of the neck is as smooth as glass.Low action, straight neck, and plays and sounds like all Golden Era RG's... The tip of the headstock was missing paint so I did my best to color match it. COLOR OF GUITAR IS CONSISTENT THROUGHOUT. THE HEAD STOCK FACE WAS JUST PHOTOGRAPHED AT A DIFFERENT ANGLE, THUS THE GREEN TINT.
Built at the now-legendary Fuji-Gen factory in Japan during the GOLDEN ERA of Ibanez RG's 1987 to 1993. NOTHING since even comes close to these original, timeless beauties. There's very good reason why these particular guitars are among the most sought after instruments in the world. Even the ones for sale nowadays that look like road kill are commanding top dollar.
You simply can't top these very first Square-Heeled, ONE-PIECE Original WIZARD Neck masterpieces. These ORIGINAL EDGE TREMOLOS are considered by many to be the best Floyd Rose ever offered. From the top-of-the-line hardware, materials, fit, finish, workmanship and play-ability is astounding.
When you hold one in your hands it all becomes clear. The latest necks do NOT feel the same as these original 1-piece Wizards. The market is FLOODED with new and used reissues for a reason. And chances of finding an original Laser Blue RG550 in THIS shape are wearing thin.Trem arm is included along with the like new 90's Ibanez molded hard shell case. Listed elsewhere so don't miss out.
