I think I'm going to go for the genesis remastered 550 on trademe.
Anyone got a molded Ibanez case for sale? :)
I'm wondering if that one is on facebook - I'm sure it is - might be able to get it cheaper
Got it for $900 at the end, so not too bad!

550's are the busines when in the right colours. I hate the look of 570s etc without pickguards and they need to be maple board. Still got a 20th anniversary in yellow that I have no use for, but it looks cool.

My RG550 has some nasty cracks, the body is also bashed up. It's had a rough life but still plays fine.Image

It's an issue with the necks on the original RG550, I think the reissues have a stronger 3 piece neck, a top mounted locking nut and a volute.
