As some of you might or might now know I am a huge fan of ibanez guitars, especially old ones.
I already has my Rg550LTD from 1997 and I liked it a lot but when I saw that someone was looking to trade
a white rg550 from 1987 ! with my pewter color rg550 I didn't need to think long.

Thoough I get the guitar set up and stuff and will get it on saturday , I do want to share the photo biggrin.gif

here it is :


It has the maple neck I have been looking for for a long time, and will probably replace the body with the neon green/yellow
one I have that was for the old rg project ( see the project at my signature )

It also has the standard v7,v8,s2 pickups that I also had in my old one , I think about replacing them with dimarzio's when
I have saved up some money and of course colourfull pickup covers, and tone/volume knobs

Shocking Yellow? biggrin.gif The series of which my JEM belongs to, has a model with a color resembling this one very very much smile.gif

Mine is called 777SK - Shocking pink .. so I thought maybe this one would include 'shocking' too tongue.gif

Haha yes I like those colors a lot, though, this one is homepainted I guess, If there is a lot of sunlight it shines
green instead of yellow, I can't seem to capture the color good with my camera, but I like it biggrin.gif
