For sale is my year 2000, made in Japan Ibanez RG550ex, in silver sand finish.
This Fujigen built guitar is a rather rare model, only produced for 3 years. To differentiate it from the standard rg550, it has the silver sand finish with mirrored scratch plate and fretboard markers, rosewood fretboard, and Ibanez edge lo-pro trem.
This guitar is in absolutely exceptional condition, the only mark on it is a small chip in the paint on the top edge of the guitar. The neck is excellent, no noticeable wear to frets, or the fretboard. It's got the older superwizard neck profile, which is basically the original wizard neck with a bubinga stripe to help with stability band strength. It's also the older type neck with the scarf joint rather than the later 5 piece neck.
I have restrung the guitar with 9s, and replaced the stock v7, S1 and V8 pickups with Dimarzio evolution pickups, with an evo2 in this bridge position. These pickups were bought from anderton's. Fitted cost £200 !!!
All electronics work as they should, the 5 way switch does the typical jem/RG coil split, and the pickups can cover everything from clean sounds almost the way through to shred!
The guitar comes with an original Ibanez hard case.
All in all a stunning guitar to play the neck is only 17mm thick which makes for very easy riffing and chording
