2018 Ibanez RG550 Genesis Collection - Desert Sun Yellow

Description

This one may be pre-owned, but it's only a couple of years young and in absolutely mint condition. It's had its original tone knob replaced by the owner, as seen in the photos.

A Worthy Reissue of a Hard Rock Classic!

First built in 1987, the original Ibanez RG550 is revered by rock and metal guitarists. This Genesis Collection reissue takes its ancestor's classic design and adds a few modern touches. The original's 1-piece maple neck has been upgraded with a 5-piece laminated maple/walnut one. Its versatile HSH pickup configuration has been overhauled with modern V7 and V8 humbuckers. The RG550 features a comfortably contoured basswood body, resonating with a warm growl and enough midrange definition to cut through a dense mix. Twist, bend, and dive-bomb to your heart's content, thanks to an Edge locking tremolo. Loaded with aggressive styling (including eye-grabbing black hardware), the RG550 is a fast-playing, hard-rocking tone machine.
