Caveat: No pics yet, but I'm planning on stopping by soon and grabbing a pic but I'll try and describe it as best I can. It's got:
- Black finish
- Black pickguard
- 3pc maple/bubinga neck
- maple f/b
- Edge trem (non lo-pro anyway)
- Green pups in the bridge and neck that look like dimarzios
- some green knobs/switch tip
Now the guy in the shop seemed to think it was a 470 or something, maybe I misheard him. He also said that they were stock ibby pickups in there, but I don't think so. There's no model number on them like there is on the middle (INF-whatever etc.) and green pickups don't seem to come standard on 550s anyway from what I've seen . Checked the serial number and it's 2001 which fits with what I've found on the ibanez wiki.
Basically the crux of it all is this: Looks in good condition, it's sexy as hell (Black/green/maple fretboard = ) and if it does have dimarzios in there then that's extra awesome, but is this a good deal?
Price is £365 ($580 but that doesn't mean too much). Anyone got experience with these 550s from that time? Obviously I need to play it for myself but I'm just looking for some outside opinions
