It's finally here!
Ibanez RG550mxxdy! 20th Anniversary RG550 in Desert Yellow
You guys know the specs better then I do:
- Basswood Body
- Titanium reinforced Wizard I (II?) neck
- maple fretboard
- 24 frets
- Original Edge trem
- DR Neon strings!
First impressions: I took it out of the case, and it was 98% in tune! It's fairly resonant, and the set-up is pretty good as well. It came with straplocks but the strap was lost prior to sale. It's pretty resonant unplugged, seems to be a good cut of wood. The neck is easily the thinnest I've ever owned, but hiked up to Shred territory it's comfortable. I will be turning to Troy to learn some sweet bar tricks, and Darren's got the hook-up for the Tremol-no.
I have my J S Moore A8 pickup out of my PRS floating around, and I have a hunch this guitar will get the matching neck and single coil. I really enjoy the variations in sounds between each setting - very handy!
Video later, I'm still half asleep (it arrived at noon, I get up at 2pm).
I give you: Teddy!
(The case is a little scuffed up but whatever)
