    Still can't believe this just happened.

    Alright, after reading this thread. I said to myself, I need to get one of those. I emailed my go to Ibanez dealer and asked him if he could order one for me. He got back to me, and said that he couldn't do it himself, since that is Japan market only guitar... but he did have some similar looking ones in his warehouse from a few years ago. This piqued my interest, so I asked him for the model name and pictures of them. He came back with some "awesome, exactly what I was hoping to be true" news.

    Ibanez RG550 20th Anniversary, in Road Flare Red, new old stock, never been played, still in the box!!!

    And to top it all off, he sold it to me for a price, that even I can't believe.

    As soon as it arrives, I will post some pictures.

    Which store is this, so I can call him too?
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Nice man! I'd prefer a beat up original to the reissue, but I wouldn't turn down either.

    Funny story: The Long & McQuade flagship store in Toronto had one of these in their front window for the longest time, and they had a little spotlight in front of it, pretty much 24/7.

    A few months later, they took it out of the window, and the Road Flare Red had faded to pale pink – almost white – where the spotlight hit it. Not sure how much they've knocked off the price, but it's still there, practically un-sellable with this light pink faded spot about the size of your hand right behind the bridge.
