I bought this with the idea of using it as a base for a project I had in mind. But more & more RG5xx's are being used for that purpose and apart from dings on the body, structurally it's sweet. There's no neck joint cracks & no splits where the nut is either. So it seems a waste to tear it apart and use it just for parts. It's a players condition shredder that deserves to be played. So I thought I'd throw this up here for the UK guys, see if anyone wants a cheap Japanese RG. You all know how good these RG550's are and how much better they are than newer Indonesian made versions. This is a 2000 model, AANJ. It does have dings around the body but I've seen much worse on these before. They're built like tanks anyway. The neck is super thin and great. It's missing the backplate and the nut pads & bolts. The Edge bridge is all good, just some light pitting. So there you have it, a real players RG550.
I'm asking £250. No hardcase included but I will pack it well.

Noooo. If you'd have put this up 2 days ago I'd have bought it. I was looking for a 550 for ages but couldn't find one so ended up getting a 570. If I can flip the 570 then ill definitely pick this up off you.
