RG550LDY - For Summer 2018 Ibanez adds the Lefty 550 in DY and RF, giving the most Japanese Lefty shred guitars ever available - The RG550 from the Genesis Collection was only available in Japan, and IMO this was or should have been a 30th Anniversary model last year along with the JEM777's. But, day late and dollar short, or year late, the dollar is right. This is the most affordable Prestige guitar series available from Ibanez. These will be like the RG550 20th Anniversary models and have the current full extension multi piece necks with plate joint instead of the extension fretboard scarf joint necks of the original. These are NOT Limited editions and are straight catalog models. And while I have been told these are not a different tier level from Prestige, missing the the fret line shown on all Prestige maple fretboard guitars on ibanez.com is the line "with Prestige fret end treatment", which is inaccurate for all maple fretboard RG Prestige and why I have said for years, these do not deserve to be labeled Prestige. This is corrected in all Silver packaged instruments I sell but there is an additional fee in the package pricing for it. Maple fretboard guitars [except the new AZ's] are clearcoated with the fretboard and stripping the clearcoat and high polish is included.
Gotoh has had a fogging problem with the Black finish on their trems for as long as I've been dealing parts, so expect some signs of it on all GC guitars.
THESE GUITARS ARE NOT CASED. IBANEZ IS INCLUDING A FAIRLY NICE POWERPAD ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT BAG IGB9124BK WITH ALL Q1 SALES. SALES - TO ME. SO I'LL HAVE THESE BAGS UNTIL THEY RUN OUT. 3 ON FIRST ORDER. THE CORRECT CURRENT CASE FOR LEFTIES IS THE M500C - $140 [WITH GUITAR ONLY]. IT WILL HAVE TO BE ORDERED, BUT THIS ADDS SHIPPING FOR THE BAG, IT WON'T FIT WITH THE CASED GUITAR.
