Title: Ibanez 2007 20th anniversary RG550
Post by: bunkyloo on August 19, 2018, 10:09:26 AM
I found this anniversary model after a long search for an 87 in good shape. I have other golden era Ibanez as well but I needed this color. I picked it up for $700 usd.
 I think it was a good buy.

Hey bunkyloo, nice  :thumb-up: , need to tighten the rear springs though and get the floyd flat/parallel with the body.  The angle it's at now (like a strat bridge  :nono: ) will stuff your string break over the saddles and loose sustain (even though they lock into the "jaws of life") and also make it harder for the knife edge to return to neutral (check out how SCs got his  :thumb-up: .

Hey Rich, the EDGE on bunkyloo's RG is set up perfect.
You can see the knife edge inserts on the side. These have to be parallel to the body. The baseplate is angled.

Ahh I see, the whole thing is wedge shaped, still looks a little high to me but not as bad as I thought (comparing it to a floyd) now you point that out  :thumb-up:   Good article BTW, so these trems should be a little easier on the heal of you hand when palm muting (I'm guessing  :dunno: )

I don't notice any difference at all between the two  :dunno:  My first Floyd was the Ibby Edge, so I was already used to it I guess.

Nice guitar SC that's the one I cant find in descent shape anymore. So I will settle for this one theres a 2018 genesis edition identical I could probably get for 500 but no case.
