Product Description

The RG550DX boasts a prominent feature of the original RG: the ultra-thin Super Wizard neck— constructed of five glued, solid pieces of Maple/Walnut for absolute rock solid stability as well as extra-smooth playing. The classic Edge tremolo bridge ensures that the most extreme sonic acrobatics can be fearlessly performed and the guitar will effortlessly return to perfect tuning. The original Ibanez V7, S1 and V8 pickups offer a wide range of tones and attack when combined with the 5-way pickup selector switch. The RG550DX also features a beautiful Granadillo fretboard with a striking Sharktooth inlay.

It all started in 1987: The debut of the Ibanez RG was a milestone in rock guitar history. With its spartan look, supreme playability and versatility due to its innovative specs, the RG made a big impact and continues to evolve today. The Ibanez Genesis Collection brings back the vibe of the good old days with precise construction by Japanese craftsmanship, proving that this iconic guitar has always and will always lead the rock guitar scene.

Product Review

First off, I've played Ibanez RG5xx and higher series guitars for many years; quite literally owning HUNDREDS of them. Seriously. The old school Japanese RG550/570 models always being the holy grail to me. You just can't beat the original Edge tremolo. The neck profile and overall comfort and flexibility of these guitars is unsurpassed. When the Genesis series came out; I was very skeptical and took the chance with one of the RG570 models and was so pleased with it, I had to get one of the 550DX models. It's essentially the exact same specs as the old school models with the only tweak that's really noticable being the thicker section of the neck behind the nut where the older models would usually develop a crack. This is absolutely one of the best guitars I've bought in many years - and I buy several a year - none of which are "cheap" models. My only complaint about these is that they are only available in blue and red. A nice black or white would have been good (with the rosewood board) - I know they are available in more colors but I prefer the rosewood. If there were other colors, I'd buy those as well. :) I already bought the 570 in both black and blue. I can't get enough of these Genesis series - my old school RGs haven't been touched since.
