    TMD:

    It was too thin, and "D" shaped for my taste :/ unfortunately.

    And I used 0,11 Dean Markly "blue steels" on it, that wore out the frets pretty fast

    the new buyer I sold it to, got pissed off and said "you could have told me about the fret wear"-
    but I was 15 and didn't know

    I still remember the smell of the guitar and case, polished with GHS guitar polish

    good times.
    If somethings important- send a PM. I might be offline for long periods. Rock on!!!

    I stretch them by hand when I put them on, takes 10 mins or less and they are stable when I clamp them down. I mean, the techs for the "rock stars" only have a few minutes to change strings every day.

    My brother had one of the original RG550’s in DSY back in the 90’s. Bought it used, not sure what year it was. Super solid guitar and sounded decent with the Ibanez V/S/V pickups. I just could NOT get along with the wizard neck. Way too thin for me...

    ^^ yeah... I'm "the thicker the neck, the better"- never had a neck too thick for me

    (apart from my friend's home made "V" neck it was horrible.)

    That's the way I do it as well, works just nice to me.
    But to each his own of course!
