Why "kinda" RG1550GX? Well, see for yourself: So yeah, it's a 2003 MIJ RG1550GX, just heavily modded, and some mods are very questionable. But this guitar plays and sounds absolutely stellar, so I can forgive some eye-candy flaws. Didn't have a chance to set it up for my needs yet, so I can't provide extended feedback. Previous owner is a great player, and he needed a guitar with fixed bridge for a jazz band. And since our local market is mostly flooded with guitars made in China and Vietnam, my Indo Ibby was the best option for a trade. Here's a list of mods: -Body paint was stripped and then dyed with something to make basswood pop. -Birdseye maple veneer top was added, along with some really cheap looking red (material) & green (paint) binding. Original owner never asked for this. -Neck is actually glued to the body now. -Pickups were swapped for some Washburns / tone pot is unwired / volume pot upgraded. -Pickups can be direct-mounted to body instead of pickguard. Original owner tried to do this mod by himself, so that's why there are holes on the back. It was re-done by luthier later. -Other various changes like pickguard/knobs/strap buttons. Also, I forgot about the trem bar when I took the pictures, but it's there, and trem works perfectly. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the trade so far.
