hey guys .. i needed to change my guitar man ... my ibanez GSA 60 was getting old and it was pretty beat up ... and it could handle john petrucci , yngwie malmsteen and stevie vai songs .... so one day ... i snapped . sold the guitar online and went to look for one ..... soon it was down to 3 models , a RG 550 EX , 570 EX and 620 EX ( john petrucci's signature model ) ... they were all the same price @ $1400 Singapore dollars from a shop called sweelee ... there was a 20 % off .. so i decided to buy the RG 550 EX .. @ $1160 .. with a hardcase

the RG 550 EX , 570 EX and 620 EX are basically the same .. just design diferrences .. naturally ... the RG 550 EX silver sand thrashed both of them looks wise ...the super wizard neck allows me to SHRED MIRACULOUSLY FAST ...... and its tok quality construction sure can hell take a beating ... then the low pro edge bridge rocks ! i have hit the whammy bar @ least 14 times so far and this baby din go OUT OF TUNE @ ALL .the pickups , v7 , s1 , v8 .. they ROCK !! i guess i'll be changing them to a dimarzio evolution soon ... i mean .. i love this guitar .. it's got chilling good looks and all the best features .. just modifying the pickups from good to BEST would make it the perfect guitar .

NOTHIN ! except the pickups being only good .. not best ... its abit pricey to me too though ..

ROCK SOLID ! BETTER THEN FENDER STRATOCASTER TO ME !!!!!!!!!

THIS ROCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its value for money ... and thrashes the competition . if u wan a best looking guitar ... with best features ..... its gotta be the RG 550ex :)
