A great guitar
TskC, 03.12.2020
Im a fairly new to guitarplaying and don't belong to the category that remembers this guitar from the 80's but since it had gotten so many good reviews I went ahead and bought one. The guitar is great but I also have a Ibanez RGRT421-WK and can't help but compare them alittle bit since they are both from ibanez and in the same rg family.

It's a 500€ price diffrence but the fretwork and setup when it was shipped to me was MUCH better on the Rgrt421 then on this RG550. I had to adjust the trussrod and string hight immediately on the 550 and the frets can be alittle bit sharp at times. I live in Finland so don't know if it is the climate that have caused this on the 550 but anyway worth to mention.

Pros on the 550 is the sound it's really good and the maple neck is amazing if it wasen't for does anying frets sometimes... might have to file them down sometime..

Also Ibanez had really nice instructions on how to handel the cardboard box but then thomann takes the ibanez box and puts it in another cardboard box with no instructions whatsoever.

Great guitar but not without it's small problems

Well , I own this guitar 3 months now and the experience playing with her so far is just amazing. In my opinion one of the best under 1000$ stratocasters. Sounds great and so easy to play with.

Stunning, smooth, absolutely amazing
Rakuin, 06.05.2020
I am completely astonished by the quality of this guitar. I've been watching video after video about this guitar, both the looks and the sound made fall in love with it. I decided to give it a try and bought it.. it's beautiful. The finish is flawless and looks even brighter in person, the neck is unbelievably smooth, perfect fretwork, the bridge can sustain millions of divebombs without going out of tune, the pickups are just amazing and super versatile like no other. It's easily the best guitar ever in my opinion, you can play slow blues or go absolutely crazy with shredding and it will ALWAYS feel right. No matter what you play, this guitar is for you. 10/10

Virkelig lækker super strat!
Ectronic, 30.11.2019
Bestilte denne klassiker som et suplement til min Carvel San Dimas Pro Mod. Her får du en lækker 80'er spade med spilbarheden er i top. Halsen er utrolig lækker at spille på. Japansk kvalitet til en billig pris. Kan helt klart anbefale denne guitar.
