This NGD has been a long time coming - which seems to be a trend for me now for my last two guitars! - as I originally scoped out the guitar at the end of April and bought it at the start of May. I had squirrelled it away for some time to avoid my wife and daughter's birthday, then waiting on a few replacement parts and finding the time to do the work. Before you know it, heck its October! So its an Ibanez RG550, reissued in the early 2000s. MIJ S# F0205340 Here's are pictures of the guitar before and now. It looks exactly the same! Incredible! I bought the guitar knowing it has a few issues, namely the bridge was jacked way forward with action through the roof. It was a bit of a risk that there was a larger problem hidden with the Original Edge bridge but I judged that the previous owner bought it and just never had a real idea of how to set up and work a floating bridge. I'd never played one either haha but I knew the bridge should never look like THIS! I figured it was down to set up, and maybe the tension springs being worn out. Once I got it home I discovered the claw was almost completely screwed in to the body so there wasn't much play there.
