Some years ago, to be exact in May 2011, I bought a ’82 Blazer Model 550FR (Fire Red), which I still call “The better Strat”.
I was really happy with it – and still I am. But when I found out, that there is also a sister model BL550RB in an amazing kind of blue, I started looking for one of those axes.
Ok, from a player’s point of view, it doesn’t matter if your guitar is black or red or whatever.
But we’re not only players
And since decades – don’t know why – I REALLY WANTED A BLUE GUITAR, which is my favorite color as you can guess 😉
So here it is! 🙂
Bought it last week from a seller located in Berlin for a decent price.
Yesterday it arrived well packed and without damage.
The beauty is an April ’81 model in good condition with OHSC, some dings but everything genuine Ibanez, no mods etc.
Applied some TLC to the Blue Beauty and now she’s back in perfect state. One of the pictures shows my BL550 Twins, really love to play them.

That blue one is beautiful! I’ve got a red one which is missing a tremolo arm. Do you know the diameter of the arm for the Blazer?

thank you 🙂
The trem arm has a 6mm metric screw thread. Mine was missing too, when I got the guitar.
I bought this one on eBay:
