1991 RG550 RE-Refinish project

It's been a while guys! So, I did a project, well, butchering, not too long ago, haha! Since then, I've gotten my old RG550 DY refinished to what I now call RG550CH (Copper Hammertone)... Here is the original thread:

Since then, I've gotten the gouges out and it's like a brand new guitar All I have left is getting the decal on the headstock!

Mods:

Fresh paint job
New 5-way switch
Brand new Dimarzio Evolution Set
Upgraded Edge Pro
New input jack

Trem is rusty but, that's ok I just need a proper setup and I'm good to go! Enjoy

I like that. Classy and not too flashy.

Well, I had originally intended to sell it, but, I love these RGs (granted I like the reissues a lot more), and I wanted it to be "true" again, ya know? I wanted it to look as it should and the H-S-H combo provides more diversity as I'm exploring new avenues of producing certain tones. Besides, it looked a little silly haha! I might find an RG565 body or something similar and put some EMGs in it for a new twist. Again, thanks for the input guys
