Re: I'm sick!!

Just a thought, but have you considered buying another RG550 and selling the one you have? I'm not sure how often they come up for sale in Australia, but I see RFR's fairly routinely in the States.

Re: I'm sick!!

I don't think I'd see many RFRs here, and the used prices are often atrocious. That's the problem.

Re: I'm sick!!

selling one there and buying one here (+shipping) sounds like a little profit....... nothing wrong with that!!

Although selling one there and enjoying a nice vacation has it benefits as well!!!!!

Re: I'm sick!!

Yeah. It's a tough one. The neck is absolutely amazing. I'd pull it apart and get a different body if it were not a special anniversary model. That's why I'm so reluctant to sell. I'd better find the right pickup for the guitar quick!

LOL..... frustrating when the "perfect guitar" doesn't sound like what you want, isn't it??

Re: I'm sick!!

Tell me about it. It plays so nicely. I just need the tone now.

How are you going with the Gravity Storms? Warming up to them?

Re: I'm sick!!

Consider them a learning tool then. I remember doing that with Jazz IIIs when I first tried them out.

Re: I'm sick!!

I'm a recent convert to Red Bear picks...definitely recommended. The material they use really helps bring some edge to the tone. Plus, they have the Jazz IIIs as well.

Re: I'm sick!!

+1 on the Red Bear picks. Got a Classic II Heavy with a bevel that is awesome. The tone is a bit different, a lighter attack brings out a clearer sound, too hard and it has a pluckiness to it.
