My pseudo-777VDY's here!!!!!! Pics...

Well, here she is... My latest purchase, a 1989 RG550DY that's been modded up to effect a JEM with a vine inlay, DiMarzios and a monkey grip. The neck was done by Max Cottam and an inlaid ebony board replaced the old rosewood one; it's a rather thick slab but feels fantastic to play on! The frets are absolutley huge, and the back of the neck's been refinished in a 'satin' finish which feels fantastic. The body's a little bit beaten, but looks great with no fading whatsoever. There's no way I can show the colour through photographs, it's VERY neon in real life, but the lens can't seem to pick that up too well!
Anyway, here are some pics I took for your viewing pleasure of her in action...






The colour at the lower left of this picture is more true to life:

He says it's been done by Cottam guitars, the link to their website is above in the 'vendors' section. That's a brilliant looking DY rep, the vine especially looks great!
