20th RG550 Ordered

Arghh impulse buy!!! I said to myself I wouldn't buy another guitar!!

Well if anyone else is after an RG550 i found a website that does free delivery for a brand new RG550 20th for 585

http://www.playback-europe.com/reche...=RG550&x=0&y=0

I ordered the black one, they have RFR but its not in stock at the moment, again same price. I'll post pics when I get.

If your conscience is bothering you you can always send it to me.

Seriously though, congratulations. Enjoy your new baby.

Only 1987, I don't know where you got 6000. Also they only have been out since April (when they started shipping them).

Re: 20th RG550 Ordered

thanks for the comments. Good thing about these 20th's as there's only 1987 made, and if kept in perfect condition can always sell them at a profit. Though I'll be keeping it.

Was saying to a mate 'yeah but they normally sell for £800+ and only 1987 made so its win win'

he goes 'Yeah but you wont sell it!!! so even its worth £50,000 you still spent £585 on a guitar you dont need'

lol ah so true, but it'll still be nice to have
