Re: 550 replaced 470

Very nice! Makes you wonder why the black anniversary model didn't get a maple fretboard.

Because it's a reissue, and the 1987 550BK had rosewood.

Re: 550 replaced 470

I thought about the Reissue. Didn't like the Black one with Rosewood. Would have loved a RFR but I decided to save a little cash. And this thing is in awesome cond .Virtually no fret wear. \m/ mample is clean..etc

Re: 550 replaced 470

Your JEM and RG are like polar opposites (black body with maple fretboard vs. white body with rosewood fretboard)

Very nice!

Re: 550 replaced 470

Sounds like a good deal you got there, especially with the upgraded pickups.

Way to go!
