ALMOST NGD - '93 RG550 DXPN

Okay, everyone that has looked at my threads is probably sick of this, but I'm finally done... some before and after pics, nothing too spectacular. The best part of this guitar is that I got it for $155 (of course pickups, pick guard and electronics were more than that)... anyway, here it is, before and after:

Re: ALMOST NGD - '93 RG550 DXPN

And by the way, am I understanding things correctly when I see that this site allows me almost no pics, small size, and hell of a time attaching??? I seriously could only attach three TINY pics... someone tell me if I am crazy!

Anyway, bridge is X2N and neck is FRED, two volume knobs, super switch. Crazy!

Very nice Dexter. The H-H pickguard looks almost original.

Your having problems with your pics because they're hosted on Jemsite. Host them on a site like imageshack then paste them in this format

Re: ALMOST NGD - '93 RG550 DXPN

I know. The guy was asking $200, and at that time I didn't know how nice these guitars were. I thought it was pretty beat, which it does have some good chunks missing... nothing huge though. Anyway I was very hesitant, offered $175, and then still talked myself out of it. Finally I went back to my office, read some more about them, called him back and offered $150. He said yes, and even let me pay with my credit card (hence the extra $5!). That was two or three years ago, and I haven't seen one for sale on CL for less than $500 since...

Looks very nice, especially loving the maple board against the purple.

Re: ALMOST NGD - '93 RG550 DXPN

Thanks - it plays soooo smoothly. I can't believe I found such a nice guitar the way I did - but I owe it to this site and all the nice members here - they convinced me that I should get it. Not to mention the help with where to find the pick guard, which pickups, switches, etc...

Great score. Certainly one of the coolest
looking RG550's that were produced.

Yeah I really enjoy it for the way it plays, but the colors - what can you say?! Definitely has personality.
