The coolest 550 ever--that's what it is.

Listed for $200. "Road worn but not abused." Can't hardly be right, must be a spam operation...

Set up an appointment for Monday to see it. If it's not broken I will buy and post better pics. Thanks for the ID, it helped.

Well this thing played nice, but it was pretty beat up. Crack in pocket could have just been paint... cracks in pickguard under the screws, and plenty of big dings all over... I liked it but it looked beat up on. He said he would take $175, but I still passed. Case was all beat up too.

The trem and pickups alone are almost worth $175...

Hmm. Okay. So the serial number started with a 31. I looked closely, can that be a 1991? If so what would the trem be?

F31XXXX would be a 1993. The trem is a LoPro Edge

Okay thanks. Just texted him an offer for $150... we'll see. Pups were V8 and V7 I think...

Yeah definitely take it if he accepts that offer. Personally, I would have bought it for $200 in a second. Especially if it played well like you said.

But then again a lot of people think I'm crazy

Okay, he just said yes to $155. I'll get it in an hour, post some pics here shortly after if possible... man the thing is just beat up, and that scared me. But I think at $155 you can't beat it. Thanks for the support!

No problem ... If you later regret it you can always ship it to me for $200 and break even
