Bought my first RG...

Okie dokie, Rob (alaskabat) told me I really needed to give the rg550's a fair shot (not a huge fan of the rg prestiges or cheap/recent models), so I bought this today.

http://musicgoround.com/detail.aspx?id=1090595

Yes yes 229 dollars for an rg550 Manager said no chips, dings or anything on the body, aftermarket pickups (we'll see about these) Comes with hardshell case and the whammy arm Minimal fretwear, well loved guitar! Im stoked!

Re: Bought my first RG...

That's what I'm looking for, something like that. Any modification plans yet?

Very nice. One of these days I need to do a tour of pawn shops in this area to see what kind of deals await.

Dude, you've got a reputation to keep up. I don't believe there aren't mods planned yet!

No point modding something I don't like lol. If I like it ill mod it up. Probably tasteful things, coil tap, phase inverter maybe... we will see definitely a paintjob....

I might have some black/white zebra DiMarzios up for sale in the next couple weeks (FRED bridge, Air Norton neck) that would be KILLER on a black guitar with white knobs. You could change the middle coil cover for a few bucks and you'd have quite a combo.
