Couldnīt resist - Severe case of GAS today :)

Hi everybody!

This morning, I went to get some new strings and a flightcase for my PGM900TR.

Unfortunately, I fell in love with the RG550MXX-DY.

I first drove back home, but I could resist no longer than five hours... after that time I called them for a quote and then immediately picked up the guitar
Pictures donīt do justice to the guitarīs neon look... but youīve probably seen enough anyway.

Soooo now itīs PGM500CA, PGM900TR, JEM90HAM and RG550MXX-DY for me. I guess the PGM900 will have to go... It just does not seem right. The headstock is not pointy enough!

The RG550 is lovely - pure 80s! Now I wonder if I should also try to get the Roadflare Red one...

The PGM900 is cool. Keep it man, get rid of the JEM. I know you won't but I would.

Buy the Road Flare, it kills.

Re: Couldnīt resist - Severe case of GAS today :)

Thanks everybody...

Sorry I didnīt reply, Iīve been away for a few days. Vacation. Couldnīt stand it, my girlfriend wanted attention and did not allow me to bring any guitars either

Seems like not everybody likes neon - responses among my friends to the RG are very mixed! I knew that if you want to meet people with a sense for style, you have to visit Jemsite!

Dee: Yeah, I would love to also get the Road Flare one, but they seem to be sold out over here. might try to get one in Japan..
Want to buy a PGM900? Would also consider trade if you got something with a slightly more pointy headstock!

Your friends are not doing you right by that. Never contact them again. That should solve the problem.

I donīt know.

I already dumped most of them when they said similar things about the PGM500īs painted F-holes.

Now only those who regularly treat me to a drink are left. I guess you have to make a compromise sometimes.
