Re: Customization my RG550LTD

I would have made it a bad ass bee, black and yellow shred machine. I would have gotten a black pickgaurd and yellow pups. But, if you like it then that's all that matters.

Re: Customization my RG550LTD

with the purple pickups and looking at the complete guitar, the mirror pickguard does not bother me as much as it did. good job Dany.

Yeah, like that. I'm not one to be all rainbow active on a guitar. I'm not so *** pride. So yeah like that yellow one there.

Re: Customization my RG550LTD

DaniJem did you have to drill any holes to put the pickguard screws in? Or just screwed them through the body wood?

sorry friend... may be that I dont understand that you mean.
I put the screws just in the same place that they were (the original pickguard).

Oh I thought originally the guitar had no pickguard. Actually I have a RG1570 which has no pickguard and I'm planning install one to the guitar. So do I have to drill the body for the pickguard screws?

this guitar is a RG550LTD. all RG550 have pickguards. look the first page and you will see the original one.

and about your question... yes, of course. your guitar is a RG1570, so you will have to make holes on body for the screws.
but I would not put a pickguard on a RG570 or similar guitar without pickguard. you look for an used RG550 and then, you mod it!
