Does anyone have an Emerald Green RG550DX?

I see the Laser Blue and Purple Neon ones all the time, but never the EG. Man, I've been gassing for a 550, and a pic of one in green (my favorite color) might put me over the top. Please help keep my GAS meter in the red.

I have the green one from 1991 but it has a LoPro Edge and green mirror pickguard. The color is flip-flop, can look teal or green at different angles.

Check it out here

I've got a '93 550-EG. It has a Lo Pro, AANJ, matching headstock, black guard and black dots. I've installed a TZ and an AN.

I've yet to see a '93 550-EG in any catalog. Does anyone here have a clue where these were originally available?

I don't have any pics up, but as soon as I do, I'll let you know.

I have what I think is a 550 in an almost laser green with gold mirror pick guard and black chrome hardware. It also has this interesting snake inlay that runs the length of the neck. I am trying to find details on this guitar and have had no luck. It plays great and sounds much thicker than most.

I will have some pics up in the next day or two.
