Re: EX Vai RG550 prototype

So a beat ass regular old 550 is worth $5k because Steve used it to test pickups?

...and the seller can't even take some of his own photos?

Good luck with that one!

I don't even care if the alien from mars signed that guitar, it's just a regular 550, no way in hell I'd buy it for 5k.

This one crops up every few years. no need for yet another topic on it so I'm closing this one down.
