Finally found an 87 550 RFR

Happy to have finally found a RFR for a good price in good shape. Just have to pop some 87 V1 V2's back in it which I already have. This is the only pic I have worth posting atm, as it still has to get shipped to me. As a small bonus its signed by Paul Gilbert on the back.

Congrads!
RFR is a cool color!
I've Loved mine since 1991.

Have Fun!

Let me know what the Pink Dimarzio is when you get it.

Thanks, I was told it was an evo pulled from a Jem, but obviously I will have to pull it to be sure.

If it is pulled from a Jem, it is most probably a PAF Pro... Don't remember pink evos on a stock Jem...

Re: Finally found an 87 550 RFR

Came in today and I am more than pleased. Its already half apart right now so no pics till I get it cleaned up. But the best news to me is that there is no fading, I pulled the pick guard and there is no color variance. Trem has no wear or pitting. There are a couple of dinks on the back but nothing major. Just needs a fretboard cleaning.

It did end up being a paf pro, no dp number, but measured out 8.49 ohms and it had the threaded pole pieces coming out of the back plate. The bridge pickup looks to be an early early bill lawrence 500l or 500xl in cream so thats pretty rare itself.

As another bonus the guitar came in an early light pink lined Jem case. I need to fix the handle and there are some black marks on the pink lining I have a feeling will be super tough to get out, but its in fairly good shape other than that.
