Finally found that elusive RG...

...an RG550 PN that is. Been looking for one of these for bloody ages and good old 3Bay finally came good last week. In damned good nick considering the age and at a price that was pleasing to the pocket. Result

Re: Finally found that elusive RG...

Wouldn't the bound sharktooth neck make it a 750, (even better than a 550)?

Very nice guitar, either way!

Is it?

I was convinced it was a 550 but maybe I'm wrong.

The RG1550 GXWB is only in the pics because I picked that up the day before the PN in case anyone wondered

edit: Just done a quick scan of the web and it's a LTD, which explains the sharktooth and binding

Yup. Check this out (hope Rich doesn't mind me linking to his catalog scans). Unless I miss my guess, it's a 1994 550LTDPN.

The white guitar is a stock RG1550 GXWB and nothing's been done to it at all

Nope, I did buy one off you but that was on behalf of someone else.

This one's all mine

Re: Finally found that elusive RG...

Is it just me or does it look like the door can do some serious damage with those guitars positioned where they are?
