I miss owning an RG

I'll admit it, as much as I have never quite found the comfort of the 540R in an RG, I miss the rip your head off tone of the RG. There is just something about the squared off body loaded with a Tone Zone that just rocks.

Might have to start looking for a older 550 or 560.

Pull out the pups/wiring and there should be no problem in slipping it in the grave with you.

Thank you Yes , I got this from one of the lads here. It's a killer guitar! I actually prefer the Ti reinforced necks on the ri's as well .

Man I love those Road Flares, I'd have one of those if maple fretboards and I got along sonically.

I have to say my 20th Ann RG550 RFR is so awesome. My modified PAF Pro that I installed yesterday is brilliant too.
