Re: Incoming NGD x 2: '91 RG770DX RR & '79 AR-50
Well...I decided to pick up only the RG770DX RR and passed on the AR50 - only $179.99 at a local shop and I hated to see it sit there, so I let a friend know as he was looking for a decent but inexpensive new toy anyway. Too good a deal to not pass on. The Guitar Center sales guy said they screwed up in i.d.ing it and that it should have been priced out of their "Hollywood Vintage" Department. Est. in the $499.99 range so my friend got a good deal.
As to the RG770DX RR...I haven't cleaned it up or changed the strings, but I did center the nut so the strings are perfectly centered on the fretboard and then plugged it into both my JMP and Blues Classic and I really like the way it feels and plays, which was something I didn't really find w/the Laser Blue RG550 that I recently bought and soon resold. Seller even threw in a Hardshell Case and found the trem cavity cover prior to shipping. Definitely needs a cleaning and I will replace the neck and bridge pickups, but I think that I have finally found a replacement for the Franken-Swirl I have regretted letting go for some time now.
