Merry Christmas to me

Just got this from the Jemsite classifieds.......thanks Chris.
A really nice piece. Don't know what the humbuckers are,
aside from obviously being Dimarzios,but they sound great.
In case you missed the ad,this one is a 1991 RG-550DXEG.

My camera doesn't really do the finish justice. It's actually much
more vibrant than what these pics show.

they didn't...a hot axe like that can easily melt faces away, so snow doesn't stand a chance

cheers

The color does change quite a bit in different types of light. It looks
different indoors. The color really comes alive in the sunlight. As for
the Christmas tree pic,the kiddies are off from school this week and
are bouncing all over the house. I think I'll keep her nice and safe
downstairs in my studio......lol!!

oh man... definitely keep that thing safe... I saw the ad and saw the pic from the back...
does the finish have a "kinda metallic" look? I'm trying to imagine if your 550DX has a similar finish like a neon purple and/or laser blue. the PN I have looks like it has a blue base and a red overlay. Maybe that green has a similar overlay of some kind?
... I barely noticed the board was white dots!

It is sorta metallic in the sunlight....not so much indoors though.
Also,the fret dots aren't white,they're the same shade of green.

Re: Merry Christmas to me

Whims as in whimsical? The pickguard is indeed mirrored.....with a yellowish
green tint.
