No , Its a nice shade of orange. Its weird though the headstock color faded and looks a little pinkish , and in certain light the body looks red .

Sniper ,

Yeah , The guy that had it before me had some weird set up .

Neck - EMG select
Middle - ( unknown ) he claimed it was dimarzio
Bridge - Was a Dimarzio "dual sound"

I didnt like the dual sound because it didnt have enough bite for me ( too used to duncan distortion ) so Thats what I switched it out to.

I have a 1990 RG 550 that's about that same color . . . hard to tell for sure as scanned/digital pictures can often alter the color a bit.

In the catalog from 1990 the color says Coral Mist. It's sort of an orange-ish-red/pink.

The headstock on mine has also faded to look more pink than orange.

I've never seen another one the same color, until now. :-)

Nice guitar.

I've got a 1989 RG550. It looks boring as hell, but sounds good and plays well.



I call the finish on that "Spinal Tap Black" ..I mean, how much more black can it be?

If the picture doesn't show up, don't blame me. Blame my ISP (Sonera) for breaking their webserver EVERY OTHER GODDAMN DAY!

yep. i've got a '90 550 about the same color. mine is nowhere near orange though. more of a dark pink. guy i bought it from swears the color is champagne mist, and i just love it. hence the name...
