My custom rg550

Hey new to the site, here is my latest creation. 1987 rg550 had it a couple years now and just finally got the paint work done, pics were from a cell phone so not best quality. it was airbrushed then the blue candy shot over it. it was all airbrushed and painted by a guy here locally. I installed dimarzio 500k pots, a 3 way switch, pups are dsonic/aera 58'/breed.

Other gear includes a esp/ltd ec-1000 white one with emg's, an rgt42 with dactivators, a cheap yardsale special warlock i put some left over evo's in, play thorugh a 2 channel dual rec. with jj 12ax7's and mesa 6l6's, peavey xxx cab loaded with eminence private jacks. 70 gibson jubilee deluxe, 65 gibson j-45, 89 martin d28, I wish i knew how to just put all that into a sig lol. anyway tell me what you guys think.

ps- i usually play ernie ball 10's but all my local store had in 10's was these dr's which I hate but had to have something to setup with.

Red face Re: My custom rg550

Here is mine, i found her at a local guitar shop and she was pretty beat up it was all black color. So i stripped it and did some art of my own(not the best) but i like it.I call it my new orleans guitar because my wife is from there and it has that old feel.I put aduncan jazz neck and Duncan JB bridge.This guitar rocks and it is my workhorse. I still need to change the middle pickup to something with more output because there is a big volume change with the duncans. I can go from clean jaz tones all the way up to metal with this guitar.
