My latest bargain.

Picked up a 1987 RG550R (rosewood fretboard) today. It's in great condition - only a few little dings and a little of that paint ripple effect caused by the shrinking of the wood over 18 years. Popped the hood to find the stock pickups had been replaced by a Dimarzio PAF Pro and a Seymour Duncan Trembucker. The price? $260AUD (about $200 US). Sweeeeeeeeeeeet. Damn that Trembucker is a hot and loud pickup.

At a secondhand store in Chapel St, Melbourne. Same store where I got my Digitech Whammy II for $70 (about $50US).
