My Mike Sherman RG550 Restoration - The GREEN Machine.

Another guitar restored by my buddy Mike Sherman. It's raining out so there's really no good light to catch just how bright this paintjob is.

Here she is today. PAF/X2N:





New life for an old dog.

Very, very nice. Looks like a combo between a DY and LNG.

Mike Sherman is the man. I'm probably be getting an 8-string built by him in the next year or so.

Amen! Excellent work....I'm just not feeling the lime green switch knob. Black would be so much better imo. Anyway, what a fine axe you have there
