MY new RG550

Thought I would just share my 550 I got today from a fellow jemsiter! It plays like butter! I freakin love it, everything is amazing about it...the neck is absolutly amazing,,mmmmmmaple, I'm a fan now, what can I saw...the stock pups are alright, but still way better then my 320 stock pups...everything is better! the Edge kicks ass!

Pics (sorry for the backround)









A group shoot (thought I would just stick in one of my bro's basses lol)



I'm not photographer thats for sure...The colour in real life seems more "greeny"..looks ebtter in real life imo...

How do you think some green,purple,yellow,pink etc.. pups would look..I'm gettting TZ in bridge, Red velvelt in middle and Air Norton in neck

Re: MY new RG550

Those dont look like stock pickups from here... maybe you wanna ask the seller what was in there before spending on new ones...

congrats!

Re: MY new RG550

Yea thats what I was thinking...there not V7, V8 or V1 V2...there pretty good tho..but I want some cool colours o well..switching them anyways.

the bridge gains feedback real easily...which is awsome actually lol...the middle coil just is feedback mania on dist. channel...like BBBBBBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE every time stop and same with the out of phase positions...the middle coil pup really dosent like dist. its got to go!

the neck is actually really good...

Swapping them anyways! hehe loving this guitar ! its amazing, everyone should own one.

Re: MY new RG550

Very nice Ozzdoc.

I agree with ibanezcollector, blue and white would look good.

On second thoughts, pink would go nicely with the black pickguard too!

Re: MY new RG550

get either a pearloid or tortise pickguard with some white or cream pickups. that would look sexy with the maple neck.
