My small (but unique) RG collection

Hey guys, just thought I would show off my RG's.



We have an 87' RG 550, an RG 517 (with a mirror pickguard), and a 90' or 91' RG550DX. They all have Dimarzios.

What do yah think ?!

Sexy! I think I actually like the 517 the most. I like sparkly guitars.

Re: My small (but unique) RG collection

I almost bought a silver sparkle 517 back in '96. Guitar Center was selling it for $330 brand new. I actually had my money ready to go when I realized they were letting a new USRG30 go for $500. Tough choice!

Thanks! But it's actually a DUN DUN DUN... Galveston! I know I know... Crap guitars right? Mostly true, but this one is weird. It was apparently a one off for one of the Galveston luthiers. Built way better than anything else from them. Solid mahogany body, 5 piece maple/bubinga neck, ebony fretboard, Grover tuners and coil tapping with DiMarzios. It feels like a shredders Les Paul. Best way to describe it. But it does sort of resemble a Pacifica! Blah blah blah... I won't yap anymore in OP's thread.

Re: My small (but unique) RG collection

Thanks for the props guys . The 517 definitely has the best neck, but my fav overall is the 550DX.
