N(U)GD: RG750VP

Finally getting off my lazy butt to do this thread. I snagged this off Yahoo Japan Auctions last week and it's in GREAT condition for it's age. Has the usual neck pocket crack (purely cosmetic) but everything else is in tip top shape. Couple dings, as you'd expect with a 30 year old guitar, but the kicker is that the clear coat hasn't yellow much, if at all. For anyone who knows anything about the Violet Pearl color, this is the one thing that is absolutely terrible about the color. When it yellows, it basically turns the guitar into a metallic grey color and it loses any of the light blue in it. Mine still has a lot of the blue left, as you can see in the pics (better links added)

Me too, and the fact I nailed this sucker for only 48000 yen is probably the biggest steal of my life. Something in THIS good shape would go for easily 700 USD.

After the V220, I got an RGR580DW, 2000 model with MIJ Wiz II back in January. Also, my Carvins are proper guitars, just as much as my Ibanezes.

I was surprised at how much I like that color. The fact that 750s, for whatever reason, are so rare over here, makes it even more special.
