New Guitar(s) Day...FGM-100SB & RG-550HP

Just got these two in, the gambale courtesy of Uberthrall and the 550 from ****, both were excellent deals

Missing some plates, with a ding or two here and there, but both are excellent and hard to find...

More pics to come once they are restrung and cleaned up.

Yeah, the pickguard on the HP is wack.

I think the pickguard looks good on there. Maybe you'll get the original pups though ... Can't wait to see it cleaned up !!!

Here's his not-so-distant N.Y. cousin ...

Yep. Same old story, isn't it. All the good colours are hard to find.

Black, anyone?

Got the Gambale cleaned and setup, feels pretty much identical to my yellow one, now I just need to make or find that pesky truss rod cover.
