NGD - 1991 RG750 Purple Neon

Well, new and not so new. Almost a year ago I was surfing Musicgoround and saw this listed for 399. Could see it had EMGs, but it also had the right neck, cosmo hardware and the Bensalem plate, so snatched it up without a thought. When it arrived, I couldn't believe it. The paint and neck were flawless, and the bridge was free of any pitting.

A few months ago, I finally tracked down reasonably priced ibzusa pickups for it. So I tore it down, cleaned and polished it and put the stockers back in and added a purple cliplock for fun.

While torn down I went hunting for stamps. Found the expected WALRJ-T24 on the neck and 750 instead of 550 on the body.

It gets played still, but not as much as (got a beat up 550 for that). It may end up more of a case queen.

Anyway, enough blabbering, heres some pics (excuse the quality).

Dude, you STOLE that frickin guitar!!

I never knew you could get a 750 in PN. This is the first one I've ever seen. I'm not shocked by it, but a little surprised.....VERY nice score.

thanks!

I had a PN 570 a few years ago (added a purple mirror pickguard to it), but had to sell it. Swore to myself Id get another

RGTFanatic, this is the first 750 Ive seen in PN too. Before this one I had only come across red, black and white

I'm thinking its a late 1990 that ended up with a 91 serial #. Checked the old catalogs and in 1990 you could get a 750 in PN.

From what I can find 1990 is the only year for PN as a 750 option/square heel. 91 is black, white, candy apple and 89 is black, white, violet pearl, road flare

RI_RGplayer is right, that year the purple neon was an option for 750s...

Re: NGD - 1991 RG750 Purple Neon

Cool, I've always felt that the 750 is a way under appreciated guitar. I think if I ever saw an RG750FA pop up, I wouldn't be able to resist.
