Re: NGD - 87 RG550 DY

What were the best years for these? I'm guessing anything from 87' to 93' was good? Or were there certain years that did better than others?

In any case, that thing is in amazing condition for an 87'.

Re: NGD - 87 RG550 DY

Sweet. Gotta love DY. A friend of mine back in the day bought one when he switched from bass to lead guitar in his band. He worked at a music store and got it at a really good price (this was NEW, mind you). I ran sound for his band when mine wasn't playing, and I always thought "DAMN that's a bright guitar!" when I was watching him play. That was one of the reasons I bought the RG20thDY, because I always thought that color was so cool. Then I sold it because I'm an idiot. But, I digress... Anyway, congrats on the lovely axe!
