Re: NGD!!! 98 RG550 in DY!!
Thought I would update on this guitar after putting some good time into her playing.
It is awesome and either my tones have changed or my ears have changed because I am absolutely loving the tones from the maple board. Aggressive but not overly trebly and that is with the stock V7,V8 pickups.
Thought about throwing the Air Norton I have into her this weekend and had thought about putting a Screamin Demon in when money allows but now I'm not sure about the Demon. May look into the magnet swap instead since I have never tried it or heard the results.
The previous owner had it tuned Eflat and had 10's on it. Had to make some adjustments, have not decided if I want my tech to set it up or not. It is incredibly easy to play.
Love having something a bit more aggressive than the Herc.
