NGD!

New Guitar Day!

Just picked up an amzing '87 rg550 in RFR. Paid $400 for it , and she is amazing. Im excellent condition, no pocket cracks, neck cracks, dings, dents, anything. Just needs a setup and shes ready to go! Probaby the best condition late 80's rg I have seen, cant believe I got her for 400.

Awesome day, cant wait to set her up tomorrow and play her! Sorry for the bad pic, will get better ones tomorrow with some sunlight! Enjoy!

That appears to be a knee in the lower left hand corner and a shower door to the right, you didn't take this picture while sitting on the can did you?

LOL . I was waiting for someone to say this. I was sitting on the can, but not using it . Best lighting I could find happened to be there, of all places.

Yep, everything is stock except I believe the pups might not be. They dont look like stock pups that came on 550's (v7 and v8?). Im gonna take a look at them when I restring her and set her up.

As for where I got it I posted a want ad on craigslist and someone local emailed me and told me he wanted to get this off his hands. Of course I was more than happy to help him out
