NGD RG550

I found this on cl today for $300. An absolute time capsule. 1990 RG550 in laser blue.
Clean as they come. Bridge pickup was changed to a Duncan years ago by the original owner whom I bought it from today. Square heel with NO pocket cracks.

Re: NGD RG550

Unfortunately, I gotta sell. My son's birthday and vacation coming up in 3 weeks. I REALLY want to keep it but my better half disagrees. This guitar is like brand new.

Wow!! That is mint!! Great score and massive shame you have to part with it. I'd be pulling out all the stops to hang on to it. Get your thinking cap on dude!!

Re: NGD RG550

Yeah. Bummer you have to sell it. They'll probably close your classified ad, they don't like the flip without paying for vendor status.

Re: NGD RG550

If only these sorts of deals could be found in Australia. That would probably go for $700-900.

Great find.

I mean, it is worth that much considering the shape it is in. He just shouldn't have mentioned what he paid for it if he planned on flipping here.

First rule of flipping...never disclose how much you paid for anything!

It is worth what someone is willing to pay for a blue one, and $650 is a bit steep for that color.

RFR, or DY will bring rain...

Thumbs up Re: NGD RG550

That thing is nice!! I love maple necks and that blue is sweet! Congrats on the NGD, even though it sounds like it's on it's way back out.

Re: NGD RG550

Congrats on the NGD! Great score, now selling it should be more fair in the ballpark of $450-$550. At least, that's what I'd pay, since that isn't the original case, nor original bridge pup. If you had the original, then perhaps the price could sway toward your asking price. Either way, you got a great deal. Good luck on the sale and your Son's Bday/vacation..

Re: NGD RG550

Good news. Talked to my better half and after sleeping on it and doing a string change and complete set-up this morning this 550 is staying with me. It's in too good of condition to let it go and it plays like my USA Custom. I also have an original case for it that I got with my USCG12. I know everyone goes gaga for the DY and RFR but I've been looking for a blue one for a while now. I decided the better route was to get rid of my '95 RGR470 DW instead. I love that one too but the maple board on the 550 is awesome. Time to go play some more.
