NGD, rg550

Hey all, just joined.
Well I bought a prestige last month, and ever since then Ive been wanting an early rg550. Finding one is not too easy though, I saw a desert yellow one go for 750 on **** last week quickly. So I decided I was gonna sell one of my zakk wylde epi's, I only really play the buzzsaw cause it has the active emg's in it and the bullseye doesnt, so it doesnt get played too much. So I thought I had mine sold friday night , but the dickhead never showed.
So sat morning, I posted an add on cl that said I was looking for an early rg 550. Within 3 hours a guy messages me back. He bought one 19 years ago new and has been sitting in a closet for a while now. Bought from a music store here thats still in buisiness. So I offered my bullseye for it and he jumped on it. This thing is in great shape for how old it is. Has one nick in it, a lil belt rash on the backplate. It has a buzz on one of the pick ups, so Im dropping it off today hopefully to get that fixed. Im not 100% sure what this color is called, but I havent seen too many. Action is low, strings were real old. Im gonna throw some evos in it here soon, though about a different pick guard, but I think im gonna leave it black. Came with the original case too.




With the rest of the ibby family.

Re: NGD, rg550

Thanks everyone, I played the 2550z and the 550 yesterday switching between the 2, big difference. The maple neck sounds so much brighter than the 2550. I actually like playing the 550 a bit better. It just needs some new pick ups.
