NGD--RG550CA

Another guitar arrived today with the Jem--this RG-550CA. Seems like a bunch of RG-550CAs are popping up here lately, so I'll add mine to the mix.

Beautiful. Love the color. It really pops with the pickguard like my laser blue. It looks really really clean too. Did you get the original case with it?

Re: NGD--RG550CA

It's a '91 and not only came with the original case, but all of the original case candy: hang tag, warranty card, trus rod wrench, instruction book, etc. It's got a few dings, but not bad. I'm thinking of changing the pickguard to gold mirror, and also gold hardware.

Wow! Now that's rare! 550's are usually workhorse guitars so to find one with original case and all the case candy, nice find.

Of course.

I reckon a white guard would look awesome on that.

Re: NGD--RG550CA

I like the concept of using gold. The necks on those things are F'ing awesome!

By the way, isn't it time you stopped buying guitars and built a massive studio on that nice large back yard?

If I was going to be living here for a long time, there would already be a studio out there. I'm military, so I'll be retiring/moving soon. Once I get all settled--a studio is going to happen.

I considered that, but decided on gold. Hmmmmm---White still might look good. Hell, maybe I'll throw a purple mirrored one on there ;P
