NGD: RG550MXXRF

Yes, I guess you all know what this is

It's Road Flare Red

It's a LE Re-issue from 2007

It's made approx 500 of them in this color (1/4 of the 1987 RG550 20th-guitars were RFR, I read somewhere)

I'm completely stunned, getting an RFR 20th in this amazing totally GEM MINT condition, I never thought I'd get it and I'm as I said completely stunned, chocked, I don't have words.

I guess the feeling I have now represents the relieve of a long search for one of my dream-guitars (Wanted one since they were released in 2007) finally being over..

Though I still have other guitars on my wish-list, this RFR 20th was and always will be, for some reason, one of my favorites among these.. I totally love this guitar to pieces.. I'll keep it a case queen for the record

A great addition to my collection ^^

Pictures to come later today

Re: NGD: RG550MXXRF

Thank you, Alaskabat

Yes, it feels good, knowing that I've now got a completely MINT guitar which was one of my main guitars to get.. And it's gonna stay freakin' MINT for years to come.. It's nice finally having it ^^

Pics.. Only a case-shot and a case & body-shot as I didn't want to remove the guitar from the case where it sleeps.. The case candy is there though.. Picks, strap, tools, everything

The plastic is gone from the pickguard, but it's still on the Truss Rod cover and the plate on the backside underneath the backplate (Not sure what it's called.. but the plastic is on ^^)

Re: NGD: RG550MXXRF

I've done some inspection on this 8th miracle of the world.. The things I've noticed:

# A small mark on the pickguard on the top right.. About 1/2mm
# Missing the pink pick (When I discovered this, I was like.. Lolwut? Seriously? What where they thinking?)
# The case has got some marks from storage

But it's still *MINT*, I guess.. Except for the missing pick.. That's not good xD

Anyways, my mind is totally blown, from the second yesterday when I gave the seller the money in hand and walked away with the guitar, I've been totally.. Stunned..

I bet I had the biggest smile/ grin ever when leaving the sellers house, carrying the guitar to the car xD

Re: NGD: RG550MXXRF

I'm posting this to tell you that I'm using this guitar, as it's got these 2 imperfections and are not 100% mint.. I decided to make it a use-guitar when I first played it.. Great guitar

But it's not in a bad condition.. I'm trying to keep it in a very good condition ^^,

Oh, and my new nick is IbanezFanatic777, created a new account.. Just posting this with this account to verify it, though that's not interesting, I thought I had to
