Playing the two side-by-side just emphasizes the excuse I love to give to non-guitar players when it comes to having a good collection: Even when it comes to two identical models, they are never the same! I'm also really impressed with the clean tones you can get in positions 2 and 4, very glassy.
Cool! That's much better them being tonally almost identical. How about weight? Is one heavier than the other? I would think that the red one might be the heaviest seeing as it's a little brighter? My 20th is bright and it's a pretty heavy chunk of basswood.

My favourite 770DX is the red one, btw. Only thing that could improve it is if it was in Road Flare! Now that'd look amazing...

Re: NGD: RG770DX!!

I'll have to check out the weight differences later when I have them in front of me.

The one colour I'd love to see (which I usually dislike strangely enough) would have to be an LNG RG770DX

LNG & SK would both be awesome colors for a 770DX.

Re: NGD: RG770DX!!

nice pair 249 is there any anniversary logo's on the back plate like the 550's do?
its good to see they have included prestige cases, thats one thing the 550 could have done with, a decent case a prestige case with the 20th logo on would of been sweet, though would of been asking too much
