NGD - Road Flare Red RG550

Hey all, its been a while since Ive posted here, but I finally got a mythical Craigslist steal!

I just picked up a '87 Road Flare Red RG550 for $250. The finish has no flaws, no neck or joint cracks, all it needs is a good refreshing.

Enough talk, on to the pics.









And a new family portrait. '89 Purple Neon RG570 (w/ purple mirror guard) on the L and Road Flare Red '87 RG550 on the R

Speaking of great scores, a basically mint white RG550 just went for $450. I think that auction only lasted a couple hours.

Re: NGD - Road Flare Red RG550

I'm guessing the previous owner had no idea what he had... oh well...

Beautiful guitar... reminds me of the day I brought home my '90 RG550 in Coral Myst.

Also reminds me of the '74 Camaro Z28 I bought in '87 for $300 and all it needed was paint, and a headliner... I miss that car.

Great Guitar, Congrads!

I've had my RFR550 since 1991 or 92.
I'll never sell it.

Cool 550 even tho i don't really like the bright 80-ties color. But i love the Purple Neon, i used to have a PN as my first Ibanez, but you must have put on a pickguard and changed the tone and volyme knobs?? Haven't you?
