Re: NGD w/ video: 1989 RG550 Heather Pearl
thank you! It was definitely one of those where you make sure your tetanus shot is up to date before you start cleaning it up :-)feels good to rescue a gem like this from A terrible environment, even though it was definitely left with some issues. Now that I've sealed the hell out of the neck cracks, I haven't seen any evidence of any structural issues. Just a great feeling guitar.it has a lot more character and cojones then my previous 550.
and a word to the wise, flipping the neck pickup to get the active coil closer to the neck in position for makes a huge difference in how believable that Strat tone is.
