The RG 500 series Photo Thread!

I think it would be a really cool idea to have a thread just dedicated to the RG550 like the customized RG sticky up top.. It seems like a bulk of threads revolve another the 550, so I figured it would be cool to have a picture thread!

Edit:Now it is the 500 thread as request :] If a mod could change thread titled, it would be appreciated!

Re: The RG550 Photo Thread!

What about 570's? could they squeeze a bit to fit in here too?
If so they should change the thread name to "The RG550 Photo Thread,RG570's are welcome" or something

We could just do the whole 500 series if everyone likes I think that it would be cool because everyone is always asking about pre prestige/jcraft Japan built RG's and this could be a special spot for them!lol

no, because 550's are iconic. If you allow 570's, then you get 470's and 770's flooding the gates, and from there the flood gates are opened

that said I think a "500" series thread would be better

Re: The RG550 Photo Thread!

Seriously, there are a ton of NGD threads--do we need a "Post your RG550s" thread? That's what the search feature is for...

I say yes as it would condense everything down, and plus there is still no thread dedicated to these guitar even when they are probably the most popular rg on this forum...and yes I've used the search feature on this site probably everyday..

Re: The RG 500 series Photo Thread!

Here is the 91 Lazer Blue that I've owned her since 93. Originally had a gold mirror pickguard that I recently replaced with a Pickguard Paradise black mirror. Put a Breed in the bridge and will be replacing the neck and middle soon. I also completely rewired everything with new switch and pots and overkill shielded with copper tape. I've always had a hum problem so I am no longer taking any chances, haha.
