Rg550

I hear such great things about them. Seems like with a little modification, they're a JEM like guitar for much cheaper. I saw one on the bay BIN for $450. It had already been upgraded and it looked amazing. After my Carvin i'm getting very soon, I want to look into a 550. Any likes? Dislikes?

Cheers.

Re: Rg550

I just put some PAF Pros and a HS-2 in my Desert Yellow RG550, and I really love it now. I play it everyday.


I also have a Blue RG550DX, with the same pickup config (all with Blue bobbins this time) and It was my #1 for a while, its kinda moved to #2 but thats only because I just got my DY fixed up.

If your talking about the blue one, thats an RG770DX, not a RG750.


But. . You knew that already, I'm sure, you just forgot.
