RG550 need help with colors

Hey, I found a sweet black RG550 on the bay, and I need to know some colors schemes before I get it, not knowing what it will look like with different colors. So im looking for a pic with a black rg550, maple fingerboard, and WHITE pickguard. I tried using that guitar building site, and it gave me a better picture as to what it would look like but it isnt the same as a real pic. Sorry, I had to post such a lame thread, but i need to see what this looks like before I bid. Hopefully you guys can help me, and post a pic of this sorta looking RG550, if you can. Thanks!

Re: RG550 need help with colors

Dude, do you need three threads about this guitar and two about how it will look with a white pickguard? It's a $10 part, bid on it, throw the pickguard on and if it doesnt look right change it back. It's not that big of a deal

Desert yellow and Laser blue for sure. I love how the reissues dont include the blue.

The 1987 RG550 line-up didn't feature blue. It was black, white desert yellow, road flare. That's why there is no blue for the 20th Anniversary RG. It's a reissue.
