Re: RG550DYs - a thought...
This past week I saw one... parted out. Possibly 2 reasons, somewhat interconnected:
-People who want to get rid of them think that the "80's" finish is an anachronism and don't realize that there's still plenty of cache and demand for that finish style.
-People are still convinced that they'll make more money by parting out an older RG than they would selling the whole thing. The thought might be that whomever buys it will refinish it, so if they sell the body for $100, the neck for $150, the edge trem for $75, the tuners for $30, and the electronics and pickguard for $50, they'll do better than if they sold it together, when they sometimes can go for lower. Little do they know...
