RG550LTD w/evos or JEM77FP 88`

I have the posibility to buy a 88` JEM77FP, but also I want to improve my RG with DiMarzio Evolutions, what do you think will be the best option in playability, sound, floyd, etc...??

Take it from the owner of two FP's (88/91)

Get the FP - not only are they lovely creatures, but they play OOOOO SOOOO well If you don't like the PAF Pro's (which I do) - just swap um out with those EVO's

If you can get a 77FP get one, you can always upgrade your RG with pickups...

hopefully you have at least a RG550 or higher with better trem, I have great tone in my converted RG570 using HS2 & Steve Special... ($120) upgrade

Not to be any rude or disrespectful, but why have 2 of the same guitars?

Look at the patterns carlos - they are actually quite different Plus one is a first year 88 and the other is a 91. There are 27 different available pattern combos and if I had enough money - I'd have 27 FP's

Think of it this way - would you rather have one lovely girfriend....or TWO

I think 2 of each style would be great... as a backup and or if its more of your favorate guitar.. the best is to have 2 of the same model that looks different... like the 77FP, GMC or PMC.

Hey, if you don't go for the FP, who's the seller? I am interested.

EDIT: Actually, that goes for everyone. If anyone knows someone selling an FP, I am searching for one. Feel free to send me a message!

Yeahh!... I think I'm going to buy it, and make my 550LTD wait a few month for the Evo's, apart from that it's a big posibility here in Argentina to get a JEM because there are quite a few.

Well some people dont like Evo's in the Basswood guitars, but I have heard good things about the Evo 2, and good choice on the 77FP...
