Scored a RG550 cheaper than you americans!

I love it when the misinformed sell on ****

So i decide to search **** (australia) for RG550's knowing full well of all the current RG's for sale and none of them being anything worth considering. Up comes new item that did not get sent to my Saved Search this morning because it was listed 15 minutes before i decided to search.

What pops up? A black 91 550 with case starting at AU$150 with a buy it now for $200. Guess what I clicked?

Shall be trekking out to pick it up this fri and will let you know how it is! I'm sure i'm getting what I paid for though. the neck looks **** as, wouldn't be surprised if there's a crack. oh well.. $200 with a case!


checkout those first couple of frets =| any solutions?

i'll have to see when the guitar comes. i'm not expecting too much... look at the first pic to see what i mean!

i'll take plenty more pics of it when it comes. i've got big plans for it already too. i've been too scared to touch my other rg550 so this will definetly be the project guitar!

I recently bought the EXACT same guitar, only in much better shape and much more expensive. It plays great.
