That Geocities link will be dead in no-time. Tiny tiny bandwidth.





So I'll host them for you.


A past **** auction I read said that it was a prototype, made only a few, and didnt decide to put them into full production. I dont know if this is BS or not. Sounds reasonable.

I believe it was a special made for one of the large retail chains...not too sure about it though.

I have several pics of this guitar on my personal files.
And one with SSV Himself pictured.
I'll be doing a search on my CDs to post them'.

These were special edition 550DX made in limited run for Musical Exchanges in Coventry and they were not available outside of UK.
Guitars were available in Yellow and Green and the cartoony snakes are so funny that these normaly sell for less than normal 550s.

Re: still need help,,RG550 serpent,,better pictures

Are those snakes pained on under the clear, or are they somehow inlaid? They are very odd looking to me, without being great or not great. Just....different.

I've seen these before, but always figured that they'd be much more... I MUST have one!
