TRICKED-OUT 550 PIX !!

Thought I'd share some pix of my tricked-out 550DY...


I'm very aggressive with the trem with dive-bombs and octave drops and this guitar has never let me down- I usually play many guitars during a gig but I've played whole gigs with this one and never had an issue.

550's are great guitars.

The guitar looks great but I can see tears dripping off it, why is that ?





It's because you're making it wear that pickgaurd

Not a fan of that pickguard to be honest, but I love DY's

I would be more worried about the 2 Marshall stacks growing out of his back.

Looks cool. I like the pickguard, it psychedelicizes it.

Re: TRICKED-OUT 550 PIX !!

I only bring four 4-12" cabinets with me to gigs because I usually can't fit any more on the stage.
Some clubs we play have ceilings high enough for me to put 2 more on top- but then I can't reach the knobs on the amps without a ladder.
The band bought a large trailer to haul the gear- it's towed by a 4x4 Chevy pickup.

I'm in the process of tricking out a black 770 with all red parts, and soon I will unveil an extremely cool and rare Jackson I just got.
