Well, I may have overpaid, but I got an RG550 again....

....Needs some work. Nothing I can't handle. Maybe I should have held out for the Road Flare Red that I've been wanting (used to own one). Got it for $167 plus shipping.

It's item #7420808329 over at evilbay as I haven't gotten the guitar yet so I can't take my own pics.

Congrats. Saw that one before and was tempted to bid. Hey, if you can do the fretwork and refinish it, $167 really isn't that bad since people usually part these out and sell the Edge trem for not much less.

PS- if you're going to replace the electronics want to get rid of that green EVO, PM me ;-)

for real, right? i have had 4 different rg550s, at the most 2 at one time, and was never really happy with them. content, yes, happy, no. the rg520qs is the made me happy guitar. the rgt3120 is the made me crap myself guitar. i have always liked the rg550, but something was always just a little ordinary about them. i guess i can say that because i have a 770dx.

Re: Well, I may have overpaid, but I got an RG550 again....

For me, it's partially to get a guitar that I used to own. Granted, mine was Road Flare Red. I really like the guitar, but it was between selling that and selling my Kramer Baretta and I'd had the Baretta forever, so I simply couldn't sell that one.

I do hate the idea of having another project guitar. So far, I have to refinish/fix the following"

Jackson Kelly
Washburn N2
OLP MM1 - I'm going to put carbon fiber on the face
Squier '51 - Close to done with this one
Ibanez RG320DX - Putting a Splat Maple Veneer on this one

Wanna know? It's the colours and it's the maple board. That's exactly what it is. Plus they were very affordable.

I have two 550s, a 670dx and a 770dx. The 550s are my favourite. The dx's are almost too flash like a Jem.

When I was younger my brother bought a wine red RG550 with the maple fret board and black scratchguard. He still has it. I really should get him to sell it to me. He never plays it anymore and it's mint.
