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"
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
