I got a bunch of Ibys, RGs, Radius, ProLine etc. but I sleep with an RG undercovers.
I pretty love RGs (got 3 of them), they're THE standard guitars for me, the basic of the guitar.
Plus, they're much cheapier than others of the same quality.
Damn, that sleeeek neck! Ooowwww!!!

Congrats dude, and don't stop loving your RG! She'll be your trusty babe for life!

Sounds like you all have great big money pits too!:biggrin:
That makes me happy....I still have a long way to go to catch up......must go shopping!

Any you guys in bands?
If so do you play many gig's, when did you start playing and what's your biggest frustration?
Me I'm just starting to gig (one small accoustic gig to mainly very pissed mates, with what can only be described as the sound system from Hell!) but there are new doors opening as I write.
My biggest frustration is only having 24hrs per day....what a bummer! 48 would have made sooo much more sence and why can't we start with retirement and end up working at 65yrs?

I don't think I have a great money pit, but I do have really gnatty shoes, trousers that are falling apart and lack of what some people would describe as basic necessities!

Not played live for a while. But writing is coming along slowly, and soo, soo, maybe...

My biggest frustration is some things sounding dead cool one day, and totally crap the next...(among over things)

I recently picked up an RG550 DY reissue - it's my first RG in many a moon (I do have a couple Jems and a Universe) and I'm very impressed with the guitar - really well made little axe, and such a cool color :biggrin:

Congrats on your 550 and welcome!

I used to have a great big money pit. Nowadays I have a huge empty pit.
I just hope that I don't fall in one day :loco:

I still got room for more guitars, but currently I got:
Jem90Ham
Jem77FP
Uv7bk
Washburn Falcon
Takamine Acoustic
Landola 12 string acoustic (not tuned up for a year)

Doh, my list is only half of littlegreenman's

No pics of mine though. I ditched the camera plan and bought another guitar instead.
