I certainly would mind owning one of the new 1xxv's, but I wouldn't give up ANY of my old school RG's for one.

Give it time. There will be plenty of 70Vs in that price range eventually.

I feel you. I haven't even picked up one of the RG1xxv, but they seem quite expensive and the old RG550 5xx is a bargin for such good guitars.

Re: What's up with this RG550 reissue?

Thanks for the info guys, and thanks TAorama for the link to that other auction. That's the only other pics I've seen of that glowing yellow of an RG550 reissue. I did a search for "reissue" here on Jemsite and found two threads about the RG550 reissue but their picture links were long gone.

I was just referring to the auction 160614256899 I mentioned above. Some really good pics of the AANJ DY for ya (sold, of course).

Here's a few:
