I don't know. She reminds me all the time that she gets half. And we've got most of the guns, cars, guitars, TV's and all that AFTER we got married.

Yes, she can cook. Trade for a PMC???

Can the wife cook? Definitely raises her value. Probably cheaper to keep'er

I'm sure they keep they're value if they're original. I ran across an FP in a pawnshop that had been mutilated and restored it. I probably couldn't get what they go for or even what i have in it. I guess it will be mine forever

Ha, cars are worse than guitars when it comes to custom resales! I was surprised to read about the floral pattern, though, my impression was that those are well-regarded and coveted guitars that keep their value.

I've noticed that RG550s have gone up in Australia since the reissues. Where once you could get about $500-$600 for one, I'm seeing them change hands for $1,200 or more.

I got my original 1987 for $250 four years ago.

Re: What's my 550MR worth?

lol. True. I've got a FP that's probably worth less than I paid for it. A car too! And some guns! I wonder what the wife is worth???

Dude that's the problem with half my collection. You'll never get what you put into it. You either take a loss or keep it.

Re: What's my 550MR worth?

I know the rules about selling guitars and in no way am i attempting to sell the guitar in this post. I'm simply trying to see what the value of the guitar with the case is for future reference.

That's the pain with this stuff. There's more in it than it's worth right now...

Re: What's my 550MR worth?

First of all, there are strict rules on the site about selling guitars, and if that's what you're trying to do, you should put it in the classifieds. Secondly, older RG550s in player condition have been selling for around $400-600 on the auction site, (just do a completed listings search) so there is no way you are going to get $850 for it.

good luck!

Peace

Re: What's my 550MR worth?

If I sold it though, I would at least have to make back what i've put into it with in reason and there's about under 850.00$ total into it with initial cost, wiring, pots, switch and jack with a set-up.
