I bought this original RG550 last fall from the first owner, played great but looked absolutley disgusting. Never cleaned. So I got it dirt cheap ;)
On to the pics!
I love the wear on the fretboard, won't fix that.
My Les Paul Studio has a ring of dirt and mud around it's tone. Even with new strings, I can't get it to sound either not muddy (neck pickup) or too harsh (bridge pickup). My Strat is not muddy like this at all, but it does have single coils.
I'm thinking new pickups. What are some pickups...
