Hah, dont worry about the bulbinga stripe, these old RG's were made with the really high density maple, and ive NEVER seen a warped neck on one of the old ones. I see plenty of those new ones warped though, haha, they dont even make it out of the store before the necks pretzel up.DotNetTim said:Are those pickups good? Were they made by Dimarzio in the states? If so, what type of Dimarzio's are they? What about the neck, is it a wizard or ? The only thing I don't like personally about it is that it doesn't have the bubinga neck insert, and the all access neck joint / body join, thingy! Whatever it's called.. I love that on my guitar.. I'm somewhat convinced that the Bubinga helps as my neck is as straight as it can be.. and so was the 470 I had which was a jap made guitar with the same neck as my current RG 550..
Thanks guys.;. You guys rock!
