Well it's my birthday today, and i got myself a really nice RG1550FM, it's a spot production model which i think is pretty rare. It is THE most amazing guitar i've ever played. I feel so lucky to get it. Here's the best pic of it

congrats! nice looks and overall nice playing afaik, yet don't understand why the pickups hadn't been changed for this "limited production model"...

do the specs differ from the rg1550 except for the flamed maple top and the gold hardware?

I think the specs were exactly the same apart from the hardware colour and body colour as you said. It was a Japanese Spot Production model. MachineHead music are still selling them for £585.

Not any more mate, i bought the last one :-D

This model has a mahogany body and flamed maple top. Where as the standard production models use basswood.

Beautiful - throw some white pickups or white pickups and a white pickguard on that, and it's my kind of RG. :)

i think they should have gone with directmounted pickups not with the pickguardmounted ones! this way you loose alot of this precious figured wood

Are you in the UK?

They look like the pics I've been drooling over on the machinehead website

Congratz, we need more RG's with maple fret boards
