    NGD: 80's RG550

    Hey dudes,

    Bought this from a friend and absolutely loving it. Its serial starts with 9, which I believe makes it an '89. It's been recently refretted with Dunlop 6000s, and was stripped/oiled. I put a Rebel Yell bridge/VHII neck in there as I had them lying around, but will be getting hold of some pickups specifically for it when I head down to the BKP workshop in mid-July (probably a Holy Diver/VHII set or even calibrated VHIIs). This thing plays like a demon and sounds absolutely badass - I expected it to be way brighter than it is!

    I think I need an RG565 next

    Badass, but a 550 without that neon nuclear glow
