    NGD, will I ever learn.... Rg560 Grape Ice

    to just hold on to guitars I like
    I sold my 2 550's and my 560 to pick up a couple of Charvels, but found that I really missed having them around so I spotted this 560 on the bay and scored it for a really good price. I've been lusting for a Grape Ice for a while
    so when I saw this one I decided to watch it and the price never really went up so I grabbed it.
    The neck shape on this one is killer and it's in really nice condition. I did a full set up on it last night and it shreds.
    I'm going to drop in a Gravity storm in the bridge and the 2 rail pickups I grabbed from Alan in the classifieds (cool/vintage).
    I've also got the Schaller trem arm assembly to drop in as well, but the bar on this Edge holds pretty nice as is , so I may hold off on that one for a bit.
    There was a Teal 550 on the Bay that I held back from bidding on that went
    for $390.00 on Friday night, I could kick myself for not grabbing that one too
    as it was really pretty clean and had the black head stock which I actually prefer to the matching

    I've always wondered why the 560 is so less desirable /in demand than the 550's seem to be. Is it because of the Rosewood board? or is H/S/S less desirable than H/S/H ?

    That looks identical to mine. Nice score I wondered the same thing as far a value goes people ask three times as much for a 550.
    Learn to be quick anyone can be slow

    Do you look at the toilet paper after you wipe?

    It's probably the H/S/S. It would be for me, anyway.

    I like all of the RG5x0 series guitars, but that one is last on my list for that reason.

    Nothing wrong with them at all, I think it's just a preference thing.

    Goddamn, that's purty. Nicely done.
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...
