Just got this one in today. I traded my 550DXEG to the guy who had it before. I loved that one,but the 550DY and Streetwise US custom kinda pushed it to the back of the line. I got this beautiful FIRST YEAR Vandenburg, a brand new in the box green Dimarzio EVO and cash for it.

You know.....when did this deal I thought that this might very well end up being a flipper. But now I'm not so sure. It plays great and while I find the single coil in the neck to be a bit anemic,the bridge pup just flatout roars!!

Yeah,I'm definitely leaning that way Dave. This one's nice,but wait'll you guys see the one I got today......a DY RG-565 Prototype!! Only about 400 or so ever made. Between that,the Vandy,and the RBM-10 I'm getting from Cygnus,it's been a pretty active week in Gasland!!

I still haven't drawn up that body yet.
I forgot all about it until last night.
But, I won't be home until Tuesday night.
I'll get it sometime.

Yeah.....guilty as charged .....lol!!


I suppose it'll come as no surprise that the Vandy's on the bay right now. I'm beginning to think I gotta find a 12 step program for GAS!!

WOW...
That Vandy is indeed incredible.
Reminds me of the Rand guitars...

Did someone mention the RB?
I did a tracing of the body.
I wonder if I could draw it into Autocad for an accurate template?
Hmmm.

Little update:

Anatomy of this deal.

Bought the RG-550DXEG in December for $450 shipped.

Traded it back to the original owner for the Vandy,$160,and a new Dimarzio Green EVO in sealed box

This morning the Vandy got snatched up for $675 plus $45 shipping on the Bay.....to a guy in the US.......thank God for that too,as I've been distibuting guitars to every corner of the globe over the last few months through Ebay. I would of put the Vandy up here,but I knew I'd get some good money out of it....I really didn't wanna gouge any of my friends here,so the Bay was the logical choice. Had it on Harmony Central too,with alot of interest/offers.

Hmmm.

The tracing would work just as well for what Eric and I want to do.
I'm just going to use that to transfer it on some masonite for a template.

I'm glad you said that, I might just draw it in Illustrator this morning, since this is our "lazy" day at work. :thumbs:

Good job, maing. There's absolutely nothing wrong with turning a buck with geetars! I know a guy that doesn't have a regular job. He's in 2 different bands, gigs at least 4 times a week, and trades gear on ebay. That's the way he makes a living. Pretty cool, I must say. :icon_bigg
