Look here:

Looks a little homemade (XL-55pro with white paint), but the extremely rare XL88 came in a few strange flavours, obviously they were made on a single piece basis by ZEN masters in a process of several weeks ... ;)

I would immediately buy it, if I knew, that the tip is still existing ...

I think I have something on the 88D Custom, something "official", but I don't recall it being white for sure.

The "custom" here is perhaps dual : from Sony and the previous owner :-)

I've seen them in purple on eBay in the past. Definitely something to crave, but you have no right to complain M, owning an XL-55Pro ;)

Is that a ruby cantilever?

The "D" in XL-88D stand for Diamond : cantilever and stylus are made of a single piece of diamond.
