Question 550, 560 or 570...

OK Guys, there's been a lot of talk recently abou thow the RG560 is underrated. A few years ago the same topic, but with the RG570 was en vogue. EYears before that the RG570 was all the rage and both the 550 and 560 seemed to be regarded as less desirable, so much so that the 560 production stopped.

So... Which is your favourite or the guitars. In fact, lets vote on an order of preference. No ties, what's the order?

(now if I can only get the poll options right )

550-570-560, but that's a tough one. I've got a PN of each and love them all pretty much equally. Preference changes every month with those! One month, my 570 is the "IT" guitar, next month it's the 560, etc.

That's what we need to trade off to get the maple board--I'm the same way.

I have a 560 body with a 565 neck. Maple board and reverse headstock. The best of all worlds

LOL. Holy crap bro, of course I did a Google search. Like everything, I'd like to buy one from somebody that a fellow guitarist has had a good experience with instead of just pointing and clicking.

I kept that one out of the poll on purpose as in many circles it's regarded as a "bit different" to the others.

I was going for 3 pickup, standard headstock "routine" RGs.

Well, that link I gave you is of a very good Koa veneer. You'll have a good experience with it--it'll kiss you before you start cutting and sanding.....LOL.
