2000 rg 570 vs. 2006 rg 1570 prestige

hi,
i was wondering? currently i own an rg570 and now i recently got a prestige 1570 and was wondering if it would be fair to claim the 570 as a "predecessor"
to the 1570 and if not can someone explain the differences to me. also ive been trying to get an idea of what the 570 would have cost back in 2000 new if someone knows that i would appreciate it thanks!

Yes, the RG570 is predecessor...

The RG1570 gets the "prestige" neck profile, and 5 piece construction, the "All Access Neck Joint" or AANJ, and the "Edge Pro" tremolo and non-locking studs.
Plus there is the fact that the wood/hardware is higher quality on the prestige. And there are 7 or 9 extra hand steps taken on a prestige neck - fret ends, fret leveling and such.

The RG570 gets the older "wizard" profile, and a scarf joint, either the older plate joint (or the AANJ), and the original "Edge" and locking studs.

Visit the Ibanez Wikia page on the RG570 for more info.

Your 2000 RG570 should have a bubinga stripe Super Wizard. Advantage RG570.
Your 2006 RG1570 has direct-mounted pickups. Advantage RG1570.
I have pretty much the same guitars and "predecessor" is a good word. They're not quite the same guitar.

All of this is correct except this part...... "Plus there is the fact that the wood/hardware is higher quality on the prestige."

There is no difference in the woods used on prestige's unless they are transparent finished. The 570 and the 1570 both have 4 or 5 piece basswood construction........ depending on the width of the wood being used at the time. I've stripped 350's, a 450, some 550's and 570's, and a 1570 or two........ the only one that I had that was a different quality was one of the 350's. It had a metric ton of filler under the original finish.

The 1570 has a better finish I think. The last few years of non-Prestige MIJ had CRAP paint finish!
