Thumbs up 2010 J-Custom RG 8570Z: Which one would you choose?? (Pics)

Hi All!

After a lot of struggle and a few disappointments, I have finally found what I'm looking for. An Ibanez RG8570Z J-Custom! And I have two to choose from!!

Originally I preferred the darker (bluer) purple, but I also like the wider, darker flames of the lighter coloured one.

The final decision obviously lies with me, but I am very interested to know which one you would choose if these were the two options available to you, and why

Kind Regards.

I would certainly go for the upper one, since the top is just Marvelous although it does look a little pink-ish.
But thats ust my opinion, go for the darker one if you like it better

The bottom one for me. The flame seems better book matched and even. Don't know if it's really darker or if it's the light in the picture, but dark is good

I wish I could post more pics... The one is definitely darker with more of a blue undertone. The darker one's flames are much straighter and finer. The lighter one has a more red undertone and the flames are more exaggerated and darker. They are not nearly as fine or as straight as the darker one but they definitely stand out much more on all the photos I have.

Thanks for the replies!

Opinions other than my own are exactly what I'm after. I appreciate yours!

I totally agree with you.

Seeing that I'm coming from a Jem77FP, neither shocking nor classy should be a concern, right??
Jokes aside, I'd love to own a new Jem77FP, especially if it had an all access neck joint. A man can only dream...


Cannot wait to run my fingers up a j-customs neck for the first time……….

aside from the color, I personally like the flame on the top... the flame on the bottom looks kinda "washed out" from the extra blue?
... sides, the top one is easily asking for pink and purple pups :P

The first one! The wider flames really bring them out. To me, that's what you want in a flamed top.

I like the top one....reminds me of a tigerstripe pattern.
I've got a stunning Purple one myself!

Those look like they are coming from James. Should be great! I have 4 different J Customs from him.

Enjoy!!!!

Re: 2010 J-Custom RG 8570Z: Which one would you choose?? (Pics)

Thanks for all your replies and input! Much Appreciated.

I did a quick calculation from the feedback I received from everyone I've asked to choose which one they would have chosen themselves. The results were astonishing, or maybe not..... .......almost exactly 50/50 with only 1 vote in favour of the lighter example with the darker, wider flames.

Unfortunately I just couldn't get myself to make a decision in the end, so I ordered and paid for both a few minutes ago! …...the excitement!!! I'll probably sell the one I least prefer to buy a RG8420ZE J-Custom (EMG's) in Black Onyx or an ESP KH-2 NTB. Then of course there’s the new Music Man JPX which will also be available soon… Pity I can’t have them all, but hey, I’d probably die of excitement if that was the case... ...judging by how I’m feeling already!

I've waited all my life to own one not to mention two of these incredible Instruments. I am humbled by the privilege. Now where can I book myself in for sleep therapy for the next four days? ...mmm

Kind Regards

Exactly what my thoughts where. (Regarding the tiger stripes) Thanks for the vote of confidence!! Can't wait to play them!
