Re: Alternatives to a RG 570
I just got a RG570 from **** 2 months ago for $235ish with shipping. It was my first one. I like it but it was beat up so I am currently painting it & putting in new pickups. I still like my RG550s with the maple fretboards better sound wise, but if you get a RG550, 560, 750, 760, 770 with rosewood fretboards they all should be just as good or better than the 570. If you want the original Edge remember nothing below the 500 RG series has them (Unless put in and modded after market). If you want a dot fret marker & unbound neck, stay away from the DX models too. As far as the 350MDX & 370DX, well I can't say about the 350MDX, but I have a 350DX (Rosewood instead of maple fretboard) and I have a 370DX coming in. The 350 is a pretty decent guitar for the money and is the reason I got the 370 coming in as these 2 won't get played much but will do for 1 project I need to have way low tuned guitars. These would be great back up guitars for a cheap price or even as a main guitar for a cheap price, but the trems aren't as good as the old edges are.
