Buying RG1570 or RG2570 ?

Okey.. I live far away from any shop that hold any of these. Just traveling to a shop that holds them would cost me 25% of the cost of a new RG1570.

I'm going to order either the RG1570 or the RG2570 but have a few questions.

From what I read the only difference between the RG2570 and the RG1570 are the pickups(and the sharktooth inlays ofcourse).

In your opinion is the RG2570 worth to get just because of the pickups? Or am I better off getting a RG1570 and replace it's pickups at some time, but I will have to live with the original pickups for a year or two.

Hey Bellman, i was in the same position as you are for awhile. I wanted a prestige rg model and it came down to the 1570 or the 2570. I felt that the 2570 just looks alot sharper than the 1570. Also i love the shark tooth inlay look. Also i felt that down the road if i got the 1570 i would probably replace the stock pickups. The 2570 already comes with some pretty good dimarzios, so i felt spending the extra money for the 2570 was diffently worth. I should have it in a couple of weeks if you want me to let you know how i like it.

I'm getting a 1570l but with an evo in the bridge (others are stock for now due to lack of funds )From what I heard about the stocks in the 1570, they arent really the greatest so if you get that then you should plan on changing the pickups. It's due to arive in a couple of weeks too, so i'll let you know what i think about her.

So basically wait a few weeks and you got reviews of both guitars.

yep. i have the same problem. but the dofference is i want a RG2550
the DiMarzio Ibanez is great but not the best. i think the DiMarzio Tone Zone, Evo, Paf Pro, etc... are better (of course). i will change the pickups to TZ or EVO anyways... so im worrying about spending those extra money and still end up changing the pickups...
one thing is that the 2550 looks a lot better than the 1550
arrrrrhhh!!! i'm stuck!! arrrhrhrhhrrh!!

if it were me, Id replace the dimarzio/ibz in the 2570, so the more economic option is definatly the 1570, however, the 1570 looks really cool.

I hesitate myself whenever I look at them! Think I'd go for the 2570, gotta love that flat grey finish and the smoked inlays! Pickups are secondary, its not like they are powersounds nor Vs (which arent thaaat bad)

Ibanez RG2570EX, it's a better quality finish than the 1570, it has dimarzio/ibz buckers and shartooth inlays etc. it's a good guitar for the price.

RG2570ex! it rocks big time. got one myself and i had never regreted ever since. you can always change the pickups if you don't like it tough.. But you can never change its identity. Haha...

THe only thing I can add is that the 2570 has a more substantial neck. While both models have prestige 3 piece necks, the 1570 has the thin Wizard profile and hte 2570 actually has a meatier profile which suits me more personally. That might be something to take into consideration

I had a bash at a 2750 today. Fantastic guitar, and I didn't realise the finish was textured like a Jem 90th. Nice.
