Re: Current RG1527 users...need your help!
Taking the plunge...I'm ordering my RG1527RB today.
My Sweetwater guy is getting one "fresh off the line" from Ibanez.
I played a new/used one two or three weeks ago at a shop, and as anticipated, it plays more or less exactly like my RG570 (except, you know, with a seventh string). The one I played was set up REALLY BADLY (this was one of those well worn "new" wall-hangers at GC, naturally), and they wanted $900 for it, but no case, and like I said, the setup was crap and there were finger smudges and little circle pick scratches all over it.
I'm not a big fan of buying guitars essentially "sight unseen", but in this case, I don't think I can really go wrong.
