difference between RG2570Z and RG2550Z?

Hi! i'd like to know the difference between the RG2570Z and RG2550Z? I checked the ibanez website and the specs look identical except that the RG2550Z has a scratchplate. Is this the only difference?

That and the fact that the 2550 has guard-mounted pickups and on the 2570 the pickups are direct-mounted, if that helps you decide

The finish and colors available are also different, the Vital Silver looks sweet!

well i mean that's kind of a given. A pick guard usually means it's front routed hehe

call me crazy but i prefer tone tone of the front routed rg's (550's 2550's)
they seem to sound more acoustic to me?
the newer 2550z's are to die for,if they are not the Lamborghini of electrics NOTHING is!
