Is this Ibanez any good? (PRESTIGE RG1570)

I'm still new to Ibanez, I currently own a lefty RG350 and am looking to upgrade. The ad says it's missing the tremolo bar, would it be hard to find a replacement considering it's left handed?

I'm sure it's good I guess what I'm asking is it a considerable/noticeable upgrade tone-wise from the RG350DXL and for the price that they're asking. Thanks.

I play hard rock/metal, though a 50watt tube amp, have SD-JB, SD-Custom Custom, DM-SD, EVH-Frankenstein.

All I can tell you is that used righty 1570s go for like $400-$700 at GC. Looks like the lefty trem arm for an Edge Pro is $20 on Ibanezrulez.com (not a plug, just trying to help).

That's good to know about the tremolo arm. I ask because I can't find anywhere that has ZR tremolo screws in stock.

GC? Guitar Center?

Sorry for all the questions, being left handed there's hardly ever a decent one in a store to try out so I have to go by info from the internet. This site is great though.

That's a lousy price man... Do you have to buy from the UK? If you go on the US ebay you'll find more options at much better prices.

And yes even an older RG550 or RG570 will be a significant upgrade over a 350...

Agreed, the first is a lousy price especially when you could get a new one for $850ish.

I don't see anything better than the RG350 except for 1-370 and a few Prestiges.
