My first Ibanez was a 1991 RG570, I paid $250 in a pawnshop (I bought it in 1992), came with a hardshell Ibanez case. I didn't know what the heck I was buying, just that it looked cool and seemed to play well. It was my 2nd guitar, (first was a pretty cool little customized Fender Squier strat with a warmoth neck, locking tuners, custom pups, but I digress.) I'd only been playing for a couple years.
The bridge was a mystery, and big pain in the ass to me at first, I had it for a few weeks before I broke the first string. Then I had to go down to Sears to buy an allen wrench. I knew it played and sounded great, but it was years before I realized that I'd actually gotten a pretty great little guitar and one of the better Ibanez models made. Only later, after buying a few more various Ibanez's did I become familiar enough with the Ibanez line to realize the 570 was something special.
