Re: ibanez rg3170 andrg3120 Questions
Firstly none of the models you mention are 'J Customs' as such, if it says 'Prestige' on the headstock that's what it is !!! The RGT3170 is a through neck model with matching flame maple headstock and neck binding that's why it's relatively expensive. I'd personally recommend the RG8570, It's a 'real' J Custom' as it says on the headstock ( with the JC AANJ, recessed controls and jack position ) has a matching flame maple headstock, flame maple neck binding, arguably the best pup combination (Air Norton/Blue Velvet/Tone Zone) and a slightly narrower but thicker neck profile. And it's amazing value at around £1149 if you shop around !!
Hope that hasn't caused more confusion for you !!!
All the best,
