to be honest with you, as far as current production models go, I think it would be the RG620X. I found it VERY similar to the 570 only it had piezo pickups in it. basically the same guitar otherwise. so that appointment alone i think would make it better, in a direct comparison of the two. other than that, if you dont like piezos its the 570 hands down

Depending on personal preference, I think some folks would say that the RG520 and RG550 are as good or better than the 570. I would take a 520 over a 550.

But, honey, you've already got that Cort thing, why do you need another guitar?

In the range available to the USA, the RG500 series is the "next best thing". It's down to personal preference as to whether you like the RG550 or RG570, some folks like maple, some like rosewood, some like a scratchplate and some don't.

The Japanese range has other prestige RGs other thna the RG3120, but I believe the top of the range non-prestige RG is currently the RG770FM.

I just got a brand new RG570 yesterday! And I just love this!

I prefer 570 over 550... I don't like that plastic-what-ever-you-call-it-gadget. If I had some extra 1000/$ I'd go for RG3120.

yeah that is one of the reasons i like the 570 better than the 550, i cant stand that cheesy pickguard, thats also why i'm not too crazy about the jems either they have the pickguards too, dont get me wrong i like the jem but i dont like pickguards on em.

Oh crap with these Japanese models... :P

Is there a big difference between 550's and 570's fretboards?
