Ibanez RG570 (MIJ 1990) vs Ibanez RG2570 RBX Prestige
I need a shredder guitar and I've always loved Ibanez for this. You know the deal: basswood body, thin fast neck and an easy working, solid trem that doesn't go out of tune. Must be able to do the trem flutter thing easily; I already have other brand guitars with Floyds that need a pretty strong push to work (that's the way I set 'em so they don't go out of tune too much when I play rhythm...), so I really want an Edge trem which excells at everything vibrato, including those delicious trem-flutters.
I have two second-hand options listed in the classifieds, which in my neck of the woods is a pretty rare thing:
1) An old Japanese Ibanez RG570 (MIJ in 1990) - black with the original Edge trem; has the old "block-type" neck joint (prior to AANJ). Pretty good condition judging from the pics but still 28 years old; don't know how that trem's been treated during all these years. No case.
2) Ibanez RG2570 RBX Prestige, Team J-craft, possibly one of the early production ones around 2005-2006. Royal blue, has the newer Edge Pro trem and AANJ joint. Pretty beaten up looking, but has a case and it's in my town so I can actually try it in person.
The RG570 is about 120 EUR (abt 150 us$) cheaper than the Prestige.
I already have a Tone Zone and an Evolution Neck sitting in a drawer at home and I will be changing the pickups anyway, so that's not actually a decisive factor. Although both stock pickup options do seem pretty OK (V7/V8 on the 570 and Dimarzio/Ibz on the Prestige)
I kind of like the vibe of the old RG570 better than the Prestige, but I'm worried the 28-old trem might give me trouble. And I can't play the RG570 because it's a 3 hour drive away.
Which one do you think is the better guitar? Which one should I get?
