Smile J-Custom RG8570 Arrived Today

This arrived today from Japan and I managed to avoid custom fees, Im very happy it is absolutely mint, only thing is Im not sure if Im keeping it as I have a RG2770 arriving and I cant afford both, this was an impulse buy which I didn't think I'd get!!!

The RG8570 is way superior to the RG2770, no contest. Was it from Ishibashi ?

Re: J-Custom RG8570 Arrived Today

The red is a strange colour, it does look quite dark but when the light hits it it seems to look a lot brighter. I didn't think I'd be too keen on the colour but it is very nice a lot nicer than I imagined.
I got the guitar off e**y, I bidded a lot lower than the buy it now not expecting to get it, so I was quite shocked when I found out my bid had been accepted. Just dont know if I can afford to keep it

Just testing the water, if I can sort things out financially I would like to keep it, but the wife is giving me a hard time
First J-custom I've had and they are awesome guitars, the more I play it the more I want to keep it

In what ways is it way supperior? I have a 2770 and I'm very happy with it. But it's good to have something to aim for in the future I've never had a chanse to try a J-custom - so if you could describe what you mean that'd be great.

Very nice choice. I like the dots too, I prefer them to the vine, looks clean.
