Re: Looking into getting a prestige
I have the 1570z and also the 3250mz which is basically the same as the 3550mz except for cosmetics. Playability wise the 3250 is better IMO. It has a thinner neck and it's just more comfortable and makes playing effortless. I have both of them setup to have really low action but again, the 3250 feels ways better than the 1570. As far as tone goes the 3250 sounds somewhat brighter I guess this is due to the maple fretboard as opposed to the rosewood on the 1570. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.
You will not regret buying that 3550, it's by far the most amazing guitar I have ever played.
