my new years list

Hi, i an new to this forum and thought i would start with this!

i am looking at getting two ibanez guitars in the new year. a S470 and a EDR170. i want the S470 to be a kind of satriani/vai type of lead guitar, as a hear the ZR trem is very good, with a norton in the bridge and a paf pro in the neck. and the edr as type of rock guitar. Any other suggestions to what i could get?

O and on another note, i have a rg570 (2002) in mint condition nothing wrong with it at all, any idea how much i could sell it for. (i live in the uk)

Mike

Don't sell an RG570!!! I have tried the S series guitars a few times but they've all played differently. So I guess you need to buy one from a shop. Personally I wouldn't bother with the EDR but its up tro you.

My first Ibanez (I still have it) was a S540 Sabre (one of the earlier models). I love it, I just don't like where Ibanez has taken the S series. I could well be mistaken, but I think the 470 is Korean made. It's a nice guitar, but if I had my druthers I'd try to pick up one of the Japan-made models. Either way, l think it'll do what you want it to do.

To go with the previous two posts: Your RG570 is hands down a better guitar than the 2 that you are considering, although the new S470 isn't too shabby! I here good stories about it, but still I'd go for a S5xx-series. I don't think you'll be disappointed, bit if you're used to a RG570 there is a slight possibility that will happen.

If your stuck on selling the RG, I've got an indication: Here in Holland RG570s usually do about E500.

Like the others said don't sell a great guitar to get one good and one that's just a budget instrument.

You can get around 350 for the 570 if you include good pics and an informative description.

Yeah same as the others.
In the UK RG550's and RG570's go for about 300 - 350 regularly on the good ole auction site
But only if they have a good HONEST description and very good pics. Some people just wont pay that much. But you should be alright and get that 350 for it.

But as I said, all the RG5xx series I have bought have been under 300. You just gotta get lucky.
Good Luck!
