need help - RG570 thoughts?

been looking at an early 90's, made in Japan, RG570 on ebay and would appreciate any feedback / thoughts on the guitar.

Looks like its got V1 / V2 HSH configuration with an Edge trem

anyone have one of these? I hear the 5XX late 80's / early 90's Japan Ibby's were the some of the best they made and this might be my chance to get in.

All the 570's are great, depends if you like the square heel or the aanj, The wiz1 and super wiz are the same profile, just the super wiz has the bubinga strip. V1,V2 are usually considered better sounding pickups, but heck most people swap either set out anyway.

+1

I have a 550 (93) and 560 (90) and they are awesome guitars. I do prefer AANJ do Square heel but they still play amazingly.

I have an RG570FM from the early 90s and have owned it since new. It's a great guitar. The Rosewood board is so tight, you can barely see any grain.

But the neck is too thin. That said, I use to love the thinness.

Somehow I've managed to go all these years without changing the stock v7, s1, and v8 pups. But this week she's getting a paf 36th and paf 36th bridge installed.
