Need Info on an old RG 570!


There is an second hand RG 570 for sale and I was wonderin if some1 could give me some info on it.

Here are the specs
Transparent blue with some sort of flame/quilt
Lo pro edge
Gold hardware
v8+s1+v7 pickups (i think)

Is this a rare model? It is priced at $660 (aussie dollars) if you wanna know the price in U.S dollars just half the amount. I need a second guitar as a backup cause my 520qs is gettin thrashed ( the cosmo black has already worn off the trem). Any feedback would be most appreciated.

Hey Cal,

From my catalogues, this could be either an RG570CTTB from the 95 catalogue, or... and RG570GFSVS from 93 but more likely the former.

The CT is believed to be a misprint and should have been GT standing for Gravure Top (basically a photograph of flame maple) These guitars have the AANJ so if the one you're looking at has an AANJ as opposed to an old fender style neck plate, it's more than likely one of these. These guitars also featured a Pau Ferro fingerboard and an Alder body. These guitars had direct mounted pickups with no pickup rings.

The TB stands for Transparent Blue.

The older GF (Gravure Flame) was a more purpley blue and the SVS stands for See through Violet Sunburst. it had a darker bursted edge to the finish and the humbuckers were mounted in rings. The fingerboard was a often a darker rosewood and the headstock did NOT come with the modern tell tale RG series logo under the "swoosh". These guitars had the old bulky neck plate joint at the neck.

I can't but a value on either guitar really as they often are region specific, but I will say that there's a very good condition RG570CTTB for sale near me at £599. However I'm not buying it at that price

Hope that helps somewhat. Oh and I seem to remember our VIP member Kirk had an RG570CT for a while so if he sees this thread he may be able to offer more advice

if 660 australian is 330 US i would say it's a good price. (given it's a CT). for that price, add a couple Dimarzios's and it's still good.

It is a 570CT because I remeber seeing the direct mounted p/ups.

Thanks for ya help. What kinda sound does an alder body put out? I have a 520qs at the moment..will sound differ much from that?

the 1992 catalog shows three RG570s. These would have the old heel-joint (not AANJ)

RG570FM (basswood & flame maple top)
RG570 (basswood)
RG570L (lefty)

alder bodies are usually trebley and bright, yet every one ive ever played tended to get a wee bit thick with extreme output pickups, which is an awesome combination with the right pickups
