New RG2570E Vital GOld

I just saw this new RG in Musician's Friend. I love the yellow and black Ibanez color. I painted my 1989 RG570 Desert Yellow about a year ago:


Mine


BUt, the new one on Musicians Friend is almost identical. Edge Pro Tremolo, wizard neck with shark tooth inlays. Glad they brought this back.

According to Rich (Ibanez Rules) pics, that new finish doesn't look that yellow in person.

That's true, here are some more pics:

I don't think it looks bad, needs a pickguard though!

Re: New RG2570E Vital GOld

That looks pretty good.
Like to see it in person.

I really like gold metallic finishes. Goldtop Les pauls, early Fender colors
like Shoreline or Firemist gold.

I saw it in a store recently and it was pretty neat. It's no Desert Yellow though!

I concur, local store has one, it's about as gold looking as the other one [VSL] is silver looking, it's more of a flat-limey-mustard; cool nonetheless, but it desperately needs a pickguard, preferably one with a similar cracked/bubbly appearance as the finish.

he means that his is VERY silver and this one is VERY gold. that's all. like your right shoe is as much for a right foot as your left shoe is as much for your left foot. (bad analogy but you get the point i think )

the gold is cool. i'd like the silver with the ghost teeth inlays myslf. i want more textured finishes. these are pretty cool.

I don't like it. The non-matched headstock looks wrong and the inlays are too "heavy metal" for me.

Re: New RG2570E Vital GOld

they do look "Metal" but to me just a little more subtle than the full dble shark's teeth inlays. i'm still drooling over the RG2610e with the same inlays and classy bound black body.

Re: New RG2570E Vital GOld

Dots would look better, IMO. I find sharktooth inlays look a bit played out and kinda make the instrument less appealing to anyone other than metal guitarists.
