New (used) Guitar Day

https://drive.google.com/folderview?...kU&usp=sharing

New Guitar Day!

2004 RG2570VSL

Well, it was a while ago I just haven't been able to get on for a while.
Got it at a pawnie, like all of my other guitars... and loving it!
Very different feel, the texture of the finish, the insanely thin neck, the rosewood board.
I even like the pickups, but they can get a little muddy with really high gain... it's not much of an issue since I don't use a ton of gain anyway.
Happy NGD to me, happy NGD to me!

Re: New (used) Guitar Day

Congrats. It's kind of funny how Ibanez put out a number of textured guitars about ten years ago. Do you find the neck to feel thinner than the 1550 you have?

Re: New (used) Guitar Day

Killer guitar! Congrats!
I love Edge Pro! And I dig the Dimarzio/IBZ pickups as well. The neck pickup is okay but I love the bridge pickup.
Enjoy!

Wow, that's a very neat guitar, simply loving this color! Congratulations with the new guitar, Matias! You must have build quite a collection already.
Going to post a video of it anytime soon?

Yes, thank you. Much!
Still some tingling in my pinky, but it's no longer totally numb so I can play as long as I'm not trying to play Eugine's Trick Bag... oh wait, I couldn't play that before....

The neck is much thinner than my 1550.
I checked the specs, it's 56mm instead of 58mm, and the shape is more U than C, I think that's the right way of putting it. The 1550 feels more like a C shape, with wider 'shoulders' where the 2570 doesn't feel like there's nearly as much of a rounded shape. The 1550 really fills my hand where the 2570 is a pencil.
The neck is only 17mm at the nut, so yes, much thinner all around.
Even thinner than the RG550. Not by much, but I can definitely feel it.
The 2570 may become my main player, it feels that good. It could just be because it's new to me though.....the others will still get some love, you know it.
