Re: Which one to choose?
The neck on the 570 is not better by design/quality. many people prefer the "super wizard" that's on it because of the thinner profile and the bubinga "skunk stripe".
I would take the 550 myself because of all the guitars I've had/have, I've never had a 550. If the condition of the guitars are equal, then you should choose the one you like the looks of best. The v7-v8 pups are no slouches. They kick butt if you switch the magnet in them (v7 magnet to v-8/ v8 magnet to v7). We call it the "Phantom MOD" in honor of our own LonePhantom who discovered it.
