Please help me decide on an Ibanez... RG320 vs 1570

Well i was considering going for either a 1570 or 1550... however i just saw the Ibanez RG320FA and now im wondering which to get.
The 320 is cheaper than the 1570, however im not really sure on the differences asides from the pickups on the 320 being
PSND1 (H) neck pu
PSND2 (H) bridge pu

What are your recommendations?

I have a price range of max 500 too.

As much as I prefer the look of the 320, the Prestige would be a better guitar all the way around...esp. with the upgraded bridge. Consider a used 3120.

With 500 in your pocket to spend, I'd advise purchasing from the States, taking advantage of the exchange rate at the moment, coupled with lower US pricing anyway.

I'd personally be looking for a high level RG, maybe a second hand RG700 series or USA custom or similar.

Of the guiatrs you've mentioned, I'd advise the RG1570/1550, the extra finishin steps and the better trem should be more beneficial than a purely decorative top.
