Presitige Pickups?

I was comparing 2 of my guitars today.
• 1995 RG570CTAM With D’Addario 10’s
• 2004 RG2550EX stock strings 9’s
The RG570CTAM seems to have richer sounding pickups. deeper, cleaner sound.
I have to believe the RG2550EX has better pickups.
Is it the strings? or are older RG’s made better?

Re: Presitige Pickups?

What pickups are in the 570? Stock pickups (even on Prestiges) arent that great.
Did you buy the 570 used? Because the previous owner could have changed the pickups.

use the same string gauges on both guitars, then compare.
