Just bought a new 1570 this week in nickel. I'm really impressed with the workmanship and materials in this axe, especially being a PRS, Fender, Gibson, Guild guy for many years. Once I got it set up to my taste, it plays great and stays in tune rock solid. I've seen some gripes about the V series pickups, but I think they sound good, and match well to the type of guitar it's supposed to be. I get some very useable clean sounds using the bridge and neck pickups in combo with the middle, by rolling back the tone pot a bit.
I think it's a really great axe, plays great, sounds great, a good value and looks bitchin' too. Good luck with your decision.
