Re: RG 560...similar body to RG 550?

Both the 570 and 560 are rear routed (no pickguard) and are the same except for the pickup layout. (560=HSS and 570=HSH)

The 550 is the same HSH layout, but with a pickguard.

the necks could be a little different.thats my experience with different rg 550.570.560.the 700 series have a different feel.(750/usa custom) but it must be the same.so you have to feel it yourself.and their all good guitars

The neck should be no different. The 5xx series all have Wizard neck.
