Re: Which RG? Looking to buy tomorrow
I also looked at the 2550, but I ended up getting a 1570 and changing the pickups.
They felt identical to me, but I chose the 1570, as I could put the exact pickups I want in it, and it still cost slightly less than the 2550.
Both are great value for money, but for me, the option of changing to my choice of pickups for around the same price made the 1570 the more attractive guitar. Don't get me wrong, the ibz's in the 2550 sound good, but I wanted a specific set of Duncans.
Plus, I like the mirage finish more than the galaxy black, and I don't like pickguards.
