RG1520 or RG1570?

Hey, how's everyone doing, thanks for stoping by and reading this.

First off, my english is really bad, so excuses for the bad grammar, I need a new guitar, after testing some Jacksons (PRO and MG series) and ESPs, I wasn't really convinced so I tried some RGs and sticked to these two (RG1520 & RG1570), the question is, which one is the best one to get, the 1570 or the 1520, the 1520 model has piezo electronics (to tell you the truth i'm not familiar with piezo tech), the dilemma here if it's better in any way to have the GK piezo than an ordinary pickup model, if so , i could pay the extra bucks. Thanks for the Replies

Not so bad; thanks for asking.

Edit: Do you really need a single-coil in the middle slot? I would probably get the 1520 over the 1570.

Personally, if I was going to spend a substantial amount of money on a "Prestige" Ibanez guitar, I would go a little higher end like an RG2xxx that come stock with Dimarzio pickups.

Just my opinion, though.
