Re: RG1570

I have one and I think it's fantastic. The neck is very smooth. The handiwork is good. The trem is great. Sometime soon, I may buy another one.

Re: RG1570

i love my 1570. it has a tone zone / air norton combo with the stock single. stays in tune great and plays nice. you cant beat them for the price they go for used.i bought mine used/mint at gc for $315.
570s usually go even cheaper and are essentially the same guitar.
520s are also a good option if you dont need the single coil and want a mahogany body. they can be found CHEAP.

not this time. they actually had it tagged as a 1570.
i buy quite a bit of used gear at my local gcs and daddys junky musics. i bought a mint ibanez proline with an edge for $150 once.
last week i bought a cheap ibanez that was stripped to natural(really bad finish) with an original floyd, emg hz and a real seymour duncan for $129.
3 weeks ago i bought a black 7620 that was marked as a 7421 for $230. cleaned it up and it's in great shape.
a few months ago i bought an esp m-107 with a new cliplock strap, dimarzio d-sonic and graphtech saddles for $100.
now i need to sell some parts to buy an rg520 for $250. for some reason, everyone around here wants a new guitar. works out well for me.

I'm even willing to deal with the Mirage Red paint job (it's a lot less boring than the black/grey of the new RGR1570, even though I dig the reversed headstock).

Somehow, this model was able to solve all the problems I have with my Jackson DK2M, which include:

-obnoxious large heel
-oh-so terrible trem system
-general playability

What's the general JEMsite consensus on this model?

Also, what exactly separates the Prestige series from regular Ibanezes?

Thanks.
Welcome to the club. I was a big Jackson collector and once I discovered the wonder of the Wizard neck, unmatched fretwork, better pickups and Edge trems, I put approx. 50 Charvels and Jacksons into their cases and stacked them up in closets. I don't play them anymore and I don't miss them.
