Maybe he meant a used RG550 or RG570 or something like that which someone bought, used for a week, then put back in the case and forgot about for a few years.

That's my best guess anyways. It is the only plausible thing I can think of.

Re: RG1570

Yeah something like that.

please people we need every sentence to have a subject, verb and object. Also, the subject should be clear and no ambiguos (but obviously spelling isn't that important, see underlined word. how do you spell that anyways?).


Oh well, I'm sure what ever he meant it was really cool.

How can you b1tch about other peoples grammar when yours isn't even correct, you should never start a sentence with "Yeah" or "Oh". Any 5th grade English teacher would have a stroke if they saw that, and any Catholic school English teacher would be beating you with a ruler

Ambiguous

Yes, I got a mint "used" 1570 for under $400...probably a present that was strummed a few times and put back in the case.

Re: RG1570

Re: RG1570

It's actually very true. Although a pretty guitar won't get the burly metal head behind it into bed with a hot chick, it'll at least keep the attention away from the other guy playing a Les Paul, and that's what this is all about.

Re: RG1570

And if the MRR can't do that you need a flamed top RGA

Re: RG1570

It is EXACTLY like a JEM sans the monkey grip and pups- oh and about $1900! You can go to ibanez.com and do a comparison of the 1570 and the JEM77.

I got my 1570MBR in a local Sam Ash for $600. It's one of my favorites. It's super lightweight and great for hard rock. Much more comfy than an LP.

Arnprior is around 30 Minutes Southwest of Ottawa. a Shop in ottawa is getting one in soon so i can try it

And yeah, same thing: They are Idiots (long & McQuade)

All RG's are like Jems, the entire line was derived as a cheaper version of the Jem. $1900 is an exaggeration though, the difference between the two is more along the lines of $1450, best case scenario. If you factor in getting RG1570's on sale, the price difference goes down because you can save more money on a more expensive guitar than a cheaper one. I saw one of the alder Jems at a sale that was about $1400 (no negotiating either that was the price after the guaranteed sale discount), and you are never going to find an $800 on a $750 guitar.

But the JEMs neck dimensions are different. That's something you can't forget. It isn't a wizard neck. It's not a huge difference but it is a difference. It's okay to say it's a lot like a JEM, because cosmetics (tree of lfe, possibly the monkey grip and others) to a large extent don't change the playability or sound of a guitar.

Also the quality is better on a JEM so it's not like you can go buy a RG1570 and say that the craftsmanship is the same standard or the wood used is the same grade (especially the fretboard). So it's not like people are idiots because they buy a JEM when they could have the same guitar for less. It's not qite that way, but it is for the money extremely close to a JEM for not being extremely close to the price of a JEM.

Re: RG1570

I know the RG's have a few different necks, but I thought one of the versions of the Wizard did have the same specs as the Jem though. They are still pretty close.

But yeah, RGs are cheaper versions of the Jem, not just the same guitar without the cosmetics added on.
