Re: RG1570 vs RG550 Twentieth anniversary
Well, I ended up going for the 550XX. Just picked it up today. So far, I am pretty dang happy with my choice. It looks great. It didn't have the stock pickups, they had been replaced with Petrucci pickups, which I guess is probably a good thing. The only negative about the guitar is, the hex nut where you tighten the bridge onto the guitar, has been broken. The bridge itself is fine, but if I ever want to remove it or anything, it might be difficult. Have to look to see if I can just pick up a replacement nut/bolt for that part, or if I need to replace the whole bridge.
In any case, I am pretty happy right now. So much LOVE the neck. Now if only I didn't have to sit here at work for the rest of the day. I want to go home right now and plug it in.
