RG2550 and the RG2570..questions
Man, the 2550 seems like a pretty popular guitar here...I'm still waiting for mine to show up, and I'm already thinking of getting a backup to put in drop D tuning...
...I was thinking of a 2570 RG since it's in a store here, and the dudes at the store are dropping the price cause it's not selling. Had I known it was there before I ordered mine, I might have been tempted...I'm a fan of the shark inlays, but not the textured paint...plus, while the lack of pickguard looks nice, I worry about the abuse to the paint finish over the years.
But the price is pretty good, a few hundred less than my ordered 2550. My question is this, are the only differences in these two models cosmetic? I would say so, same wood, electronics. Far as I can tell, just the paint and inlays and pickguard.
What I was thinking was modding the 2570, which shouldn't be too tough...a paintjob for sure, although it might grown on me, you never know...what do you think as far as the specs? Am I on the right track?
