Re: RG547

Here's my RG570

Note the same hardware (except my bridge is a lo-pro), pup rings, jack, fret board dots, etc.

From what I remember, in the mid 90's the RG54x series all had scratch plates, and the RG57x series were like mine and yours.

Re: RG547

I really need to get some pics up as this seems to be generating some conflicting views now and i would really like to get to the bottom of it if possible. I just noticed i got a digit wrong in the previously posted serial it's actually F513589 not 69, but i doubt this really makes any difference.
I can't submit any links or images at the moment as i only have 2 posts but if anyone wants the pics i have taken, i can email them. Failing that i'll just have to make some random posts to get over the 10 limit.

I'm happy to say that you've got an RG547.

The F5 shows it's a 95, the picts you've posted show the gold Edge and the ash body. It's an RG547. Nuff said.

Re: RG547

Nice one, so as I suspected then! So I picked it up for £475 as an RG570. Does this mean I got a good deal??

Re: RG547

It's about right assuming that it's in good condition.

In the UK these were sold as RG547.
It's really a 570 with ash body and gold hardware but was sold as RG547 to differentiate to the usual RG570s.

Re: RG547

The natural ash body is the deciding feature here, as the RG570CTAM had gold hardware too.

It's also worth noting that the 570CT also had an alder body and a Pau Ferro fingerboard.

The earlier 570FM also came with gold hardware in 93 and had a basswood body.

Re: RG547

Thanks for all your help on this guys, glad i got to the bottom of it in the end. It really is a nice guitar and in good condition, the gold hardware has worn down to the base metal in a few areas, but i kinda like that. As a beginner / intermediate, for me it is a massive step up from what i was playing.
I think it probably would benefit from a setup as there is a slight buzz on the low 'E', i don't have any experience of a floating bridge, so i'm a bit cautious about moving anything in case i make it worse.
Just need to be able to play better now, but at least i keep wanting to pick it up, so maybe things might progress a little quicker than before !!

Re: RG547

I came across this thread looking for info on my guitar. Just wanted to add to the thread. It's also an ash RG, but an RG548 in RBR or root beer red, which is really a brown with some red to it. This guitar is heavy. it's the heaviest guitar I own probably by a couple pounds. Guess I got a dense piece of ash. The neck had RG670 written on the back of the heel, even though its an RG548, and had a slight twist. Boo. I threw on another AANJ neck and it's my favorite guitar for the past few years. You can get a single coil like quack out humbuckers with the volume rolled back.
