RG550, 570 etc.?

Hey guys,

Just wondering, how are the stockers (pickups) on the 550 (or 570), and is 500 a reasonable price for them? There seem to be a ton (at least one at a time) up here in Canada on the used market, and around 500 for a guitar with a killer trem and that looks badass is good in my books.

Also, is there anything I should look out for with these? Like I heard that the ones from a certain year tended to have neck warps. I would assume these are faked as well.

Anyway, thanks.

Use the search button--tons of threads on these from finishes, pickups, feel, build, etc. Plus, go to the review section--tons of reviews on these. I just did a few myself.
