RG8570 vs RG8270

So I've been yearning for a JC for a while, and have finally narrowed it down to these two. Could someone please sway me towards one over the other? I know I pretty much can't go wrong with either, but I'd still like some sort of feedback on them!

Also the 8270 I'm looking at has vine inlays while the 8570 does not, it doesn't really bother me, but I feel like it MAY be something one would eventually get sick of.

Help me

Re: RG8570 vs RG8270

I'd guess it's 04 RG8570 model you are talking about? vs '05 RG 8270 ?

both have same Edge pro, and DMZ TZ-BV-AN combination.

If you feel vine is better looking , go for 8270.
If you feel offset dot is not a problem, and matching headstock looks cooler, go for the 8570.

Re: RG8570 vs RG8270

Will you have the opportunity to try both guitars out??
Have you owned an Ibanez with the vine inlay before?

Didn't the RG8570 have a thicker neck than most J-customs, more Fender-like? If you close your eyes and forget the inlays, I think that will be the main difference between the two.
