Re: RGT42 vs RG1570... help me choose my next guitar :) [pic]
RGT42 vs RG1570- it souldn't be compared this way IMO as these 2 guitars offer different playability. the former has a finished neck, if you are not used to this kinda feel, then make an effort to try one first before you decide & not just by reading inputs here. also, the 1570 offers a single coil, if it's not within your needs, there are plenty other models to choose from.
before you invest in a bridge swap for your ILT bridge, be informed that the default cavity won't accomodate many other units, the Edge Pro included. best thing to do here is to sell off your current guitar.
the Dimarzio IBZ pickups are hits/ misses, they fare better in mahogany bodies IMO.
