Re: Thinking of getting the RG2570. How good is it?
I just got mine about a week ago, I was torn between choosing a Jackson
Sl3 and the RG2570EXL, in the end i chose the Ibanez, and Im glad I did.
Its really a fantastic guitar, the action is perfect, the bridge flawless and
the neck is probably the best thing on the guitar, very playable and fast
all the way up to the 24th fret which i use quite a bit since Im mostly into
Heavy and Thrash metal.
I also have really big hands, and I thought that my hands would cramp on
the neck like they used to on my old Jackson. I dont know why, maybe because the back of the neck is so rounded, but after hours of playing
my hand still felt great. No cramps at all.
My only possible gripe with the guitar is that the Dimarzio Single buzzes
quite a bit, but once you start playing the tone is great and the buzzing
isnt noticable. (Note my electrical instalations could have something to
do with this)
Id recommend this guitar to anyone with hard rock/metal preferences, even
though the clean sound is very sweet. As regards to sound I would compare
it to a Gibson LP. With maybe slightly brighter sounds which I like.
