What to pick?

Ok, so I got the idea of buying some RG550/RG570. But I have found this one: Ibanez Jem 7 DBK "Black Hardware" not much more expensive. Question - what to do?

I don't think the DBK has black hardware.

if not much more expensive, go with the jem.

I would go for the Jem as well, especially if it's specifically a 570 you were thinking about. If it were a 550, there are some factors that would sway me but they would have to be pretty specific. Otherwise, grab a pretty raw Jem at a pretty good price. How much, btw?

Well, in russian rubles it was 35000, but seems to be a little fake ad (cannot contact seller). The same one is available for 55000 rubles.

Nevertheless I took RG570 Neon Purple from 1993. Well, body is 570, I see on stamp that neck is 550. Which I think is not a big problem.

Don't worry about the neck stamp, my RG560 which I bought new in 93 also has the 550 stamp.
