What's the 6 string equivalent to an RG1527?

I love my rg1527 and would love to get a 6 string similar to it.

In the current lineup probably the 620, i think thats the only bolt on with 2 humbuckers and no extras like peizo etc.

Alot of people i've met dont show too much affection to the paintjob on the 620 tho, personally i think its cool

The "cubed" finish? It's bloody terrible! It's like a Linda Barker sponged paint effect.

The ice cube finish reminds me of arts and crafts from the 80's.
I would get an RG1570. You get an extra pickup in the single coil but whatever.

How about the RGT320q? How much different are the necks?

The RG1570 is the best choice in opinion in terms of it being the closest. And they're solid as a rock and reliable too. So I put in another vote for that.

^^ Ye. I'd go for that.

Metallic00: The RG320Q has a Wizard II neck, yes? If so, it's a bit thicker and chunkier all round. Not a bad profile, but I prefer the original Wizard. Just a matter of preference, really. One thing you can almost guarantee is the quality of the fretwork will be higher on the Japanese/Wizard Original neck.
