Depends on if you like a pickguard or not, that's the main difference except that some 550s have maple fretboards. Same basic guitar.

except for fret-size and the pickups, i never found any difference in quality between RG5xxs and Jem7s, go figure between RG5xxs and 555s...

I'd go with the 570 w/ Evo's.

I absolutely hate the Lo TRS 2 bridge...

I've had good luck with my RG 550 w/ Evo's.
In fact it saw more stage time than my Jem 777 w/ PAF PRO's....

The JEM555 is Korean with a TRS. Junk(the TRS).

The RG570 is going to have an Edge trem on it. Go for the 570 undoubtedly. Trust me on this, it's not worth the hassle to get a TRS crippled guitar for more money than a guitar with an Edge. If the pickguard means that much to you ,get it, but unless you're rich, you'll probably regret it.

He can get a 550 really cheap too if he wants a pickguard.

I had a Jem 555 and whilst it was a great sounding guitar there were a number of quibbles with it - mainly the trem (as previously stated) but there were also a couple of things like poor paint job and pickguard lifting up at the edges near the horn. I'd go with the 570 personally. HTH.
