Re: whats the stigma on the rg570?

I for one love them.

Though i have always wondered why they sell so cheap everywhere i look compared to 550s.
It seems 550s sale for $450 - 600ish.
While the 570 has a huge gap of around $150 - 350.

What's your reasoning??? I'm lost (as usual). The 5xx series are arguably the best selling IBY's ever. Of course I'm speakin out of my ass on that, but I bet I'm close.

Re: whats the stigma on the rg570?

It's true. 550's seem to sell for a few hundred better than a 570. I had someone offer me $250 for my '01 RG570. I told him to go #[email protected]& himself. Meanwhile I sold an '06 RG350 for $200.
IMO, the RG570 and its cousin the RG1570 are some of the best instruments made! It's also the reason for the 570 in my moniker.

Re: whats the stigma on the rg570?

I was going by the market value. I see 570's sell for around 200 all the time... never ever see a 550 go for that!

Kinda my point, people seem to enjoy them, why are they so cheap? lol

thunderdong seemed to get where I was going

They just weren't as popular as the 550, so the resale isn't as good.

+1. They are every bit as good as the 550's, pretty much the same guitar but just seemed to always be overshadowed by them.

Re: whats the stigma on the rg570?

I love mine. But yeah, it was a bargain. For me though, I'm not a big pickguard fan, I prefer the solid body look and feel and I've always been more partial to rosewood fingerboards than maple. I only just recently got my first maple board guitar.

It's the pickguard and maple board. They make the guitar better in every way imaginable. There's simply no contest.

Re: whats the stigma on the rg570?

I love them. They are great workhorse guitars that have good parts and can be very versatile. I have a lot of my RG570's with different hardware/pickups/tunings, so not one of them is really the same.

Hell, I even have a maple board on one of them! Maybe I should call it an RG5570!
