the RG8570 is a J-Custom. It also has the flame maple binding which the RG3270 doesn't have

Plus, 8570 is a much larger number than 3270.

Yes it is a pukka J Custom so has the recessed controls, angled/recessed jack socket, the JC all access neck joint and strap locks as standard. It also has flame maple neck binding with abalone side markers, and a matching flame maple headstock. The back of the headstock even has a maple and bubinga veneer which looks very classy !!! The different pup combination is just a matter of personal taste. So for 50 or so extra you're getting a lot for your money I reckon !! I've said most of this in answer to one of your previous posts actually !!??
