    Ibanez 1570 prestige 2005 vs Ibanez RG 548 1996. The 548 has a surface crack on the back of the neck but does not effect play. Also the 548 is going to run me more money ($50 or so). Both guitars are super clean, no cosmetic issues other then the neck on the 548. I'm leaning words the 1570...

    So a few months ago I shoved down everyone's throat the fact that I played Vai's guitars, and one of the things I was most surprised about was this- I liked the feel of FLO III better than the original FLO guitar. I realized it was because of the slightly scalloped fretboard. It felt so good...

    I have 2 guitars I want names for, but I don't have a name for then. I've had one for 2 years now, and my 1570 for a few months. The oldest one is a white rg with white sustainer, so it's a bit if a FLO look alike My other is a practically stock 1570 in black. I haven't been able to think of...

    I'm going to loose my shirt on this one but it must be done. Buy this, plug it in and then tell me how stupid I was to sell it. I guarantee it's not a dog. This is an Ibanez S5EX1 with a zebra wood top. It was a GC exclusive. I've basically taken the body and upgraded EVERYTHING. You won't...

    Hey, all. I'm doing a build and have all my components except a body. I've got an RG 350DXZ neck. If anyone has a 1570 (or comparable) body, I'd love to try and work something out.

    I've got a beautiful 1570/570 hybrid here. I love it but I have small hands and radial nerve issues so I'm getting a cramps and numbness in my left hand when I play it. I spend 98% of my time below the 12th fret and the smaller radius necks seem to alleviate the issues for me, mostly...

    Pretty pumped. I just picked this up last night. It's a spotless 1570 body and has a equally perfect 550 neck on it. I hope the excitement for this one does wear off as quickly as some others have...

    Hi everyones! Recently I fall back in shred stuff. I play songs from Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert all others prog' rock. As a primary blues, jazz and funk player, my rig is not so well adapt to it (A Telecaster and a Stratocaster (SSS)). So, i'm looking for a more well suited guitar...

    I've owned an Ibanez Prestige 1570 RG for close to 3 years now and haven't had any problems. Several months ago, I took it in to the local guitar shop to get an intonation adjustment and general set-up. Since then everything has seemed just fine, until about a week ago. I'm not too tech-savvy...

    This is in response to comment in a thread i had about my 1570 i picked up. I mentioned swapping out pickup magnets. I looked everywhere and couldnt find a how to so i just dove in. I am going to write up what i did to swap them out. I am far from a guitar expert, quite the opposite so this is...

    I'm working on an RG1570 and I'm finding that I would have to screw the trem studs beyond their functional limit to get reasonable action. I found that that I have to shim the neck quite a bit, more than I would've thought was reasonable. I am stacking two razor blades (the thick part) on top...

    Hi All, I've been using a Tone Zone, Area 58, PAF Joe Set up for a while, and recently changed the bridge to a Seymour Duncan Invader. Now I fancy changing up the other positions. What do you think of an Invader, Cruiser Bridge, Air Norton layout? Any suggestions for different pickups? The...

    Just something I've been wondering about. Are there any real differences between lower and high priced Prestige RGs? I've got an RG1570, and I love it, but I often see it described as the low end of the prestige line, and some people seem quite snobby about it. Surely the higher end guitars...
