NGD Prestige day mk2

so the last one wasn't right (shitty bridge retrofitting and flat out deception on GC"s side.

but i tried again. all i was out was the postage and shipping ($15)

so for about $520 here she is:






Ibanez 1570 Prestige in stunning Platinum.

its a great feeling guitar. everything is top notch as far as quality goes on the j-crafts, really nice frets, nice tightly fit neck perfectly fitted neck. great workmanship. sounds pretty good. those V7 ad V8 pickups aren't as bad as i thought they would be. they will still get replaced however.


just a nice guitar. however i am NOT happy with guitar center's used site at all

this one is missing a trem arm, and i have the feeling i probably will have to buy one off of ibanez rules or something, as nobody claims to be responsible for the guitars for any reason.

the family:


others are a 3550MZ and a 2570EVSL.

which trem is this one?

thanks everybody! its defiantly a nice guitar and i am still deciding what tuning i am going to use. i am thining C#std/drop B, but don't know how it would feel that low with 11's.

gregs: yea i am going to oil it a little bit.

ippon. i have two GIbson LP's, two GIbson SG's two 1982 Sonexs and a Gibson V. none overly nice or extravigant, i like what i have though. two wolfgangs as well. so i am pretty well rounded. i will pick up a tele when i find the right one. i know i have owned at least five teles. just havn't settled down with one. i went through ten strats over a few years and the one i kept was a $175 1995 MIM. did better than any one the other ones, although i only had two MIA's in there.

also i don't really like breaking a grand on a guitar, and only buy used guitars. thats just me.

i need one more RG Prestige after this and i will be set on ibanez's. i really don't like changing tunings on full floater.

Nice axe! I have my RGA121 in C standard with skinny top heavy bottoms and I find everything tooooo loose. Probably will switch to 12s for it.

thanks!

can anybody identify which ibanez trem it is. i am not having the best luck searching (which i am usually good at). and is it one a good one? if it makes a difference the strings go through the bottom of the bridge. one of my other guitars does similar but looks different.

also i need the type so i know which trem arm i need.

Looks like the Edge Pro 2 to me, althought I can't get a good look at it from your pic.

Do a Google image search and compare.

Wait, rg1550? Didn't those all have a pickguard? Looks like a 2003/4 RG1570 GN. And that should be the Edge Pro bridge. Or that's what should be in there. Check out http://forum.ibanez.com/yaf_postst8...l-Diagrams.aspx to see the differences. Obviously the easiest way to tell between the prestige edge pro and the non prestige edge pro 2 is at the saddles.

honestly i probably said the wrong one. i frequently get messed up with ibanez's model numbers. i know i have a 3XXX series model, that has a pickguard, and a 2XXX and that one doesn't but this one is the same as the 2XXX model.

their model numbers are too confusing... i just play the damn things .

At least the guitar made it.


I will be pissed if the box didn't make it. The stuff is cheap but that's not the point.


Anyway- oil that fretboard and shred the shit out of it!
