Im considering buying 1 or both of the following:

RG1527
RG1550

They seem pretty good to me but if anyone knows of any problems with them tell me before I buy them. I play metal, punk/harcore and everything in between

I like the maple fretboard on the 1550 and I don't really need a 7 so I would get the 1550. What amp do you have

1550 is a great guitar that will serve well for for at least a few decades if you take care of it.

Good bridge, good neck, kinda meh pickups. But that seems to be the case with most OEM humbuckers these days.

Well one is a 6 string while another is a 7 string, also the 1527 is a H/H set up while the 1550 is a H/S/H. I think you'll be able to get away playing your music on the 1527 but you can't deny how sexy a maple fretboard looks. Actually screw it buy both.

My amp is just a crappy line 6 spider but im going to upgrade once I have purchased the new guitar(s).

Well we need yo know what amp you have because if you buy a good guitar with a bad amp your tones not gonna be much better


Edit: well I woulg split some of the money and get a good amp and a medium ranged priced guitar

Its not the tone Im interested in at the moment. I have a good les paul which is obviously a fixed bridge and I wanted something with a decent trem and also the 7 string so I have more options. Once I am am satisfied with my guitars I will find an amp that works well with all of them

I am worried about my tone but my amp at the moment is really good for heavy stuff. It just sucks for clean tone. It sounds like I may as well just get the seven string for now, but I have no idea about what amp to get

Not really...its not always about the tone. If you need something else, and your current guitar doesnt offer it, then its not fun to play. I'd pick an amazing guitar over an amazing amp any day of the week.

You've definitely got a point there. Everyone always says spend loads on an amp and only about 10% of your budget on a guitar. Well if you've got a mesa boogie and a squier strat it's still going to sound like shit and be boring as hell to play. If you're a bedroom rocker, you really only need a 300-600 dollar amp and then I'd spend everything else on guitars just for fun.

i love the new RG1550's. they look amazing. ESPECIALLY the blue model. i thought about replacing my RG570 with one, or just having two floating trem guitars. decided not to, but it's still one badass looking piece of quality japanese made guitar.

and, if you've never used a 7 string before i wouldn't invest that much into one. what if you find out you absolutely can't stand a 7 string? you should start with a cheaper 7 and move up to the RG1527 i think.
