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.

your fretboard looks dry.

love platinum!

I don't think I've ever played anything in black walnut. It's a great ice cream flavor, so I assume it works well for a strat too.

The slugs in the pickups for telecasters are from old winchester rifles, which is why they sound so country.

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_postst80528_Useful-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!

already did and got her strung up and oiled the fretboard. god i hate changing tunings/different gauge on full floaters, i have been at it for probably 60 minutes total. sounds pretty nice. the v7 and v8 pickups are much better than i thought, plays nicely.

i am beginning to notice it is quite as 'nice' as the 2XXX and 3XXX, but i am more than happy with it.

I know what you mean. That's where ibanezrules and http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/Ibanez_Wiki come in handy!

Either way, even the 1xxxx prestiges are amazing instruments. For what I've paid for mine (close to what you paid for yours), it's definitely a great deal. Enjoy!

looks like an edge pro, but i'd need a close-up to be sure.

does it have the wee saddle inserts? if it does, i'd assume it's an edge pro.

My RGR1570 definitely has an Edge Pro. Pretty sure that is what you have.

I love my 1570.

just checked it out and it is an edge pro as you said. thanks. i haven't really been overly agressive with the trem because i don't know where to get a trem arm, and this one doesn't have it.

that link to the ibanez thread forum is amazing. tons of diagrams and picks so big for whoever found it. here is the link if you didn't catch it further up in the thread http://forum.ibanez.com/yaf_postst80528_Useful-Diagrams.aspx

thanks for the link. i just get one off of ebay. i had to buy a different guitar's trem arm (another prestige) and it took three months. that was through GC. so i am not really sure what to do.
