Hello,
I have previously owned an Ibanez RG1570, and it had a case that said Prestige on it. Now I want one again, and I found one I like, the problem is, the case looks... Not prestige. Its got blue padding, and doesn't say prestige on it.
Can someone help me, did they ever sell this type of case with these guitars, because if not, I feel like it would drop the original value from it.

The case I`m talking about is just like this, and it's got blue padding:

Whereas mine was like this:

Thanks in advance.

do you know what year the 1570 is from? my ibanez prestige case looks like the first one, and i got it new (more like new old stock, it's a 2003 model) from a shop, so I'm guessing it's legit.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

No, the seller didn't specify it, and I cant see the SN. But, I have found another one from 2003, with case just like that. I guess it's legit, thank you very much!
Is 750E too much for 2003 model with JB/Jazz combo? 10/10 condition, as he says.

^ no problem

I'm not too well up on used prices, and less well up on used prices in serbia, lol. that does sound like quite a bit, but

The M100C is a regular Ibanez case, it doesn't come with any guitars. It's not a Prestige case.

Yeah, have no idea what your used market is like, but 750E sounds pretty high. I've found dead mint 1570's for $550 here in Atlantic Canada. A 2570 (9.5/10) for $500 and a dinged up 2550e for just little over $400 as well.

Kinda bump, but got some info on this. I checked the serial, its from 05. Plus 5 piece neck. Now, its strange that he would have that case, since it definitely should come with an original prestige case. Do you guys think this is a deal breaker? Should I be considering this, or should I ask for a lower price? He offered to drop to 700E btw, and prices are crap here, yes.

I just recently sold a 2002 mint 1570 for $500. Great guitar. It came with a ibanez m100 case and not the the prestige case. All of the 2002 1570 came with it, also didn't have the stripes on back of the neck or say team j craft on the back of headstock. They started with all that in 2003. I would think a 05 would have the prestige case, but I would rather have the m100 if that is the case it comes with. It is a much nicer case than the prestige. Several post at ibanez forums talk about just that. I wouldn't let a case be a deal breaker thought either way. Won't hurt resale.

My 1570 came with the Prestige case. It's a 2007 RGR1570 though.

Google image search for 2005 RG1570 shows all of them in a prestige case.
