Hey guys! So I went for a drive today and got myself a new (second hand) guitar.
You can check the pictures out at the link here, I think it's easier than embedding them.
The RG1570

I got it for an absolute steal because the guy needed the cash to pay for another guitar he had coming. I felt bad, but at the same time he was upgrading so I don't think he was too worried. The trade went smoothly.

Anyway onto the instrument! Right out of the case it plays pretty sweet. I'll probably get a set up done on it just to get things perfect because the action was a little high towards the higher frets. It's also missing the trem arm. Condition is very good, but has a few dings here and there. Not something that bothers me personally though

THE FRETS LIGHT UP. +5 points

It sounds great. I can't speak for the stock pickups as they are not installed. Instead it came with a bunch of seymour duncans . got a JB, Classic Stack and Pearly Gates. They all sound very different to eachother, but very good. Between the volume knob and the 5 way selector I was able to get a huge range of tones out of my JCA50H. Nice cleans, Nice heavy tones, and everything in between. Very responsive and very versatile all round.

Neck is super thin. I like it, but it's a bit of a change from my old main guitar which was a Schecter Hellraiser C1. I'm going to get the schecter set up for some sort of drop tuning now (still deciding), and have the Ibanez as my main axe. I think this new guitar is going to perfectly complement the Schecter giving me a wide range of tones.

It's a good instrument guys and girls, be happy for me please.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Thanks guys. It only set me back $650 AUD in the end. Pretty awesome bargain considering the pickups, hard case and Australian pricing if you ask me!
