Well the only cons is that it might not be a full preference to your style, and also its pretty expensive. I bet that you'll get it at Bentley Music and i think they charge RM3000++ for one of those babies. Test it out as much and as long as you can, feel it and enjoy it. You may or may not like the neck and the bridge but overall, its very good.

EDIT: For pup, i suggest that you go ask Bentley coz i dont think they supply DiMarzios, and DiMarzios eventually goes pretty well with Ibanez.

Once I get my RG [H/S/H] I plan on putting a BK Miracle Man in the bridge, Uber Trilogy in the middle, and Cold Swear in the neck . But that's just me...

What types of music do you play?

Nothing will seperate me from my '89 Desert Yellow RG550, same age as me!

However, I've found all Ibanez RG Prestige series guitars to be very good, especially for metal and shred. I've got a set of EMGs in my RG, 81-S-85 config. Personal preference really. You may like the stock pups, depending on how they sound through your amp and with your fx board.

I'm a Vai fan so I was thinking DiMarzio Evos, I know a shop that retails DiMarzio here, and the RG will cost me RM3550 btw...kinda blowing all my money on it, so I wanna make sure its good. I'm having it ordered in...

Btw, there's Yamaha Music in Ampang that sells EVO for RM500. Very expensive IMO, if you want cheaper, ask someone to order for you frm the US and ship it here.

I think I'll stick with the stock pups for a while ...if youre looking at my sig and gasping at the MG then don't, I gig through this massive Kustom tube amp that even makes my Gio Ibanez sound wicked. I can't wait to run my RG through it... Thanks for the replies...and I was wondering if anyone wants to recommend separate pups for Bridge, Neck and Center for increased versatility...anyone? I'll consider the Evos...

ok i'm not much of an ibanez fan so here is my pros and cons of the rg1570

Pros
Fast thin neck if you're into that kinda thing
Nice Trem
Comfortable Body Shape
High Build Quality
Easy Access Neck joint

Cons
Lack Lustre Stock Pickups for the price
A dull natural tone imo due to lack of wood but high output pickups can sort that out
Trems not for everyone especially those who change tunings regulary,
Tunes, gear and other random stuff can be found in my "UG" profile if you click my name

it's a great guitar, but the pickups aren't great. and you need to like basswood. and thin necks.

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.

How light is Basswood exactly? Thin necks are great! I have really long and skinny fingers so it'll help me be very agile on the fretboard...

the %#$@ed up shop i go to ( most decent shop), keeps the 1570 upstairs in the storage room and don't display it. had to ask about models by name!

conversation:

me: s470dxqm?
salesman: yes, 2200!
me: s470? (displayed)
salesman: yes, 1900
me: rg1570?
salesman: YES, 2700!!!

Shouldn't you weigh the pros and cons *before* you decide to buy the guitar?

to me is the locking nuts. the really bad con, especially the one where it locks down the b and #e strings. It kills my #e real quick like in seconds since underneatht he locking nut is somewho a big dent/scratch going downwards and somewho kills my high e string. New locking nuts will solve the problem for no immediate-break of my beautiful high e string?

Stock Pups suck ass...

Anyways pros:
Color
Thin Neck
Edge pro (depends on ppl who like them or not) Floyd rose
Light Body
high quality for only 700-999$
All access neck (feels like a neckthrough)
