ok, i've heard great things about both these guitars but i want to know which is better (price doesn't matter). i play mostly instrumental (Satriani, Vai) metal (Maiden, Avenged) and rock (Zeppelin, Clapton). what i'm looking for mostly is a fast neck, and i'd be replacing the pickups in the 1570 like this:

Bridge: X2N
Middle: Tone Zone S
Neck: Air Norton

so, what do you think would be better for my playing style and everything?

You mean schecter Hellraiser?

I would get the RG with a pickup swap it would cover all your styles.

Never judge Ibanez by their lower models

Never played a Hellraiser, but I hear that the neck is chuncky.

The RG1570 is an awsome guitar though.

^^the trem. on your Ibanez is crappy cause its a Edge Pro III ,The 1570 on the other hand has Edge Pro which is way better.

He? I'm not a he. Oh wait.... yes I am.... My bad....

And yes the Edge III is a piece of crap. Thats why I'm selling my RG350DX.

Judging by your style this is what I would recommend:

RG1570 of course, no questions asked.

Neck - Air Norton
Middle - Tone Zone S
Bridge - Breed Bridge

The air norton is suited for the neck position IMO...
Ibanez Prestige RG1570 ftw!

If you want a neck thinner than an RG1570, get a 2nd hand RG570.

Or 2006 Ibanez J-Custom RG8470F, RG8320.
