lol, I'm sorry if I'm being annoying with these "help me choose guitar threads". I narrowed my decision too 3 Ibanez Prestige models that I really like (yes more then the other guitars i was looking at), also that since they are very good quality (from what I read) and that the Edge Pro bridge is either the same as Floyd Rose or better (also from what I read)


Models are:
RG2570E (in silver)
RG2550E
RG1570 (in blue)

I probably will be changing the pups later down the road....

They are all in my price range..but since I live in Canada I will be buying in the states...

-Also, if whoever posts here owns one of these, they are welcome to post pics

All those models have the same:

-neck
-quality
-bridge

In other words: they're pretty equal.

If you like one of them, you're bound to like the other two. When deciding between these guitars, it's mainly looks. If you can afford it, I'd go for either the 2570 or the 2550, but it's up to you, really.

The 25XX guitars have some nice cosmetic touches and better pickups, but the 1570 is a fine guitar too.

If you're gonna upgrade the pickups, just get the 1570.

Just get the cheapest one, they're all pretty much the same.

+1, as long as you like the looks. other than that, agreed with bonsai...

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.

WOOHOOOO I made the decision I was waiting for . The silver stands out really nicely ...The pickguard on the black just doesnt look right for me (i looked at it more carefully) I prefer custom inlays more then dots on electrics.....and the pickups are better.....

I'll phone guitar center tomorrow and "sort things out" (I called them today, the guy said that he will call ibanez tomorrow to see if its on back order or anything....)

Normally, chains like Sam Ash or Guitar Center have most guitars like this in one of their stores and can have it shipped to a different shop in a few days.

Just ask them if they have one in stock anywhere in the country and whether they can get it to your local Guitar Center.
