hello guys!

I played acoustic guitar for quite a long time and started playing electric guitar some time ago.

I`ve been using my friends squier for some and even jammed with friends, but lately I`ve been thinking of upgrading to a better guitar. I figured out I want something with humbuckers. Now I went to my local guitar dealer and the only ones I tried within my budget and liked is the Ibanez rg1570 and gibson sg special faded(worn cherry). Both around the 700 euros. Both felt differently but both good. I liked the rg neck but the sg felt more solid. Can someone give me adivce? Right now my choice is leanning towards the sg

The RG1570. Hands down the better guitar out of the two.

In all honesty, the Faded SG isn't good. At all.

The RG1570 on the other hand is a quality instrument.


You might have to adjust to having a floating bridge, but if you read the manual/look online/use common sence, you should be fine.

Rg1570

Wait!? Do you even have a amp picked out yet?


If you haven't, go for something like a Roland Cube or a Vox of some sort; they're pretty cheap and they should last you a while.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!

The RG is better but if you're aching for an SG save up for a standard.

Hey guys Im back again.

Well about the amp, I have a roland cube 60

As you guys advised I actually made mind of buying the rg1570, so I went to the store again but actually had some time and had my eyes on the fender tele 72 dlx(the one with 2 humbuckers). I test it out a bit and liked it. So I'm back here again without making a choice >_<.

Oh btw I forgot to mention but I mostly play rock and punk

RG1570 for me.
SG's are nice though.

Don't get a tele! I hate them but that's just my opinion.
Gear:
- Yamaha RGX121D in black
- Schecter C1 in white
- Marshall Valvestate 8080
- Roland Cube 20x
- Zoom G1X
- Guitar Rig 3 (for practicing )

well thing with the rg1570 is...eventhough everyone recommended it to me, and I don't dislike the sound or anything, it just feels too light or small, I rather be playing on something more heavy and bulky

I'd go with the Ibanez. Far more versatile and its actually a great guitar. You'd probably be more comfortable with the SG. The neck on that is the one that is gonna be most like an acoustic so that will feel good and natural to you.

Up to you though.

Better amp first.


the guy doesn't even own his own electric, and the one he's using is a Squier, plus he has a roland cude, so he needs to get a guitar first.

Heavy and bulky might seem manly now, but you'll regret it in 20 years when you have to go to the chiropractor every day.

Heavy guitars are NOT fun in live situations when you have an hour set and the strap is digging in to your shoulder.

If you really want an SG, get a Standard. The Sg Faded Special is crap, terrible guitar. Even a higher end Epiphone would be better than that.

I'd go for the RG out of the two.
