I finally saved up enough money for a new guitar and so I went to a small local guitar shop to try out the RG1570/2550/2570 or other guitars around that price range. Turns out they don't have any of those 3 in stock but had the jackson sl-3 soloist. I absolutely loved how this guitar felt/sounded but I didn't like where the volume knob was located. The salesman offered to sell the sl3 to me for $850! Should I get the sl3 or the ibanez? I haven't tried the ibanez yet but compared to the prices online, it sounds like a steal
well play the ibanez(s) in other stores and pick yourself man. and the rg2570 and 2550 are essentially the same minus a pickguard.
