IBANEZ RG570

So i'm lookin at a Rg570 for sale in my city, and it looks like its gonna go for cheap! Its got a big chip in the back but thats all, and really i dont care.

Just a few Q's, how are the factory pickups and trems on these things? As I want a guitar i can actually do some tremelo techniques with. And is this model a neck-thru or are the Wizard II necks just really thin bolt ons? I'm pretty sure they are bolt ons from pictures i have seen. And if anyone has played one: are they really nice for shredding up the high frets? How would it compare to a neck-thru?
Because I was looking at LTD's as another option, but seems where I live i would have to buy a new one, which means doubling what i would really like to spend

Thanks

That Armor Custom is .. kinda cool but at the same time freaking ugly and way too silly to consider playing seriously.

Fuck, you can get like 20 superb customs with that money and still have some left over for a kickass rig.

I've seen some guitars on the www made from some kind of metal, looked sort of rusty with holes in it, like cheddar cheese, but they looked so awesome. Looked like an old hunk of metal from a scrapyard that was falling apart, and had came in explorer and V shapes as well as others, but I forget the maker so I don't know how to find any pics.

IBANEZ 1527 Vs 7620

Hi!
Once you have saved my ass buying a cheap Cort viva 7 , I have this questuion:

I have this 2 options:

- New ibanez 1527
- LIke new ibanez 7620, but with the Blaze custom PU (bridge) and the Air norton 7 PU (neck), the electronics are changed too.


I think that the 7620 is better, but I donīt know what to do, because I canīt try anyone of this two. What do you think?

I'd say go with the 7620 because of the pickups and also its not that different from the 1527 from what ive seen. thats just my opinion, wait for others

You could get a copy of that guitar made for much, much less. You just need to find a good metal worker...

Whoever asked about the jackson JS series, please stay away. They barely stay in tune, action/setup is horrible, and the necks are clunky as all fuck.

hell the one-step-up RX10D models are way better. (at least the pre-fender ones are, which mine is...)

Um no, the JS30's are quite nice and have very thin necks. If you're talking about the JS30 Dinky with a Floyd, yeah that bridge is pure ass. So are the pickups, but setup? Who minds tweaking a few screws? A used JS30, after putting some money into it to get new tuners and pickups, is a great fucking guitar.

To be honest, mine is shite, complete shite, I really wouldn't bother, but maybe I was just unlucky and got a bad one.

Hi would you buy this ibanez (UV7BK)

http://es.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/jr.../ph//my_photos+

img0126, img127 and img128 are the ones I would like you to see.

For something abut 800 euros? I want to know if its a good deal or not. (I donīt know if Iīll sell it later). That is the reason not buying a RAN custom.
Thank you guys

What do you guys think of the Dean ML XT? Or the Z XT or V XT? (same line of 450$ Deans with a licensed Floyd):

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/prod...tric?sku=519815

Are they good guitars? How is the action on them? The biggest concern I have is the Floyd, I want a good one so I can experiment more with it. I'm selling my NJ Ironbird cause I got tired of the playing position...

I really like black ML's but also the see-through flamed-top ones, cause I'm a big fan of Vogg, Mauser, and Karl Sanders. :P But yeah I need to know if it has a thin neck and if the Floyd is good. Thanks.

Are ML's also very comfy to play on for fast tremolo picking and stuff? I guess so since it's a popular guitar shape amongst the bands that I like, but I'm just wondering if it's rather hard to get used to like some shapes.

Nice guitar? Im really tempted, im gonna try to talk them down to like $300 if they want to get rid of it. (remember price is NZ dollars, so they are asking about $200ish US for it)

I think its quite a good deal because its got a pup in it, but just want some feedback on how the Ibanez acoustics play
