    Ok, I need a practise workhorse guitar at a reasonable price.

    Since I love Wizard necks, I concluded that what I need is a 90's Ibanez
    model. Hmmm.

    I don't want any korean RG470 so I will look for an RG5something..

    But what is the difference between an RG550, an RG560 or an RG570?
    And how would you compare them to an RG1570 prestige?

    Thanks

    Mexican Strats

    My Mexican Strat is pretty good. A lot better than a Squier Strat.

    And if you are looking for an acoustic, Art and Lutherie is inexpensive, but pretty nicely built (as is Seagull, it's big brother).

        You can't go wrong with a 90's Ibanez RG5xx. They are all basically the same, just different pickup and routing combinations. For looks, I prefer the 550 (plus some had a sweet maple fretboard). Sound-wise, I prefer the 560 because I think a single coil in the neck is best. They have amazing necks, good hardware, awesome stock pickups. Go for it.

            There was one RG550 for sale at www.12fret.com, I was short of cash at the time and now it is sold. It had a maple neck. I'll search for something close to that. (BTW I hope that RG550 was bought by someone from this site because it was absolutely beautiful)

            Anyway thanks a million guys.
