Ibanez Prestige RG1570 Review

This is the mega Ibanez Prestige RG1570 series guitar review. Although this is a Prestige model, it is similar in some ways to most RG models as they share some common parts such as a basswood body or IBZ Vintage V7 and V8 pickups.

The Ibanez Prestige RG1570 model sits mid way between the expensive Signature range i.e. the JEM or JS series and the economical RG Tremolo models such as the Ibanez RG370DX. The Ibanez Prestige RG1570 is built for pure shred and hard rock but is versatile enough to play anything from Jazz Fusion to Country Rock. The fast Ibanez Wizard Prestige neck and Edge Pro tremolo sets these axes apart from the standard RG budget models. The Ibanez Prestige RG1570 can be had for approx $999.
