New cheap beater guitar day. Spotted this thing in a local mom & pop shop a while back. Like 2 years ago back. Happened to stop in today for some strings and it was still there. Checked it out and they pretty much threw it in if I bought 2 packs of strings. Ok, not really but it was close. Not really sure if I'm gonna keep it or clean it up and slap in on craigslist . First thing, though, that horrible EMG is coming out of it. Got a set of high output Smits I might slap in and make it a shred machine in the meantime.
It's in pretty decent shape. Some surface scratches and a nick in the finish here and there but better than I remembered. The only real bummer part (other than the EMG) is whoever put the pickup in didn't know that you can get barrel jacks like Ibanez uses that work with EMGs. Oh well. Not gonna worry too much about it.
I have one very similar that I ended up chroming out.
Have a party with that thing, man. RG570's are excellent guitars.
