Does anyone know the real difference between the Ibanez RG 550 and RG 1570?

I am thinking of buying one!

I think the 1570 is an older, discontinued model from the "Prestige" series, whereas the 550 was relaunched a couple of years ago - both are from the Japanese factory which makes the higher-end Ibanez guitars so in terms of spec and quality they are very similar.

I own an RG655 Prestige from 2017 which is in the same "family" and it's my No. 1 for gigs. A dream to play. :)

thanks matt, traded in my old Vester and went for the 1570. I am shredtastic happy about it. Really high quality guitar, Most forums said the 1570 was better than the 550.
