lefty guitars: JEM 555L vs RG470L

Hi
After years with my beautiful S custom (based on the S470L but with ebony fingerboard, vine inlay, Lo Pro Edge, good PUs and painting), I would like to have an other different guitar. My first guitar was a RG 470L, not a bad guitar for a left-hand beginner...
So I thought about two ibanez models:
RG470L and JEM555
I don't know if the JEM555 is a good choice or if it is not better than a RG470L.
It is hard to be a lefty player in the Ibanez world.... I would be ready to pay a lot to have a JEM10...
:-(
