7string S7420 2010 vs s5470 Prestige

Hello friends
Well, what do you think about it? I want to buy one of this beautys but im not sure which one. Its a lot of difference between them? I now that its difficult to compare this two because one is 7 string and the other not, but what do you think that have more advantages and which one you will buy is you stay in my situation and why?

I play any kind of styles but mostly i play prog metal and metalcore (much like dream theater, trivium, protest the hero. My favorite bands), i already have a 7 string guitar (a Dean Razorback 7) but i feel this so bulky and awkward and have a 6 string ibanez rg320dx that i love (of course its ibanez ).

Other thing is about the s5470. I really like the transparent black sunburst model but do you think that worth to pay 400$ more than the satin oil model for this?

Please help me to take a decision.

I'd get the 7 string model for one, you just get an extra string and if you're looking at saving money, with the 7 string saving your $400 it's a case of less is more. The 7 string gives you options of having the 7th string and not using it but when the time calls for it, you've got it. Plus if you're going to be saving some cash with buying the 7 string model, take that money and buy some nice pick-ups for it and you'll have the guitar you really want.

my .02 cents

Get the prestige. I have the S7320 (same guitar, just last years numbering), and while its great as is, its not a PATCH on my MIK prestige S series, and the S5470 is a cut above that since its MIJ.

You will REGRET getting the 7420 for the sake of the 7th string, its just NOT as good a guitar. If you already have a 7, then just learn to live with that one and use it when you really want that low B.

The Prestige is a better guitar. No if, end or butts.

But if you really want a 7 string...

GO for the oil. Gloss finishes are ick and you'll get more class-points for the natural wood finish.
