Is this a good guitar?

I've been thinking of buying a new guitar, and this Ibanez S470DX looks pretty good.

Anyone here tried it, how is it like?

My first Ibanez guitar was an S540, very similar. The necks aren't as thin and the body's a little thicker. Mine has two singles and a humbucker. I have played these while trying out other equipment. I like them, but I haven't bought anymore S series guitars because I don't like where the S Prestige line has gone. I have a friend who has the purple 470. Heard good things about the tremolo from him and another who've played it.
