Help me decide between these two guitars.

I've got great offers on two Prestiges, and I can't make up my mind on which to get.

The first one is a 2002 S1520 in Figured Bubinga - H-H, Lo-Pro Edge, Wizard neck.



Looks just like this one. $675.

The second is a S2075 with Poplar Burl top - H-S-H, ZR trem with D-Tuna, Wizard II neck.



$600 with the original IBZ pickups, uninstalled.


Which one would you get? I really can't decide. I've heard that the old S Prestiges are better than the newer ones, but that ZR trem is pretty cool...I like H-H setups more than HSH, though. And both of them have nice finishes.

I'd go for the S1520 - Lo-pro, MIJ, and cool top

Re: Help me decide between these two guitars.

...wow, that's a lot of consensus.

Oh well. S1520 it is!

If anyone wants to buy the S2075, I can hook you up. Just ask.
