Which one SZ520 heartbeat or SZ520 QM amber


First I was looking for a LTD 400 or a schecter but
after a few weeks of trying several guitars, i decided to go for the Ibanez Sz520, price is the same

There are now 2 options:

-SZ 520 amber QM with gigbag

-And SZ 520 transparant Black with heartbeat inlay.

Questions: is that a special edition with the heartbeat, i only find the SZ520 with the flame(12 fret)

I can buy the SZ with the Duncan Ibanez pickups (both) or with a GFS Chrunchy pat at the bridge and the Duncan /Ibanez in the neck. The seller don t mind if he has to change them but I can t get them both.

Which would you buy with what pickups

Hope for your opinion,

best regards

The SZ came with both inalys the heartbeat one was a slightly later model before production went to Indonesia, pickup choice is up to you really I think the GFS's are good pickups but you may want somehting better from duncan or dimarzio...

I think the trans black is an awesome finish...
