RG2820 vs S5470

Which do you think is better?

Both are priced similar.

I am looking for a comfortable and nice sounding Ibanez.

Re: RG2820 vs S5470

I would go for the RG2820 simply because I prefer RG models and it's also a limited edition. I also prefer the direct mounted pickups of the RG

On the other hand the S5470 has a thinner body profile, a different kind of tremolo (have never used it) and a 5 way toggle switch if you rather have that. I remember at some point some people were complaining that the S5470 had a sustain issue... maybe you should check it out and whether it affects you

I'll go for the RG2820, the pickups and the guitar are just perfect for my needs.

Re: RG2820 vs S5470

I own an RG3570Z and an S5470Q and would (personally) say the S-series has marginally better sounding pickups, and a much more solid feel to it. I also prefer the more linear feel of the ZR trem to the Edge Zero but that's just personal choice and I know most people prefer the Edge Zero.
