Question S-5470 vs s-970cw HELP!

Hi! I am planning on buying my first ibanez, and I want one with high quality. I already own a Gibson SG, but I also play alot of heavy, and I wanted something with a floyd rose kind of bridge. The music I play is mostly Metallica, Iron Maiden, Steve Vai, and such, but I also want to be able to play clean, and low gain. Obviously the s5470 is more expensive, but I have troubles finding differences in the two (from what I have seen and heard on YouTube). Does anyone have experience with any of the two?
Thanks in advance

Japanese S5470 is the only choice,a real Ibanez.....the other is just a cheap version made in Indonesia.
Both are pretty,one is a workhorse and one is a pro instrument.
