S470QSTR - worth the money?

i played on an S series once in a guitar store up in Fort Wayne, IN, and the guy said it was an S470. *i checked the ibanez website, and it was the S470QSTR. *

i almost blew a load through my pants when i played on it. *i hear its about $700 new? *

is it worth the money? *

take it easy,

Sounds high to me...I'd go for a used S540 to get an Edge or Lo-Pro trem.

Sounds high to me too.You should be able to find a used S540 for a bit less and in my humble opinion the necks are a lot better.Good luck!

Pickups are better in the 540, too.

The 470QS is WAY overpriced, seeing as how it's made in Korea and has a TRS trem. Get a S520 or a used 540, as already mentioned.
