S5470 I found for sale: should I buy? Good deal?
I'm new to the forums here. I am in the market for a Prestige S5470. I've never played one and Guitar Center says they don't have one anywhere in the Midwest and would require me special ordering one through them to try one out. Well, I found a S5470 for sale from a reputable source: 2 months old (built in 2010 based on serial #), Viking Red color, pickups replaced with Evolutions and a Air Norton for the single coil, and a strap lock added. Supposed to be in close to brand new condition. I could get it for $1250 shipped. Is this a good deal, or is that high for this guitar in a used condition? I don't have much experience with owning high end guitars, I currently have a midrange Jackson Kelly and a '74 Les Paul Custom. I've pretty much settled on the Prestige S5470 or SV5470 (that's another debate....AWW!...any help on making up my mind there would be helpful too!). I play a lot of different types of music, but mainly enjoy playing instrumental guitar music and progressive metal. Anyways, these forums seem like they'll be a big help and I appreciate any information you all can share with me.
