S570 vs S970

I'm trying to decide whether it is worth the couple hundred extra bucks for the S970 over the S570. The quantifiable major differences seem to be the pickups, the ZR2 vs ZR and ZPS2vs ZPS3. I like the finish on either option. Opinions?

Re: S570 vs S970

Well, you should get whatever seems the best to you mate. What I know is that I bought a S670 and changed the pickups as the ones that come with the Saber currently are a bit muddy. As far as I know, both bridges work great. That said, I would look into buy an used older Saber from the 90s. They are better constructed, the pickups are better and the Bridges were better as well. Plus you should be able to buy them cheaper than a S970. Maybe not as cheap as a S570, depending on the model.
