I've played a few of those, and I like them. I just don't like that color for an Ibanez model. I love the way the input looks though, cut straight into the body.

I has one in Moon-burst

Amazing.

The pickups are a little bit muddy, but that's the only downfall.

I've had one (Blue Moon finish) for a while now and I think it is a great guitar. The neck is easy to play on, the feel is first-rate and it sounds amazing. If you don't like the pickups, then by all means swap them out. But the playability, build quality, feel and looks are all outstanding. The ZR tremolo is a lot easier to live with than the average Floyd Rose or Floyd-ish copy. And if someone tells you that this guitar or its tremolo unit is not capable of playing at warp speed, consider the fact that Uber-Shredder Herman Li used the S-series as the basis for his EGEN Ibanez Signature model (he has the Edge Zero tremolo). This is a fine guitar that lends itself to just about any style of music you can think of. Play one and I think you'll like it. It is a lot of guitar for the money.

Exactly.

If you wanna look cool, put needles in your eyes and play.

The S470 is a great guitar, I wanted the DXQM but it was sold out so I got impatient and ordered the regular.

The quaility of the S470 is bob on, sounds great too, I assume this is the same for the DXQM.
