Hello,
I am buying a guitar soon and I can't choose between Ibanez S420 and Ibanez S520.
Basically, the difference is in pickups and bridge system.

S420 uses two Infinity (1/2) humbackers and has ZR tremolo.
S520 uses two Quantum humbackers with Edge Zero II tremolo.

Kinda searched on forums and what I found out is people are saying that Quantums are a bit better then the Infinity ones, but I also discovered that they think that S420 has a safer tremolo, which I mean will be the main thing that will help me decide.

Thank you in advance

Get the S420. Pickups can always be upgraded. Bridges not necessarily.

Yeah. To be fair though the Edge Zero II definitely seems like a decent bridge, but I'd still get the S420 because I've tried the ZR before and I liked it.

So you would all say that ZR is safer (the S420 bridge) and that Quantums are better (S520 pickups)?
I'm not very experienced when it comes to electric guitars, but I've tried S420, my bandmate has it and he speaks fondly of it, although I have to addmit that the black neck colour of S520 looks a bit more attractive.
