hey guys. i have always been a huge fan of protest the hero, and i slowly want to start playing their kind of music, and i read somewhere that he used s470, but i hate the colors that it comes in, and i dont know why, but its pretty cheap. but the s5470 has a sick transparent sunburst, and seems to be at a reasonable price lol. so i was wondering if i could get that, and replace the pickups with like dimarzio evo's.

they are made in japan. they have better craftsmanship than other ibanez guitars. better wood is used in those guitars.

Woot?! From the name I though it was just another upgrade from the S470 line. New ZR2 bridge eh? How much better is it compare to the last one anyway?

From what I can see the only difference between the ZR and the ZR2 is that the ZR2 has a snap-in tremolo arm where the ZR's is a screw-in.

Well fli.pansy, you're like me... I really like Protest The Hero and I'd like to buy the S5470. But you want to replace the pickups by Dimarzio Evo's. It's not the best thing you could do because you'll loose all that clear sound that Luke plays.

In my opinion, you're better to leave things like they are. I know Dimarzio are the best pickups but you'll pay the guitar + the pickups. If you have 3000 budget lets go but if not, think about my advice
