I have a few questions:

1) Does this weigh heavier than a strat?

2) Is the neck thinner than a strat?

3) Can it handle down tuning to B? (and would it sound muddy with the stock pickups?)

1) this is lighter than a strat... it is VERY light.

2) ummm if you go to the respective company websites they usually have the radius of the necks, if i remember correctly when i played it at a local store it was pretty thin and probably thinner than a strat, although the width is larger i would believe.

3) yes it would be able to handle B if you got it set up for that... as for the pickups im not sure because i didn't get a good enough test with them.

the guitar is about the same as a strat. The neck is thinner then a strat. Are you planing on using multiple tunings?

Initially I'll use it in standard to get a feel for it, but I plan on doing a project that will involve B tuning, so it will probably be left in B for months.

The guitar is very thin and light. I played it at guitar center and it felt like a toy, and I'm not a big guy. The stock pickups weren't terrible, but weren't the best either. I wouldn't know how it would handle B tuning, but it should be able to handle it.

Why not the S7320? It doesn't take long to get used to a 7 string, plus you can play in B and E easily.

You have a point that it would save me resetting up the guitar to B and E. Though the S520's thin neck with inlay looks much better. I'll have to think about it.

yeah i agree that the 6 string looks nicer... in my opinion as long as you set up your guitar for drop b by a guitar tech then you wont have to worry, lots of pro bands use ibanez guitars for a wide array of drop tunings so i wouldn't imagine one of their guitars not being able to handle drop b.... especially the S series... if you're concerned just ask the guitar tech at a dealer in your area and im sure they'd say 'yeah that would work fine'

Go for the S seven string, unless its a big price difference, the looks should be the different in your choice.
It would save trouble with tuning hassle.

But the 6 is by no means a bad choice, if you get it set up right.

Well, it's 100 dollars more, but to me it's worth it. It will save you ALOT of hassle imo.

It's $250 more over here. I reckon I'll still go with the six string S520EX. It looks much nicer, and saves me $250 for other gear.
