    S2170
    • Pretty Top
    • Prestige Neck
    • Pretty Top
    • Hum Single Hum Config
    • Slightly Better Pickups
    • 3 Dots at 12th Fret

    S520EX
    • Flat Black
    • Hum Hum Config
    • Claw Mark Inlay

    Im sure the first one costs more than the other, though, so its all about the features you want and how much you're willing to spend.

    And why on earth you'd want a 6. :squint:

    2170 is a prestige model, whereas 520 is just standard series. never played the 2170, but the 520 is pretty good IMO. 2170 costs a lot more too. i'd personally get the 520 because it's more price-efficient and i don't mind the claw inlay that so many people hate. i hate the green finish and the black is pretty boring, but i personally don't mind it that much, even though a custom finish would be cool. i guess it all comes down to how much money u have and how much u value the slightly higher quality/unique finish

    Neither, get the new S7 when it comes out :yesway:

    If you're hooked on the 6, get the S520EX. I just don't care for the tops on the other two, not to mention they're all Korean made and the 520EX is half the price.

    You need to learn to use Google, because not only can it answer this question, but it can also provide you with the difference in specs between the two guitars in your first post.
