Add a GAP Pre-73mkii to What I Already Have?

I have an ISA one, Summit 2BA-221, and Joemeek 3Q. I've come across a GAP Pre-73mkii at a reasonable price, but having a tough deciding if it would have enough difference to its character to be worth adding it to what I have. I primarily record vocals and acoustic guitar. Of better mics I have are a KSM32, C214, AT4040, AT3035, and SM7b. I have found a few comments that the SM7b plays pretty nicely with the Pre-73.
Enough difference in what I have or no?

I think you should delve into the 54 compressor actually. How are your compressors? Pro VLA or RNC should be considered too.

I would get the GAP if its a good deal. They're pretty easy to sell if you decide to. It will saturate differently (Neve style) than what you have. Better or worse is subjective.
