The pinnacle of shred science.

This Ibanez S5470 Prestige is the electric guitar other metal-minded guitars will be judged against. 24 frets of wicked fast neck, ZR2 bridge with ZPS3 spring system, and an advanced tonal versatility give the S5470 guitar an edge over most guitars in its class.

Heavy mahogany tone without the heavy mahogany weight. Thin around the edges for comfort, fat around the pickups and bridge for tone. S Prestige model features HGD1 Hot Grinder neck humbucker pickup, ST1 Short Tracer mid single-coil pickup, and HGD2 Hot Grinder bridge humbucker pickup. The Hot Grinder humbuckers are hot, yet sharp enough to hear the pick bite the strings. The Short Tracer has a strong magnet that provides full output in low profile setting.

5-piece neck with Prestige finishing for increased playing comfort, Gotoh precision tuning machines and deluxe Prestige case. Made in Japan by Ibanez's best craftsmen.

The ZR2 (Zero Resistance) bridge with the ZPS3 spring system returns you to "zero" — center point — after each use of the tremolo arm, even in the case of string breakage! No more wondering if you're back in tune or worse, knowing you're not! One more way to provide more dive-bombing freedom with less hassle.

  • Just... perfect.

    As reviewed by T.O.R on 5/26/2011

    I never thought I'd get this guitar. For one it was over my $1,000 budget. I also didn't like the idea of having a tremolo that wasn't Floyd Rose. Anyway, I played it a couple of times at GC and I fell in love with it. I now own it and oh my, Ibanez makes very nice things. It is very slim both in the body and neck, allowing for precision when you shred. The ZR Tremolo is amazing. It stays in tune more than any FR original tremolo that I've played with. I'm usually tuned to C Standard and I abuse it a lot. Perfect tuning afterwards. The pickups are general Ibanez pickups. Not the best, but pretty good. I'll switch them out soon though. Regardless, the 5 switch allows for a multitude of tones. Great for things from jazz to some trashy metal. This is an all round versatile guitar. I have a feeling I won't buy a guitar for a long, long time.

  • Almost Perfect

    As reviewed by Andy Soles on 1/28/2013

    Recently purchased S5470 transparent black sunburst. Right out of the box awesome appearance, great custom hard case, nice tool set (all in one), great wood grain finish. Wizard HP neck is awesome (super, super thin) and just demands the need for speed. Solid body design is super thin, couldn't ask for more. Intonation was right on, right out of the box, after initial tuning, all 24-frets right on. Issue --> Strings have some sort of back residue on them?? It got all over my fingers (blck color), had to wash off with soap. This thin coating of black film was all over the strings, all the way up the neck. I'm in process of getting a new replacement set. I figure putting on a new set will be easier than returing the whole guitar. Everythingelse was super clean. Over-all, this realy is an awesone guitar.

  • attention to detail

    As reviewed by Mark Shepard on 8/23/2012

    I dont often write reviews, but I have had my S5470 for about 8 months now and I have no regrets. The finish is smooth and allows the grain to show through nicely. The neck is VERY nice and I find myself playing a lot, I cant put it down. The case is a little cheezy, the glue was squished out in some areas, but it does its job of protecting the guitar. The multi tool that is included is very handy, but the cheap plastic pouch that it came in was ripped at the top seam. The people that made the guitar did not make the awesome job on the guitar! The case would get 2 stars. It stays in tune, easy to adjust intonation and action, and comfortable to play...Thank You Ibanez
