Overview

This Ibanez S5521Q Prestige is an electric guitar that metal-minded guitarists will love. 24 frets and a 5-piece Super Wizard fast neck, Gotoh precision locking tuners, lower-profile designed Gibraltar Standard bridge, and an advanced tonal versatility give the S5521Q 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 V7 neck humbucker pickup, and V8 bridge humbucker pickup. V series humbuckers are hot, yet sharp enough to hear the pick bite the strings. If you need serious performance and style, an Ibanez S5521Q solidbody electric guitar is an excellent choice.

  • Mahogany body
  • 5-piece Super Wizard fast neck
  • 24 frets and Gotoh precision locking tuners
  • V7 neck and V8 bridge humbucker pickups
  • Gibraltar standard bridge
  • Includes hardshell case

    Comments about Ibanez Prestige S Series 6-String Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar:

    I just would like to say that this guitar has change the way I play. The feel of the neck, the weight of the guitar, the open-ness of the pickups, and the beauty of the wood all contribute to make this guitar great. I learned how to really use the volume knob after a few days with this guitar, the knob's placement is perfect. Palm muting creates so many over tones I just did not get from my other guitars, it makes my Marshall sing. The fit and finish are perfect, it is an Ibanez, "Prestige" series guitar, so they go the extra mile to make the fretboard feel slick, thin, fast, comfortable, and, it feels never ending. Reaching the 24th fret is no trouble. The locking tuners work great, the string through body with the solid adjustable bridge is just that, SOLID, bending and returning to pitch is excellent. The case it came in is SOLID too, maybe too heavy, and the addition of the small tool set is a nice touch. If you like the solid bridge, humbucker sound, and your guitar just does not sound right to you, before you go out and throw the dice on a set of pickups, check out the Ibanez "S" series guitars, plug it into a Marshall at the store, and really listen to it. When I did that, I thought to myself, this is what I want to sound like. You will not be disappointed.

    A truly unique guitar! LOVE IT!

    Comments about Ibanez Prestige S Series 6-String Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar:

    I happened to walk into the NYC GC the day after they first put this beauty on the floor. I was in the market for something lighter and leaner than my strat. I've never been an Ibanez fan. But after playing this wonder for half-an-hour, I was totally won over. The most distinct feature of this guitar is its ultra (and I mean ULTRA) slim profile, both neck and body. It's not only the thinnest, flattest neck you've ever played, it may be the thinnest, flattest neck ever. Some people might find it uncomfortably so, but my small hands found it very welcoming (while admittedly taking some getting used to -- It's a shock to go back and forth to my strat). Add jumbo frets and a silky smooth neck finish that's somewhere between gloss and satin and you have one FAST neck. The body is ridiculously slim, too. Arched top and scultped back narrows to less than an inch thick at the edges. But it's perfectly balanced and -- for me, anyway -- feels great in my hands. If you're the type that feels cheated unless they're holding a giant log of a guitar, then look elsewhere. The aesthetics of this guitar are absolutely gorgeous. Quilted maple top with a unique sunburst that Ibanez has dubbed "Wild Pilsner" (love that); matching headstock. White binding around the edges of body and neck set it off nicely. Offset dot markings on the fretboard are another step beyond the ordinary. Also, a cool, strat-like recessed jack on the top that is sculpted right into the mahogany body. Gold hardware is a nice finishing touch. A++ on the aesthetics. The only subtle nod to typical Ibanez extreme designs is its angular headstock. Like a lot of you, I always thought of Ibanez as a guitar strictly for shredders (which I'm not -- so I've avoided them). But this piece has a distinctly different vibe, equally at home in a country band or a blues club (IMHO) -- an idea underscored by the absence of a tremolo arm (fine w/me). If I could give half-stars, I might hold a fraction back for the electronics. Two humbuckers that the jury is still out on -- I may replace them some day; or maybe I just have to get used to them. But a nicely designed 5-position pickup switch gives you some interesting split-coil combinations. I was demo-ing this against a PRS that went for a third the price. Between the cost and my brand-snobbery, I really wanted the PRS to win, but in the end, I couldn't deny that this guitar was just amazing. A little pricey for many. But overall, an AMAZING guitar that I am LOVING playing. Kudos to ee-BAN-yez for thinking outside the box.
