Overview

The cutting-edge of Ibanez design, the S series continues to be a marvel of form and function. Its signature body shape - sculpted, lightweight, and mahogany - is stronger and more musically responsive than guitars weighing twice as much. The S series is still a rock 'n' roll version of a quick, graceful, and potentially lethal weapon. This model S5427 has 7 strings and is crafted in Japan with a beautiful mahogany body and a finish that really shows off the natural wood grain. It features a 24-fret, Wizard-7 neck with a rosewood fingerboard and comes fully loaded with V77 and V87 pickups. A 5-way switch offers multiple coil combinations between the 2 pickups while the ZR-7 bridge has an incredibly smooth touch.

ZR-7 Bridge
The ZR tremolo with the ZPS successfully addresses the inherent drawbacks in traditional locking trem systems. Thanks to the unique ball-bearing mechanism, action and feel are incredibly smooth. The Zero Point System consistently returns the tremolo to the center position (zero point). This system offers ease of tuning, tuning stability and the ability to keep playing even after a string is broken.

ZPS (Zero Point System)
No friction points make the ZPS the smoothest Ibanez Back Stop ever. An additional outer pair of springs provides easier tuning and better tuning stability than the traditional floating tremolo-plus the other strings will remain in tune if a string breaks.

Switchable To Floating Trem
One of the best ZPS features, you just remove the stop bar and the ZPS easily changes to floating trem operation.

Manually Adjustable Spring System
Spring tension can be quickly set by thumb. There's no need for a hex wrench.

Exactly what I wanted

Comments about Ibanez Prestige S5427 Series 7-String Electric Guitar:

When the Ibanez S series came to my attention last year I was very interested yet I couldn't help but notice a few key things I wanted to be different, such as the middle pickups (don't want) and no seven string so I held off. Well, this is exactly the guitar I envisioned. A seven string version with no mid pickup and a natural finish. I have several black guitars and dont need another! The prestige series necks are the most perfectly playable necks I've ever touched, and the trem is smooth as butter. Once it is in tune it simply doesn't move. If you know the S prestige series then you already know all it has to offer. I also heard there was some sort of issue on previous versions of this (the s 5420 I believe?) with sustain at the 12th fret and higher, but rest easy there is no such issue on this one, at least not mine! My only concern is that they didn't just go ahead and put in dimarzios or emgs but I have those on order. The stock pups are actually pretty good but just not the same as what I wanted. They sound pretty good on high gain and are -fairly- good at articulating chords in clean mode but it takes a bit of tweaking to get them from sounding nasaly on lower strings or overbright at higher frets, among other things. Another minor gripe would be to have a metal cover where the cord plugs into the body, I'm thinking that will look a bit scratched up without it after a year of use. Other than that, this is my baby! I'm able to get rid of a few guitars now because this is the one.
