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.

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.
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 case...an 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
this guitar is great i cant lie but theres so many guitars that are nice for half price.its truely is a stunning guitar with great playability but its just to darn expensive and not worth 1,799.99. ive p[layed for years and i love ibanez but id rather play my schecters and jacksons over this and there about a third to half the price (damien elite fr jackson dkmg custom].thias guitar is good but not worth spending all the money
This locking tremolo system is the best I've ever seen. Other locking tremolo systems that use ball bearings like these such as Kahlers apparently have to be lubricated to function right, knife edges wear down faster, and titanium knife edges are more expensive. The parts of this locking tremolo system are positioned in a way that the strings are more equally leveled with the whole fretboard. Unlike how on most guitars I've used, the distance between the strings and the fretboard are way different at the bottom of the fretboard than at the top of the fretboard. The reason I only gave this 4 stars is because I think it's possible to incorporate this locking tremolo system on a cheaper guitar. I think there are cheaper pickups that sound just as good as these. What would be perfect is if Ibanez made a custom shop to pick all of the desired parts out.
I've played guitar for 9 years in jazz, metal, rock, blues, etc. and this guitar can handle it all. The neck is super fast, the whole body is way comfortable for shows, gets a great tone with many pickups, is lightweight, and looks great. Every show I play someone asks about it or asks to try it out. Stays in tune very well for a floating bridge...like reallllly well. It has a very accurate feel to it and is super adjustable to suit any preferences. I love this thing and its my favorite of all 13 guitars I currently own. Highly reccomended. If you wanna hear the tone of it with some fat active emg pickups or see it in action, look up some of my tunes on facebook or youtube. Just type in Mirrored :)...sick guitar, I love it, and everyone who plays mine raves about its comfort and ease of playing.
As a professional musician and constantly gigging, I needed an axe that will hold up to all of the abuse thrown at her, while maintaining extraordinary playability and reliability. Through all of the tight jeaned windmills and flying ninja kicks thrown at this axe, she is still standing. A few repairs later... Anyways I stand by my S. She goes along with me everywhere I go, and no Ibanez didn't pay me to write this review. One of the greatest axes I have ever taken on stage.
great guitar.i play gibson lespauls and this guitar rocks right out of the box.fast neck love the enlays.great pickups. tremlo system is the best.i play alot of different styles and this guitar hits on all of them.good price for a high end guitar that you will enjoy and wont break the bank.team j craft hit a home run with this guitar.
The guitar is what it is a perfect instrument of shredding it has what every shredder dreams of: an extremely light body, an ultra fast neck it is impossible for this guitar to go out of tune and i tried by doing a couple dive bombs and it still stays in tune. I also love that you can adjust the whammy bar basically this guitar is the whole package of shred science.
i think that this is an exeptional guitar for all players, its neck is something i have never experienced before and what i mean is it feels really smooth and comfortable and even moderate players can shred on this guitar. the gotoh precision tuneing machines are a little tricky at first getting to know them and the way they work but this guitar definetly stays in tune. I am pretty sure this is a metal guitar though i mean it gives a nice blues tone but if you buy it you should be thinking metal. i also like the fret board because i have small hands and i can still play cool rifs on the low e and a strigs. another thing on the gotoh machines dont get frustated with them just take it into guitar center and ask the workers to help you and i am sure they will be happy to tell you all about them. so this guitar is cool and i would recomend it to anyone. but its going to be my signiture so watch out.
The guitar feels great on the neck - it is so smooth. But unfortunately, it has some sustain issue. It doesn't decay naturally, but it just dies suddenly.
