Comments about Ibanez S5570 Prestige S Series Electric Guitar:
No doubt it's a beautiful guitar. Feels great to handle and play. I was greatly disappointed with the sound and drive of the middle pickup. I had an Ibanez Standard and this Prestige and for 3 weeks I was able to make an objective side by side comparison.
The Prestige definitely had better clarity on both bridge and neck pickups. I also really liked the humbucker drive and sound from the bridge pickup. Close to a Les Paul, I thought. What was really lacking was the drive from the middle pickup.
The Standard had great drive with its Quantum (S), but with the Prestige ST2, the drive completely disappeared. If you boosted your amp gain to compensate, then when you engaged the bridge your gain was overboard. That was my only issue with the guitar. And the fact that I sent 3 inquiries to Ibanez, asking about this situation, and received NO responses.
