Overview

The S770PB is part of Ibanez's cutting-edge S Series which 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. It has a WIzard III maple neck, Ibanez's thin, flat, and fast, yet strong and sturdy neck which offers unlimited playability for demanding players and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for wide tonal range. Another great feature is the Edge-Zero II Tremolo lower-profile bridge which adds to your playing comfort and has a stud lock function for more stable tuning. The S770PB's Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation.

Case sold separately.

At first glance this guitar looks like any other Ibanez S series,but when you pick up this guitar you will experience first-hand what this thing can do.First off, the five-way pickup swich gives a lot of variety in tone.The neck has exremely low action so arpeggios are very easy to do and the Ibanez Zero Resistance tremolo stays in tune very well so you can pull off some insane dive bombs without having to worry about the guitar going completely out of tune.

I have played an Ibanez RG model for years and decided to upgrade to the S series. The thing that initially drew me to this guitar was the appearance. It is certainly one of the most beautiful looking guitars I have ever seen and the light weight is a great feature. As far as playability goes, it is really no better than my RG. The frets are a little higher than those on the RG so it's actually less comfortable for sliding up and down the neck. The major problem though is with the tuning and setup stability.

The guitar will not stay in tune for more than a day and tuning it is a huge chore. I've played Floyd Rose bridges for twenty years so I know they can be a pain to tune sometimes, however this guitar takes far more effort to tune than any I've owned and the fine tuners on the bridge are so fine that you have to crank the heck out of them just to get a response. What's worse, the guitar has required constant adjustments to keep it playing the way I like it. I set up the tremolo system on my guitars so that I can pull the bar up a perfect fourth on the G-string. This guitar will simply not stay adjusted, and when you mess with the trem screws even a little bit you have to spend an hour trying to retune the thing. Perhaps the finish makes the guitar more sensitive to temperature and humidity changes but I constantly had to adjust the truss rod as well to try and keep the neck in the same configuration. And of course when you adjust the truss rod it throws everything else off so there's another hour's worth of adjusting everything.

I finally got sick of dealing with it and sold it, getting back only half the money I paid for it. In retrospect I should have returned it to MF within the ninety days and cut my losses. It may be beautiful to look at but for me it was definitely not worth the hassle.

      Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

      Bought this guitar for my son who has been playing for 3 yearsseemed good in store but when we got home it had some fret buzz on the middle pickup. Once he started playing it we quickly realized that it was difficult for him to do arpedgios as the strings seemed too close to the pick ups. Also though it is nice that it is very light weight it did have a flimsy feel to it. After playing for 4 days we returned it for jackson pro soloist for a bit more money and have been very happy

      Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

      This is my 3rd S. My first was a 470DXQM with the ZR bridge and wizard 2 neck. The second was a 420, with ZR and wizard 2 as well. The ZR is an awsome bridge one of the main reasons to play an S. By the time the edge was into'd I had bought an RGA72. Which had the edge trem. Initially I was unsure but came to feel the edge was a better bridge. So when I started planning which instruments are available for my next purchase an S is always in the running. Having playd S's and knowing the wonderful playability of the line I started looking into what is new. To my suprise the edge 2 and a wider wizard 3 neck was taking the place like an upgrade begging me to try it. To say the older setup with S hardware is something old or outdated would be wrong. For afterall as I mentioned the hardware was the whole reason to play an S. That being said I must impress pure impressive nature of the new setup. The edge 2 stays in tune and complements the pickup set installed. The wizard 3 has a flatter feel that seems to be faster the the wizard 2. All around i was very impressed by the new S. I am playing through a EVH 5150 iii 50 w head and matched cab and the clear ring of the new S is very impressive and the warm feel of the slit poplar makes this S a model not to be missed.

      Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

      OK, I've had this for about 6 months. It has become my number 1 in my line up.
      Number one reason I like this guitar is it is light, I have shoulder pain from playing Les Pauls, and My Warmoth Strat with a hard maple body, that weights a TON.

      I bought it used and the original pickups have been replaced with Duncans.

      I happen to like a wide flat neck it's not for everyone, but Steve Vai seems to like that also.

      So I can't review the stock pickups,
      I will state that the indo-china wiring is cheaper than an am radio!

      Get this and put the pick-ups of choice in it and save your neck.

          Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

          I've had this guitar for a while and it's safe to say that I absolutely love it. I bought it used and had some issues with the neck screws being stripped, but after that was fixed, it's been fantastic. I use this guitar for metalcore and I have heavy gauge strings on it tuned to drop C, but with the pickups, the tone options are endless. You can use this guitar for rock and blues too easily. I usually keep it on the bridge pickup, but you can use the neck pickup for a bluesy tone and the middle pickup give the guitar a really interesting bass-like tambre that sounds awesome with stuff like Breaking Benjamin riffs. It's also beautiful with the burl top, but I would recommend looking at the ACTUAL GUITAR before you buy it to see if you like the pattern, as each one is unique.
          tl;dr Amazing guitar.

          Great Flexible Guitar

          By David Aly

          from Bryan, TX

          Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

          Before I bought this guitar, I came into guitar center looking for something very flexible in terms of musical style. I play all kinds of music from jazz, classical and blues to metal and classic rock. This was by FAR the most flexible guitar I've ever played. Most of the s-series is in this regard, but i fell in love with this particular model. Great price/performance quality ratio. The Edge III tremolo system has no rival but the original Floyd Rose. Overall a very excellent guitar.

              Best guitar I've played in my life. I've played for almost ten years, and had world class guitars in my hands more than a few times, and this guitar beats all.(I work as a Luthier when I'm not playing, and this guitar is so easy to set up it's almost comical.) My Les Paul and Modified Telecaster can't even begin to keep up with this guitar. I've had a 770PB for about two years now, and the one thing I've done is added a Dimarzio "Mo' Joe" Joe Satriani Pickup. I did this because the factory Infinity series bridge pickup wasn't quite clear enough for my taste, and lacked the clear harmonics my playing requires, but the "Mo' Joe" fixed that. I would also highly recommend getting the matching Ibanez Hard Case to go with this guitar.

              Better than RGAs!!

              By Angel Martinez

              from Tucson

              Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

              The Wizard III neck is close to perfection. Scales, arpeggios, chords, and tapping all feel very natural and comfortable. The Infinity pick-ups offer a very wide range of tone and voicing to any riff. My favorite feature is the locking/floating tremolo. I've played on Floyd Rose and Ibanez tremolos of different designs and this is by far my favorite. With the removable lock-bar in place, any dip or pull on the whammy bar will pull right back to perfect tone and the added tension on the entire bridge makes for the most comfortable tremolo to palm mute pick. I had a little trouble with fret buzz on the low E & A when tuned in drop-B with thicker strings, before some minimal, fast adjustments on the truss rod. The tremolo tension wheel is a tremendous tool when dropping or raising tuning. Overall fantastic MUST HAVE Ibanez!

                This is a beautiful guitar. However, there is a good size gap where the neck meets the body. And there is a shoddy shim inserted to reduce the gap -- it is very visible and noticeable. Because of that, this guitar seems to be refurbished and not new. MF gave me a meager refund for this issue. I think it would have been fair to refund more for such poor quality control and workmanship. I don't plan to purchase anything from MF again.
