Overview

Ibanez's marvel of form and function, the S Series, continues to evolve for today's player. Cloaked in a dramatic burst finish, a rosewood fingerboard features jumbo frets. Lurking beneath the S Series graceful 3-D shape is mahogany specifically chosen for S Series instruments.

Light enough to amaze in terms of comfort, heavy enough to provide the tone and sustain that players expect from the S Series. As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Wizard III neck is yet another achievement in playability, providing the kind of comfort that translates to responsiveness and speed. Quantum pickups, along with 5-way switch, provide an impressive palette of tone textures.

With the Edge Zero II tremolo, the most extreme sonic acrobatics can be fearlessly performed with confidence that the guitar will effortlessly return to perfect tuning.

Case sold separately.

    This guitar is easy to play, light weight, sounds fantastic and comes in 2 beautiful colors. The pictures of the guitar do not give it justice.

    Comments about Ibanez S Series S520 Electric Guitar:

    I bought one of these because I bought a hardtail with quilted maple that sounds and feels really good. This trem model sounds significantly thinner. I'm not sure what it is, maybe the hardware. I love the trem, but do not like the overall sound. The same pups are in the hardtail and sound great, very rock metal versatile, but not on this model. Clean tones seem nice but I have plans to replace the pups with something that will add thickness to distorted channels. The quitar itself is very comfortable and fun to play but I am dissapointed in the sound. I have a few Ibanez that range in price and quality, JS, Iton label S, the S QM hardtail dragon eye burst from GC, but this is by far my least favorite. There are better guitars for $200 less unfortunately, and I love Ibanez.

    High Quality guitar. No flaws on painting or any cosmetic damage. Very conformable neck and body. The new 18" brown burst finish is beautiful. I recommend Ibanez to anybody that wants a high quality instrument, long lasting and in an affordable price.

    Thanks!
