Ibanez n00b needs help determining a specific S Model
I'm looking to pick up a used S as my first real-deal Ibanez, but I'm having difficulty in determining the exact model. I'm hoping someone on here can help me out.
Here's what I'm looking for in order of priority:
- Made in Japan
- Smooth Neck Heel (NOT a fan of the square plates!)
- Original Wizard neck (or slimmest/thinnest profile offered)
- Trem Optional
- Lower side of $400-$500 if possible
Based on what I've researched thus far, some of the early 90s S470s fit the bill. Is this correct?
On a side note, I hear they come with TRS trem systems that aren't exactly held in a high regard. Is replacing one with an Edge (or another high quality trem) particularly difficult?
Thanks for all the help!
