Ibanez Premium S ?

I'm just curious if anyone has heard anything concerning the Ibanez Premium line getting extended to other models besides the RG, specifically, the S, and if so, when it might be happening.

I've scoured the net, and have come up with bupkis.

Thanks in advance.

Hasn't been announced yet, if they ever do it. I'm sure they'll test out the RG Premium and SR Premium and see how they do before they do anything else. I'd guess if they do S Premium it won't be anytime in 2011.

This makes me a really sad panda.

Thanks for the fast response, though.

Yeah, but that's just what I think, so you never know! S Premium would be amazing though.

Ibanez Premium S? Yes please. In purple, orange and green flame "tops".

Rock on!

Re: Ibanez Premium S ?

You never know. From what I understand, there's talk of adding some fixed-bridge stuff (maybe) later this year. After that, I'd almost bet on other things like S series, 7 strings and others showing up. Hoshino does own the factory, after all, so it would make sense that they'd utilize it fully. Some recent S Prestige models were made in "other than Japanese" factories (don't remember where- Korea? Indo.?), so it wouldn't be unheard of.

Just so you guys know, I emailed Ibanez directly, and got this back, a day later:

Hello!

At this time, there are no official plans to release a Premium S-Series model.
However, if we did decide to offer a Premium S-Series, it would not be released it until January 2012 at the earliest. In the meantime, if you are torn between the standard S and the Prestige S, I would encourage you to play them both before making a decision. The neck on a Prestige guitar is something you have to FEEL to appreciate.

Thanks for your interest!

That's a drag. I want an S prestige BADLY but it's not in the budget. I think that they would sell like hotcakes.

Re: Ibanez Premium S ?

well i was dissapointed by the Jcustom S line - hopefully the premium S's are a mahog body's, floating trem's, 24 frets with a wicked top.

The vine of life inlay i could live without. It'd be hard but I could make the sacrifice.

Time will tell--I'd bet they come out with a Premium S eventually.

For about the same money you could get a used S prestige.

I've seen tons of 1520's on 3bay lately, and there's a 1220WNF at the moment.

I just wonder why the S1520 didn't come with a VLX91 switch and DiMarzios, because it's one of the best S models out there. Same thing for the 1220 Walnut Flat.
