Ibanez S 520 EX Mystery

Something has been done here. It is printed S 520 EX1 on the headstock. I thought S 520 EX had Zr tremolo and INF PU. Mine has QM1 and QM2 PU and a licensed floyd rose.
Is it and old S Series (wich one) with a new neck ? , or maybe a S 520 EX with QM PU swap and a new flyoyd tremolo ?

Re: Ibanez S 520 EX Mystery

Thanks. I have been looking at online catalogs from 2000-2006. The serial number on the headstock says producion in 2005. But i'm pretty shure this gitar is not a orginal S 520 EX

Re: Ibanez S 520 EX Mystery

From what I could find, the pickups come from the Prestige S. The trem I'm not so sure about. Can you get a closeup pic of the trem?

edit: trem might be a Lo-TRS. Maybe somebody will chime in here to confirm/correct my finding.

This is what I've found so far http://www.rig-talk.com/forum/viewto...p?f=3&t=109095
Definitely not the stock trem.

If you're up to it you can pull the neck off to see what's stamped in the neck pocket. That way you can know exactly what you got before you sell it.
