I am having a bit of trouble identifying what looks like an S series Prestige model with an HH pickup configuration. I might be interested in this model but I wanted to know something more about it.
Here's a couple of pictures:
What do you think?
I can see the pickups were swapped, and the owner installed a Crunch Lab at the bridge (and probably a Liquifire at neck, that would make sense).
The neck inlays look like the ones on a Prestige (similar to an S5470) with the offset small dot inlays and the three dots at the twelfth fret...
Also, you can see the KTS sticker on the back of the headstock, so this must be a recent neck with titanium reinforcement.
However, I don't recall any S Prestige having HH configuration, with the exception of the S5420QD which is available only in Japan and only in the Tiger Eye finish.
I searched the Ibanez catalogs (even the Japanese ones) and I couldn't find anything similar to this.
I am very cautious when it comes to guitars floating on the internet, but this doesn't look like a fake.
What do you think? Could it be a refinished S5420QD?
