New S5470F...

The shop got one of these in from our Namm order. Rich is the king of awesome pics, but I like posting them out in the sun. I guess I like doing it because the catalog photos always look quite different to me than the real thing when you finally see them. We were gonna order the quilted version in the Cherry Blossom, but saw it at Namm and opted for this one instead. Anyway...thought I'd share some real pics of one.

Re: New S5470F...

So freakin' beautiful. I bought a S5470 TKS last year because the 5470F isn't available in Germany....and even though I love mine, this one looks just blasting.

Re: New S5470F...

That's gorgeous, thank you!

If you would post a photo of the neck joint, I'd appreciate it. It's not high off the body like the Korean ones, is it? Doesn't look like it.

Peace

Mike

Re: New S5470F...

I think a maple fingerboard would make that perfect, but still, nice guitar.

Beautiful. Only needs a maple bound ebony board without inlays.

Re: New S5470F...

Thanks so much for the pics. I had posted here a few weeks ago asking for pics of the S5470F and TKS models as I'm really torn on which I want right now. As you state, pics in the catelogs and store sites are inconsistant at best. I had almost made up my mind for the tks as the F version looked a lot lighter than these pics do (and I want really deep blue). Now I'm back on the fence.

Would love to see more pics, or some of the tks version if you have one too. Huge thanks, really appreciated.

Didn't get the other one. I'm sorry this was the only one we ordered. The S series doesn't do well in our shop. Lots of RG's, but the thin bodies of the S seem to leave people a bit uncomfortable. So we kinda snag a special one now and then and leave the rest as "order only" (or tell 'em to see Rich. lol)

We're actually not quite sure what to do with this one now... It's sorta in limbo. The guy that initially wanted it made a few payments and now can't be found. I mean literally...police report by the family and everything. He's been missing since February 21st. lol. So not sure where this guitar will end up.

Re: New S5470F...

Was the cherry quilt version more light pink in person? I was hoping it would be a deeper red but the stock photo looks pink .

BTW,you didn't actually state why you took the blue FM over the cherry Q,was it the color?

that is exactly why...
I got to the Ibanez booth at Namm and my rep and I walked around putting things on order. We actually got to order a bit before Namm, but the Cherry Blossom was the first thing I ditched upon seeing it in person. I too hoped for a deeper red. The top wood was nice and all that, and very well made. Just the color made me and two other guys from my shop kinda put our hands up and go "uhh, no...we'll go with the blue flame-top". lol
