Re: The S series guitar thread.

C.Thep...those japanese prestige guitars play really great. How do you like that QM bridge pup?

Nice one, Ferrous. I like the older IBZUSA pups.

Re: The S series guitar thread.

Customer's S540 and my S1220

S1220

S1220


The 1220 makes the best sound of all my guitars and is in close contention with my RG1520 for the position of 'overall favourite'!

Re: The S series guitar thread.

Well, first they need to start making some in japan again. They also need to put the new ones on a diet. They are heavy fat hogs by comparison.


I like the stained oil too. That's almost the perfect guitar. IMHO.

Re: The S series guitar thread.

I like these too. Never see too many of them though...





I wonder why they routed so much space behind the trem???

^^^

I always thought as soon as 03 hit they began seperating the trems...ZR for S's and EP's for RG's???

How did that one get made? That looks fantastic though. Absolutely delicious.

Re: The S series guitar thread.

never seen one with an edge pro in before.

must say, all the MIJ prestige sabres w H-H p/ups do it for me.
S2120x is next on the GAS list and i also quite like some of the first ones that came with ZR trems. There are various finishes that i like - if money were no object i'd collect them all!

Ibanez does need to make the prestige ones in Japan again and needs to come up with more 7 string options.

The s7420 is the only one we're likely to come across on the 'bay.

Re: The S series guitar thread.

im a big SZ fan. I can vouch for how great the SZ520 is, as it was my main for a year. so im sure a 2040FM would be great

They need to make a 24 fret 7 string version of the SZ, and I'd be all over that. But I know they wont, so Carvin time lol

Re: The S series guitar thread.

If it were up to me they'd make a 24 fret, 7 string version of every model!
