FS: Custom Ibanez S5EX1 "Prestige"

I'm going to loose my shirt on this one but it must be done. Buy this, plug it in and then tell me how stupid I was to sell it. I guarantee it's not a dog.

This is an Ibanez S5EX1 with a zebra wood top. It was a GC exclusive. I've basically taken the body and upgraded EVERYTHING. You won't find another like it.

Body is solid mahogany, maple neck, rosewood fretboard with Zebra wood top. It has a five way selector switch and it has a whole host of sounds from pristine, jazzy cleans to drop D heavy stuff. It'll do vintage pretty well too!

-Prestige neck! Japanese market Prestige neck instead of the standard neck. Matching Japanese locking nut. NO FRETWEAR!

-Dimarzio PAF Joe/Mo Joe humbuckers with a Dimarzio Fast Track in the middle. All are new with no wear.

-Japanese Gotoh tuners, not the cheap chinese or Indonesian models.

-VLX91 5-way switch

-CTS brass shaft pots

-Cosmetic upgrades include a BLACK tremolo, new black pickup rings and zebrawood knobs.

It's set up with Ernie Cobalt 9's, brand new. Guitar doesn't have any dings, cracks or scratches anywhere. Very light surface swirling if you look in the right light. Otherwise it's in excellent +++ condition with no mechanical issues. Tremolo has new studs.

Tremolo is set up as a full floater but I can put the original zero return system in there for you. Has the tremolo arm.

Now I owned an S5470 Prestige. This guitar plays more evenly over the entire fret board than the Prestige model did. Back to back comparisons between the two gave the nod to the S5EX1 and not just by me but by a few others who a/b'd the guitars. It's really an amazing instrument.

I will include a set of Ibanez Prestige pickups, the original pickup rings, original knobs AND the original Cosmo tremolo (which is pretty much mint). I'll also include the original Dimarzio boxes for the Mo Joe/PAF Joe pickup set.

It'll also come in a most excellent PRS SE gig bag. I really like these bags and have them for all of my guitars. Bag is mint.

The only difference in the guitar vs. the photos are the now black pickup rings.

Needs nothing, no issues, set up and ready to play. If my other offering sells (FGM 400), I'll most likely keep this guitar and vice versa.

I'm selling this for $775 plus shipping ($35 est). It probably cost me about $250 more than that to put this guitar together. I'll swallow paypal fees. I have 100% feedback on Ebay (velocityimages) and I've sold two other guitars on this forum and both customers are satisfied.

Shoot me a PM if you're interested. Thanks for looking!
