2005 Ibanez SZ2020FMTKF with Ibanez RG550LC hard case. This is the very first Prestige electric guitar made in Korea, at the World factory. I bought it brand new from C.V. Lloyde's in Illinois just last month. It is still brand new, no scratches, no dings, no fretwear, brand new! It looks and plays great and it is Les Paul heavy. There's no gloss on these SZ's, just FYI.
The reason I'm selling it is I just can't get used to the shorter scale of 25.1".
No trades at this time as I'm saving up for a 2007 Jem7VWH.
$850 shipped within the 48 States.
The January, 2005 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA saw the unveiling of the first Prestige version of the best selling Ibanez SZ electric guitar. The new SZ2020TKF features the signature mahogany body of the standard SZ but adds a flamed maple top, a milled brass bridge for more sustain, and a comfortably rounded SZ Prestige neck.
U.S.A.-made Seymour Duncan IBZ pickups take the SZ design to another new level of warm, fat, and powerful tone in this Ibanez Prestige model. The neck pickup features an Alnico magnet and offers warm, smooth tone with rich sustain. The bridge pickup features a ceramic magnet and provides high output with aggressive harmonics and clear attack.
The SZ2020TKF's Gibraltar Custom bridge allows for radical intonation adjustments and augments the already superior sustain provided by the SZ Prestige set-neck and mahogany body.
The Ibanez SZ guitar is a descendent of the super-slim Ibanez S, but it really is an all-new--and simpler--species. For greater simplicity and sustain, the SZ features a fixed bridge (S guitars feature more complicated double-locking trem bridges). For even more sustain and as well as upper fret access, the SZ features a set-in neck. The SZ features a shorter neck scale than the S (25.1" vs. 25.5") for a slightly looser string tension.
