    So I decided to put together a custom build with an old S-series body I grabbed off the bay for cheap. I am putting it together with my luthier Kip Elder at starr guitars. http://www.starrguitars.com/ I am slowly getting the pieces together and picking paints and letting them do fun work of...

    I wonder whether anyone around here can help ? A couple of weeks ago I purchased an Ibanez JCS21, advertised as being 'No. 1 of 12'. The guitar's serial number is 15112, and it also came with a 'dog-tag' saying 'JCS21/0001'. The guitar is in immaculate condition, and without even plugging it...

    Would I get a similar if not the same sound from a S521 as I would from a S771? They seem to have all of the same specs, save the poplar burl top and single coil.

    Hey everyone, I'm extremely new to using this forum and this is actually my first post. Bear with me please. I need the opinion and suggestion of someone who has played several of the S series guitars, or can at least tell me what MAJOR differences would be between two of them. Okay, so I've...

    Hi all, Like the title says, I'm looking for a Japan-made S series, preferably the S470 or S540. Pickups/electronics and cosmetic condition are of little to no concern to me (but do realize that they will factor in to the overall price.) What I care about is mainly neck-related: - Truss rod...

    I have a S370 I bought around 03 or 04 that has the old TRS locking tremolo. I've always had love-hate relationship with the thing especially after a brief stint playing a EVH Wolfgang that had the Floyd Rose Original. I would like to replace the TRS with a FRO (which I understand is a drop in...

    Hey Folks! I've just received my first Ibanez Prestige! I'd previously purchased a 770PB, but decided to return it and take the plunge... and I must say, I'm glad I did. This guitar plays like a dream, and I haven't even set it up yet! The neck and frets are done to perfection and play like...

    I have an Ibanez S540LTD guitar in black For Sale. I am the original owner and it's in great condition. I didn't get a gig bag or hard case with it, so it's as is. The stock pickups have been replaced with DiMarzio D-Sonic in the bridge and Air Norton in the neck. I will include the...

    Looking to sell my Ibanez S-series S540LTD, I believe it's either a 1997-1998 version. I bought it new then, but haven't checked the serial number, so I'm not certain. It's black, has some players wear, but is in overall great condition. The neck and bridge pickups have been replaced with...

    I just bought what I think is a USA custom Ibanez S-series. I am only familiar with Japanese made/Korean made. It has a metal plate on the neck joint that says 1726 Winchester Rd. Bensalem PA 13020 U.S.A. Serial number is 88**** which I'm assuming is a 1988 model. The neck has no markings or...

    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. :D 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...

    Hello, I purchased a USA custom shop Ibanez several years ago at a garage sale and would like smore information on the guitar. The neckplate is stamped with the Case Avenue Hollywood address, and it is an S-Series body type with a transparent red finish. How can I determine the guitar's...

    Are there any guitar cable that won't fit the S-series jack, other than Bullet cable?
  19. Pickups & wiring
    I'm very happy with the Seymour Duncan SH-4 in the bridge of my USA Custom (Basswood body). I'm wondering if I'll get somewhat the similar sound in an Ibanez S-470 as the S models has Mahogany body's. The old V2 stock pickups are just dreadful in comparison.
