    Hey Guys! Got an almost new S420 WR neck (black headstock, rosewood fretboard). It's been on the guitar for about a month and got swapped out for a maple fretboard neck. Maybe someone will have some use for it. No fret wear whatsoever. Price $150 plus shipping (I'm in Europe). Thanks!

    Guys I'm thinking of buying an Ibanez s420 and to go with it a roland cube 40xl. Well, I would be replacing the stock pups with Seymour duncan distortion sh-6 in the bridge as I play mostly heavy metal and duncan jazz sh-2 in the neck for neat clean solos as I also play blues, really love...

    Hey guys, I recently purchased an S420 with the stock INF's. I play in a progressive melodic metal band (The Discovery, check out our FB :smile:) so I decided to go with white w/ black pole Evolution bridge and Liquifire neck. I figured that while I'm getting that done, I may as well upgrade...

    Hi All, This post is sort of an intro, too. I'm a longtime player who had Ibanezs back in the 80's. Lately, I've been playing parts guitars. I saved up some money to get a new guitar. I did some research online, and decided I was going to get a Blackberry S420. It looked nice for...

    Confession time...... I've always been a bit of a guitar snob. I've been very lucky with my purchases and I own some very nice instruments. I'm a player (not a collector) and have always played the instruments before I've handed over the cash so I get a good sounding and playing instrument. My...

    Hello all! Im looking at purchasing a new Ibanez guitar and I am doing my research. I've already read quite a few articles from here that turned up in the search engines I use but I figured a SPECIFIC post about my situation would be appropriate. Budget is an issue for me right now. I WANT a...

    This is an Ibanez S420 (Blackberry Sunburst) guitar that was purchased in March 2011 (I have proof of purchase). A few of you may even remember when I posted my NGD when I got this axe. The stock pickups and electronics have been replaced with a new set of the Dimarzio D-Sonic/Air Norton combo...

    Woohoo! Never had an Ibanez before, and I think I may be a convert. I've had a few guitars before, a Gibson Les Paul Standard, an ESP EC-1000, an ESP H-1001, and I currently own an ESP Standard Horizon NTII, and Fender Tele Deluxe 72 Reissue. This thing feels better than my ESP Standard, and it...

    Hey guys! I'm a new Ibanez convert and have just bought an S420 that's on it's way (though I'll always love my ESP Horizon... sorry!). I have played a few Ibanez's before and like many others am not the biggest fan of the INF pickups so I went ahead and ordered a set of the F-spaced D-sonic...

    Still in shipment, but I will be an owner of a Blackberry S420. Ive heard good and bad and some biased opinions on the Factory Spec Pickups. INF series. My question is, since almost everyone Ive spoken to, says to replace them with Dimarzio's, but which ones. I dont want to get a set and not...

    why cant I find these for sale anywhere? The only place i can see pics with that finish are ibanez.com The new finish supposedly was premiered at the summer 2010 namm. Although looking through pics from NAMM I couldn't see it either. I can find the weathered black S420 but nothing on the black...

    OK, so the deal is that I am due a tax rebate (not as much as I wanted unfortunately) but it leaves me approx £400 to spend on another guitar. I've looked at the new 2010 model S570 and S420 but apart from the single coil on the S570 I am struggling to see what the difference is... Anybody got...

    Hey guys, Im having a major problem out of my S420. I had evos put in by a luthier and now I get a severe volume drop in positions 2 and 4 of the switch. I cant play it clean as its too bad. I know how to wire and Ive tried every combination as per the instructions that came with the evos. Is it...
