    I just bought an S470 for $130. It has the LO-TRS 2 trem on it but didn't come with the arm. I thought I was getting a smokin deal and I could just get a replacement arm for a few bucks. I can't find one anywhere! So now I am considering replacing the trem altogether but from what I've read only...

    Hey guys, I understand that this topic has been discussed before on these glorious forums, but please bare with me... I managed to score a beautiful looking S470DXQM in Red Viking for £250. It was second hand and in mint condition. Snapped it up without hesitation! I play mainly clean, blues...

    I picked a S470 DXQM body on ebay and a nice S540 neck for a project i want to do. I have some questions if anyone is willing to help me out. 1. The trem that was taken off the guitar was a ZR trem. Do i have to stick with that trem or can a Lo Pro Edge or Edge pro fit on the guitar? 2. Will...

    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'm checking out the s470 - one from '97 and one from '98 Interestingly enough I think they both have had their pups exchanged. both are similarly priced / condition but I was wondering, do you go with the EMG or Dimarzio ('Joe Satriani's pickup setup from Dimarzio' as the ad says)? What...

    I was looking at the '88 / '87 Radius' - most good ones seem to be around $800 plus and that's out of my budget. I know some have gotten them for under this, and I'm still looking. Then I came across the s470 - seems very similar in ways, different in others. I had a chance to play a Radius...

    I bought this one as kind of a mistake. I wanted an amber colored one with a ZR trem, and bought this one in a moment of passion. I don't need it as I now have my amber colored one. This is in pristine condition, the only things wrong with it is that some of the cosmo black is worn off of the...

    Hi all, I'm new to Jemsite, Ibanez, and floating trems. I bought a 1997 S470 on craig's recently and need to replace the Lo-TRS II, I've decided on the Gotoh. In searching for a good deal I stumbled across mojotone.com and the price is by far the cheapest I've found, cheap enough to make me...

    Hey there. I'm in the process of upgrading my old 2001 Ibanez S470 mahogany wood body guitar (SLIM). I already posted a thread about the tremolo system but this thread is about the pickups. My guitar still have their original AH1/AH2 humbucker pickups (used on the Joe Satriani Signature JS100...

    What's up people. I'm planning on changing the tremolo system on my 2001 Ibanez S470. It has a Lo-TRS II tremolo system which is dated and no longer can keep the guitar in tune for a long period of time. I'm interested in the ZR-Tremolo system but I don't think it fits in my guitar since mine is...

    Has anyone tried a AT-1 in a Ibanez S470 or similar mahogany S model? I like the sound of the PAF pro I put in the in the bridge, but it seems to be laking the bass that I am looking for. I am trying to get a thicker tone. I really like the "aww" type sound that seems to come from Dimarzio...

    Hi, I have a purple S470 which I used to love. However, I think I've been spoiled by just how gorgeous my new JEM7V is! That and my Fender Strat, of course - different type of guitar but still wonderful. Firstly, I am struggling with the action on the S470 and have posted elsewhere about...

    Hi, I have an S470 which I am struggling to get the action right on. It's a 2003 model. If I get the action low, at typical JEM / RG height, I get fret buzz. It's obvious on the low strings and of the choking/tone killing side on the high strings. I'm adjusting the trem height to do this...

    Hello all! After a few academic successes, I've been promised $200 cash by a local community center, and my dad promised to get me a Peavey Vypyr tube 60 with the Sanpera II controller pedal. With the cash, I'm looking to maybe get an S series (s470 or s370, probably). When I get additional...

    hi everyone, New to this forum. I am actually mainly a Strat/Tele classic rock/blues guy, but ever since the original FGM100 (the fluorescent yellow Frank Gambale signature model) came out and I had a chance to play one over 20 years ago, I have lusted for a Sabre body Ibanez. I'm now the proud...

    Hello All, Just traded my RG7620BK for this and a handful of cash. Just got out of 7's and was really wanting an S. Almost passed up until I saw how rare this was. She needs a fret level due to some choking on the 19th and 20th fret but she is great passed that. 1993 S470 in Trans Red. This...
