    Hello Everyone, A few months back, I bought a second hand Ibanez S5470F (Red Viking). I'm still really amazed by this guitar's playability, and the only bad thing I can say about it is it could have more sustain, but this can easily be solved using pedals and it is to be expected with an Ibanez...

    Question: Has Prestige S series S5470 etc improved it's sustain or was that only isolated cases of issues? I saw some posts that several guys had issues with the notes sustaining and had to go through drastic measures to fix it, I think the bridge was the problem. What about the S5570 series...

    I know the sustain issue on S5470's has been around on this site and the Ibanez forum pretty much since the guitar came out. Many people have suggested dozens of different fixes (some silly, some not so). My post-2009 (when they introduced a new middle pickup) S5470 doesn't sustain well...

    I love the tone of my S5470 which has Ibanez' proprietary Hot Grinder 2 in the bridge, and I wanted to buy a bridge pickup to put in my RG so that it sounds like that. I've heard on some online forums the HG2 is meant to be based on a Dimarzio D Activator, but there's not really that much info...

    Hi. I would like to buy a S5470 and I am limited to the options that are available here in Bangkok. I've been playing for ages with a RG550LTD (now with Dimarzio Evos) and I also have an American Deluxe Strat. No big complains about the RG550LTD (although it would require a new tremolo) but I...

    I need help deciding what's going on. About a month ago, I bought an S5470 TKS series guitar off of eBay. The reason I bought one was SPECIFICALLY because I was excited to feel the awesomeness of the 17-19mm thinness of the neck! ;) First of all, before this buy, I owned an RGA121 NTF which has...

    I am recently planning to swap out the zr2 bridge from my newly bought ibanez s5470 with edge zero (NOT edge zero 2). May I ask if any modification to the guitar body need to be made in order to fit in the new tremolo? Also, do the height adjustment posts of edge zero have the same threads as...

    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'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...

    I have an Ibanez S5470 Prestige Team J-Craft guitar I need to sell as I'm on lockdown from the wife. It's a one in, one out rule and I have a backordered Ibanez AS153 coming at the end of the month. The S5470 is the beautiful Viking Red Flame model, MADE IN JAPAN, and it's pretty darn close to...

    Hello all. I intend to buy an Ibanez S series guitar in the next month or so but have a few questions I need answering first if possible. I have read many posts here and elsewhere and 90% seem to say the same thing get a second hand pre 2003 S Series. That though is not an option as...

    Swapped out a hum-cancelling Dimarzio "single" coil, the HS-3, for a Fast Track1 and am really, really pleased with the results. Out of all of my Dimarzio-equipped guitars, this set takes the least amount of dial in time to get a good sound, either through a tube amp or an Eleven Rack. They...
