    Hi all, I'm newly registered on Jemsite. I have an S570 which is set up correctly in terms of neck relief, action, etc. but it has a weird problem - the neck creaks whenever I use the whammy bar, up or down. From holding the neck, it feels like two or three loud creaks coming from inside at...

So I got an Ibanez s570b.I plan to change the stock neck and bridge pickups.I want crunch,clarity and improved sustain in a big way and easy pinch harmonics.Play versatile genre...

    I'm trying to decide whether it is worth the couple hundred extra bucks for the S970 over the S570. The quantifiable major differences seem to be the pickups, the ZR2 vs ZR and ZPS2vs ZPS3. I like the finish on either option. Opinions?

    So i purchased a used Ibanez S570b. It was pictured with the ZR bridge but when it arrived it had a different bridge (See pic). Does anyone know what bridge this is and if it is as good as/better/worse than the ZR bridge that should be on this guitar.

    Hi, I've just joined this forum. I own an S570DQXM and I'm going to get a Tone Zone and an Air Norton to replace the stock pups. I'm wondering if there is some kind of cover that I can get for the middle pickup position. I hate that thing being there since I never use it. If not, what middle...

    Hi! I'm new to this forum. I'm considering buying a new S570 w/ZR tremolo or S5470 Prestige w/ZR2 tremolo. I've been reading a lot of posts citing sustain issues with these guitars where the higher notes die off in a couple of seconds. So far I've not found a consensus as to the culprit...

    Hello, I hope someone can help me with this. I have recently bought a brand new Ibanez S570. I received it the other Tuesday. The action was nice and low and there was no buzzing. On the Thursday I had a jam with my band the action had gone up by a mm or two and every note on the low E...

    Hey all. First post here, and actually the second, as I just wrote something long, and detailed, went to preview, and lost it all. Doh! In a nutshell, given the following options - which would you guys do? 1) Upgrade the stock pickups on a JS100 to PAF's or Freds 2) Purchase a new...

    I ordered an S570DXQM from musicians friend as I really love everything I've heard about the S Series. It was ~$650. Now I'm finding out that the new S's are made in a new factory that doesn't have a great rep. Should I have bought an older S model off of **** (EDIT: an online action site of...

    I bought a new Ibanez S570DXQM... And for some reason, when the volume pot is turned all the way up, the tone knob stops having any effect, and the over-all tone gets muddier. It sounds like suddenly all the pickups are "on". If I dial down the volume knob a TINY bit, the output is cut in half...

    If you haven't checked them out locally; do so! Available as glossy finish 570, 570B, quilted top 570DXQM, and the poplar burl topped 770PB (also flamed maple option FM). Some may not like the new 24 fret models, but personally i'm an S-series convert! The reviews are in! Sabre's are the hot...

    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...

    Hi all, Last week I purchased a secondhand Ibanez S570. It is a natural mahogany and has the stock pickups in (so a V1, S2 and V2), a dotted fretboard and an Edge tremelo. The serial is F0012844. I always liked the S series and especially the natural mahogany. However I can barely find any info...
