    Hi! I'm new to the forum. It's nice to be here. I have a question about my SV5470F. The serial number is F0735777. I'm a bit confused by this since what I have read about these serial numbers is that the 2nd and 3rd digit shows the year it was built. As far as I know this model was introduced...

    Hi everyone. I plan to buy this Ibanez guitar. I've watched some videos, read some reviews. But I've heard that SV5470 has some trouble with sustain and buzzing. What can you say 'bout this guitar?

    I'm looking to sell my SV5470f. It is a beautiful guitar in the dark sunburst flamed maple top. This is a prestige Ibanez made in japan crafted by the famous J-Craft team. The fit and finish on this guitar is simply stunning and as a result it plays flawlessly. It is smooth as butter and as...

    Hey guys, so up for sale is a beautiful Ibanez Prestige SV5470. It has an ash top and mahogany body. It is in great condition! Frets look great with just minor wear. There is also some wear to the finish on the bridge. Aside from that, nothing else to speak of. The body and neck are both in...

    I'm looking for a 5 way switch that will fit in the cavity of my SV5470F. The YM-50 may be a tad to high. I measure just under 1 inch clearance. I'm wondering if I buy this Mega Switch which is 1 /38, if I can cut off about 3/8". Anybody out there have one. This is the best pic I can find...

    Hi, I'm in Japan and consider buying a SV5470 but hesitate between the A (mahogany body + ash top) of F (mahogany body + flame maple top) models. To your opinion, is there a significant difference in sound between both? Which model is the lightest? As I'm plagued with recurring back-aches, the...

    Hi all, I'm new to the forums here. I am in the market for a Prestige S5470. I've never played one and Guitar Center says they don't have one anywhere in the Midwest and would require me special ordering one through them to try one out. Well, I found a S5470 for sale from a reputable source...

    I recently purchased a super kewl SV5470. I am wondering since I dont use the whammy bar too much, I want to keep the bridge in a "fixed bridge mode" or "hard tail mode". I want to do this because it adds sustain if the bridge is fixed. Is this possible to set the trem like this?

    A week ago I bought new SV5470 Prestige beauty. It was not random choice - I've spend several month to choose proper one. I had clear prerequisites for the new guitar and this one fit exactly but for the electronics. The electronics is total crap. I can't figure out how on such an axe coud be...

    I bought a new Ibanez SV5470 less than a year ago and I'm have multiple problems with it. It always had a sustain problem but I overlooked that in the beginning. I had not played it for several months and now it buzzes on the low strings any fret (worse in the low area toward the nut) and won't...

    Hey guys, I am enlisting some of your knowledge. First off yes I am trying to get my hands on both guitars to see which I like better, but the SV5470 is a hard one to track down in stores. I live in a big city, but I guess SV5470s are not really a big seller. There is a guitar show in April...

    Quick question about about the SV5470's tremolo system, and please consider the following: 1) I hate floating trems 2) Have little experience/understanding about them That being said I have a Fender Strat with a "standard" old-style trem. My guitar shop basically made the trem "non-floating"...

    Okay, so here's the deal! I want to buy a new Ibanez!! I currently own an Ibanez SA160QM, it's okay but it only has 22 frets and the sound is mediocre. I have a Line 6 Spider III 150. Spending-wise, I have about £800-£1000. I want a guitar that will allow me to play most styles. So far I see...
