Ibanez S520 S Series Electric GuitarIbanez
Ibanez's marvel of form and function, the S Series, continues to evolve for today's player. Cloaked in a dramatic burst finish, a jatoba fingerboard features jumbo frets and off-set white dot inlays. Lurking beneath the S Series graceful 3-D shape is mahogany, specifically chosen for S Series instruments.
Light enough to amaze in terms of comfort, heavy enough to provide the tone and sustain that players expect from the S Series. As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Wizard III neck is yet another achievement in playability, providing the kind of comfort that translates to responsiveness and speed. Quantum pickups, along with 5-way switch, provide an impressive palette of tone textures.
With the Edge Zero II tremolo, the most extreme sonic acrobatics can be fearlessly performed with confidence that the guitar will effortlessly return to perfect tuning.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the authorized refurbisher couldn't find anything wrong with it. No repairs or modifications were made to the guitar - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone. The guitar looks mint. Action at the 12th fret is currently set to 5/64" (bass side) and 4/64" (treble side). Electronics and Edge Zero II tremolo bridge are in perfect working order, so this axe is shred-ready! Back of the headstock is NOT stamped "used", but the original serial # has been replaced with a new one.

About our set-ups: We do our best to accurately describe the current set-up and playability of each guitar. However, due to temperature and humidity changes the guitar may experience while in transit, it's possible for the neck and body to slightly "adjust" along the way. After all, guitars are primarily wooden instruments that are highly susceptible to their environment. By the time you receive the guitar, un-box it and tune it up, you may find that it needs a slight adjustment to get it back to the set-up specs that we originally described in our listing. Please keep this in mind before purchasing.
