The Ibanez S series is an established part of Ibanez's lineup. Renowned for their smooth and elegant design, these ergonomic guitars offer incredible playability, built purely for shredders. With gorgeous aesthetics, a super-versatile H/S/H pickup configuration, Edge II double-locking tremolo and the notoriously thin Wizard neck and body, this is a performance machine!
The S1070PBZ-CLB's African Mahogany body will give you plenty of low-end thump and a warm mid-range, whilst still having plenty of top-end sizzle thanks to the brightness of its multi-piece neck, consisting of a mixture of Panga Panga, Maple, Walnut and Purpleheart. Adorned with a stunning Poplar Burl top, you can be sure that this instrument will get plenty of attention on stage.
Ibanez's signature Wizard neck profile will make fast passages a total breeze to play, with its incredibly thin carve. The super-flat fretboard has been fitted with stainless steel jumbo frets, to offer you maximum playability up and down the fretboard when playing scales or swept arpeggios. Its elegant off-set inlays are classy but understated, and with ergonomic luminescent side dot inlays you can see exactly where you're at on even the darkest of stages.
Electronics and Hardware :
A premium instrument should be fitted with premium parts, and Ibanez have done just that. With three DiMarzio pickups, you can expect optimal tones and power. The notorious Air Norton and Tone Zone humbucker combination (in the neck and bridge positions respectively) is incredibly versatile, handling high doses of gain for heavier styles whilst also sounding clear and vibrant with clean settings. The True Velvet single-coil in the middle position will let you attain S-style tones when used independently, ideal for sweet chord progressions or softly picked sections.
Ibanez's Edge-Zero II double-locking tremolo system will keep this instrument in tune no matter how extreme your divebombs or flutters might be. With all hardware appointments finished in a sleek Cosmo Black, this modern-looking guitar will inspire you to play it for hours on end.

Whats wrong with it??
Has a small rough patch of wood on the bass side behind the 6th fret position
Should be an easy sand off and re-oil job
