Ibanez release their top-of-the-range S Prestige model for 2016 – the Ibanez S Prestige S5521Q. Still the cutting edge of Ibanez design, the S series continues to be a marvel of form and function with its super-thin contoured body, the Super Wizard HP neck, Gibraltar Standard II bridge…

Its signature body shape – sculpted, lightweight, and mahogany – is stronger and more musically responsive than guitars weighing twice as much. The S series is still a rock ‘n’ roll version of a quick, graceful, and potentially lethal weapon.

The Ibanez S Prestige S5521Q features include the Super Wizard HP Neck “The neck for shredders” – 17mm thickness at 1st fret and 19mm at the 12th. The Gibraltar Standard II is a simple fixed bridge that was designed to unify with the guitar’s body and provide optimal transfer of each string’s vibration. The Gotoh Magnum Lock machineheads offer incredible tuning stability.

There are three principles behind our new Ibanez Prestige line: Precision, Performance, and Playability. The combination of high-tech manufacturing techniques with old-world Japanese craftsmanship, true innovation in design and construction, and the incorporation of ideas and suggestions from musicians from around the world are the cornerstones of the Prestige production process.
