  • The new Ibanez premium S's!

    Found some pics and some interesting features! First off, they both have a cutaway at the back of the lower horn allowing easy access to the upper frets! 2nd: the back of the neck on the s920e is painted black! Looks like its a satin finish though (you can see the tape marks at the top of the neck)

    Anyway, enjoy!

    Ibanezs, and other pointy style guitars are hit or miss with me, but that first one is pretty awesome looking.

      Would love to see them ditch the pickup selector plate, but still a sweet a looking axe!

      I love that damn instrument.

        They look nice but is the toggle switch on the black one in a bad spot or is it just me?
        One MIA Fender Strat, one Gibson Les Paul, one Martin Acoustic, what more do you need?

            Yeah the black one looks really sleek! It's making me rethink my rule about not buying any black guitars XD

            I'm really hoping they release a blue quilted one like their prestige model :P those are way too expensive for me :P

                They don't look very "premium" to me, honestly. I mean the finish on the brown one is upscale but that style of bolt on construction just has a cheap look about it, to me. Plus the back is more plastic than wood.

                  Same construction as some J-Customs that cost $3k+...the AANJ is great to play, and the 'plastic' back is a plate covering a trem cavity-not much you can do about that?

                      You could get rid of the trem! That'd be a huge improvement, IMO. And the control cavity seems kinda huge. Regardless, I know it's solid, the look of it just bugs me. Especially with the flat black sort of finish. I don't see why they don't just make them a set neck or neck-thru, if they're using a non-standard neck pocket anyway.

                        What's that thing that looks like a huge screw in the trem cavity in the back?

                          It's the thumb wheel for adjusting the spring tension. The ZR (ZERO Resistance) trem system is one of Ibanez's proprietary designs. The bridge pivots on roller bearings instead of a knife edge. Below is a more detail description fro the Ibanez website.

                          ZR TREMOLO - This unique system stabilizes the bridge and insures tuning stability by consistently returning the tremolo to the center point (or zero point). In addition to the usual tremolo springs, the Zero Point System features two additional springs which insures the bridge
