The Ibanez S520-BBS Electric Guitar in Blackberry Sunburst is an exceptional model that embodies the finest features that the S Series has to offer. Combining the prized slender body profile with deep double-cutaways and bevelled edges, with a pair of Ibanez Infinity humbucking pickups for raw power and versatility, the S520-BBS is a stellar model that is built to fly.
Slender S Series Body
The S520-BBS body is built using mahogany, a solid tonewood that has power, warmth and clarity by the bucketload. Whatever style of music you play, mahogany produces the kind of juicy tones that all guitarists crave. The body is shaped to the super-thin S Series profile, streamlined to remove any obstacle in your path so that you can get on with tearing through riffs, licks and tricks. This particular model is completed in a stunning blackberry sunburst finish.
Wizard III Neck Profile
Joined to this is a 3-piece maple neck, a wood that adds sizzling highs and firm lows to the Ibanez S520-BBS guitar’s tonal palette. The neck is shaped to the lightning fast Wizard III profile, which gives you a thin and flat playing surface to perform some intricate gymnastics along, and fully deserves its reputation for enabling smooth playability.
Responsive Rosewood Fingerboard
Paired with the neck is a 24 jumbo-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with offset white dot position inlays. Thanks to the deep double-cutaway body profile, each and every fret is within easy reach.
Giving voice to the Ibanez S520-BBS Electric Guitar is a pair of Infinity humbucker pickups. Noted for their exceptional tone, dynamics and versatility, this pairing is controlled by volume and tone control knobs, while selection comes courtesy of a five-way switch. This gives you the following pickup selection options: neck - series connected, neck - parallel connected, neck and bridge together, neck and bridge inner pickups, bridge.
The S520-BBS is fitted with the excellent Ibanez Edge Zero locking tremolo system, which allows you to perform elaborate dives and wails with ease and precision. As you’d expect from a company at the top of their game, with many years’ experience in catering to pros such as Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, the Edge Zero system is the stuff of dreams.
