The Ibanez S series of models are lauded for their smooth curves and super slender lines that make them exceptionally comfortable to play. In terms of looks, playability, tone and construction, it doesn't get much better than the Ibanez S5521Q-TAB Prestige Series Electric Guitar in Transparent Aqua Blue. Building on the foundations of set out by its predecessors - this Prestige model offers an exceptional instrument at a price belies its qualities.
S Series Body Profile
The body is crafted from select mahogany, which has been paired with a quilted maple top that has been finished in transparent aqua blue. Not only does the body look fantastic, but it also has the useful quality of giving the upper frequencies a lift whilst remaining very lightweight. The body profile is incredibly slim and feels very light in the hand, making it a joy to perform with. The gently rolled body top creates a natural anchor point for the forearm to rest on, so that you can move freely without any cumbersome protruding edges getting in the way.
Super Wizard HP Neck
As with all Ibanez guitars, the neck has been crafted with delicate care and precision to ensure it is as smooth, fast and easy to play as possible. The 5-piece maple/walnut neck is tonally bright - complementing the rich lower tones produced by the body -, with articulation infused into each and every note across the luxurious rosewood fingerboard.
The Super Wizard HP neck profile ensures an enduring sustain, as well as a super slim playing platform to elegantly perform your fretboard gymnastics on. To create a seamless feel along the neck, the fingerboard has been treated to the Prestige fret edge treatment, so that transitions between frets are effortlessly smooth.
Versatile Ibanez Pickups
The combination of V7 and V8 pickups, puts an incredible amount of power at your fingertips. To strengthen the tonal stability of the S5520K, the pickups feature optimised gain control with emphasis on a sharper, more articulate response. No matter how loud you crank up the output, the S5520K will not turn into a distorted mess, instead it is easier than ever before to achieve searing tones with minimum effort.
Controls are kept nice and simple - Master Volume, Master Tone, 5-way pickup selector switch - so all you need to focus on with your technique and not keeping the guitar in check.
The Gibraltar Standard II bridge offers rock-solid tuning and sustain, no matter how aggressive or frenetic your style. The matching headstock and cosmo black hardware completes the high quality finish.
