The cutting edge of Ibanez design, the S series continues to be a marvel of form and function. 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.

Legendary Super-thin, ultra-playable neck with road-tested durability.
The tight grain of Ebony provides a smooth, dense playing surface that produces a tight low-end with the quick response needed for metal.
Through close collaboration between Ibanez and DiMarzio®-Fusion Edge pickups have been engineered to produce a powerful, distinctive tone with a crisp, cutting high end, and a tight, compressed bottom end, minus any muddy mid-range.
Flipping the switch chooses between a pickups full output-for a more modern voice, or a lower output-to provide a more vintage-like tone.
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. Smooth surface is designed to maximize playing comfort.
The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.
The Sure Grip III knobs are designed for precise control with nonslip functionality, along with smooth and classic looks.
