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.
With metal and nothing but metal in mind, we modded and tweaked until we got to the heaviest sounding metal axes ever built. For the ultimate in playability we took our legendary super-thin, ultra-playable Wizard neck, and upped the ante to Nitro Wizard - as fast and comfortable but with added road-tested durability. Whether it's a 6, 7 or 8-string, every Iron Label axe is matched perfectly with American-made EMG® or DiMarzio® pickups. Purposefully Spartan, you won't find a feature here that doesn't contribute directly to rattling bones or waking the dead.
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.
