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.

A stunning exotic body top with beautiful natural binding on the top and side.
Our luthiers' insane attention to detail is evidenced by the Premium's hand-rolled fret edges. This slow, demanding process makes for a smooth, fast playing neck.
The stainless steel frets are known for their bright tone, and they add player-friendly features, such as long durability and a smoothness to bend on.
An 11-piece Wizard neck, which features a slim grip shape made of Panga Panga, Walnut, Maple, and Purpleheart, contributes to the neck's extreme rigidity and increases sustain.
Panga Panga features a beautiful wood grain which produces a tight low and mid range with a sharp attack on high end.
The luminescent side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
The RG10xx/S10xx feature an American Basswood body back and a uniquely grained Poplar Burl top wich produces a warm and smooth tonal character from top to bottom.
The DiMarzio® Air Norton™, True Velvet™ and Tone Zone® pickups offer depth, warmth and rich dynamics when combined with the 5-way pickup switch.
The Edge-Zero II tremolo bridge w/ZPS3Fe provides exceptional tuning stability, precise intonation adjustment, and playing comfort.
The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.
