Fat sound - thin styling.
The Ibanez S320 S Series Electric Guitar has a mahogany body that's thin around the sides for comfort and thick around the pickups for tone. The finish is a unique, open-pore, weathered black. It sports a super strong 3-piece maple neck that's a dream to play. The ZR tremolo bridge uses ball bearings for frictionless arming and fast return. Pickups are rocking Ibanez INF humbuckers.

I bought this guitar a couple weeks ago and it is truly a great guitar. fells great to play because its got a very thin neck and body. extremely light weight and the Floyd rocks. the pickups are ok but it sounds very good through my Peavey but i would recomamend that you change them with EMGs. I will never sell this guitar, and when it breaks, ill get another.
This guitar is simply amazing. This was my first true electric after I picked up guitar 3 years ago, I've owned this for about a year and a half. It has a thin, fast neck that's great for nearly every style of music. The basswood body is absolutely beautiful and also makes it the lightest guitar ever held. The pickups sound great and the 5 way switch makes it very versatile for all sounds and styles, the pickups themselves barely have anything to be wanted, though I may replace mine soon for my own recording needs. It's never given me any bad kind of feedback either! In terms of features, the ZR trem is the best trem I've played on to date and probably is the best out on the market right now, and it stays in tune very well. The thumb adjustment roller on the back is great because if you change strings gages you can adjust the spring tension yourself! The very one thing I could want more is 24 frets, but all in all, this guitar is simply amazing.
I bought this guitar about six months ago and I really like it. Nice thin fast neck, great crunchy sound. This is one heck of a nice guitar.
I recently decided to buy a banjo... yeah yeah say what you must. But I went to look at them when this caught my eye. I ended up stayin at my local music store for 3 hours playin away. This guitar has killer sound and great tone. Its really light in weight too. But in conclusion, I changed my mind and decided to get this guitar instead....
The Ibanez S320 is a work of art! The WB finish along with the naked frets make this instrument simply beautiful! This guitar is NOT flashy. The Infinity pickups are very versitile, you CAN produce whatever sound you need. The ZR locking tremelo is second to none, stays in tune, easy to adjust. The body is very thin and light! The only feature I would like it to have is the "flick of a switch" drop D tuning. This guitar was made for me, I love it!
I waited 5 weeks for this guitar and it is the best guitar ever. I would not trade it for anything. The pickups are crunchy but not to crunchy. THe tremelo gets a nice twirll if you slap the wammy bar and stays in tune reallly good! BEST GITAR EVER!!!
After I returned my gibson les paul studio, I picked this guitar up. The les paul just was crappy, neck was huge, wouldn't stay in tune, and just an awkward guitar to play. this has a perfect neck and the tremolo system is the best in the price range.I also played the RG series by ibanez before I tried this, and it was decent but the tremolo is terrible. After I tried this I only have one complaint: pickups. I love EVERYTHING about this guitar, except the pickups. They are muddy and don't show a lot of clarity in your tone. I am going to be replacing these with seymour duncans (JB/'59). Other then the pickups, this guitar is amazing. Definitely reccomended for all genres of music.
Well I went into my local Ted Brown one thursday and I was looking for a les paul type guitar and the Manager took me to this instead. He had nothing but rave reviews, so I picked it up. Ladies and Gentelman this is so close to perfect that it hovers in your hand.The only thing that is lowsey is the finish. It's very booring, but whatever floats your boat. The stock pups are really good, you can play anything and everything. It has a ZR trem which glides like its on ice. The neck is fast and it's not as thin as the prestige model and thats something i really like. You have uninhibited access to all 22 frets. It's not preety but it'll get the job done and do it it will.
I've had my S320 for a year and a half now and i still love it.. It was great the first tie a picked it up and is even better today. After installing a Bill Lawrence L500 bridge pickup and putting on my favorite Blu Steel strings this thing is so hot and sings with a beautiful tone and cocal like sustain. Infact it impressed the tech that put the new strings on..he was amazed at how great it was with the Bill Lawrence pickup..he remarked that it made it seem much more high-end than a S320 is supposed to be. Anyway.. the only thing I would change is to make it a 24 fret neck instead of 22..but hey that is a pretty monir complaint. Great value for the money. solid long lasting instrumennt of very high quality in my opinion...especially if you spruce it up with your own preferred pickups and strings! A purchase you will not regret.
I have played various versions of the s series, and they all shred. When it came time to buy a new axe the s was a no-brainer. I have always loved the necks on these puppies and the tremolo is awesome. my only gripe is p-ups but thats a problem easily solved. It has a very warm tone so swapping the p-ups with something bright will make it scream. Its a must have for any lead player.
I bought this guitar 3 weeks ago and its a very good guitar. But I have problems with mine which is yet to be resolved, like the trem bar holder is loose and it rattles, which is annoying, and mine came with a few dents.The pickups on this guitar are surprisingly good! Really responsive and balanced, capable of retaining individual string clarity. But I'm changing them into either dmz evolution or SD sh6 (on bridge) and dmz PAF PRo (on neck)The ZR trem is really one of the best trem functions out there, it never goes out of tune and I could do crazy stuff on it in a breeze.also, the neck on this guitar is so comfortable, it goes to low action with no buzzing.Overall great guitar. Although if you have more cash, I'd go with a higher series model.
I recently played this guitar in a music store and this thing is awesome. its light weight and thin. It has a really good heavy sound and the zr tremolo is perfect, it stays intune perfectly after dive bombs. The pickups are pretty decent but if you got EMG's it would be a different story. I highly reccomend this guitar and I plan on buying one as soon as possible
I'm not usually an Ibanez person, but my friend bought one of these and it is AMAZING. I drive 30 miles out of town to his house several times a week just to play this beast. I didn't know a neck this smooth existed, and the trem blows any I've played out of the water. Plus, it's feather light. You will not find a better deal at this, or any, price.
I have played three differentIbanez guitars in the last year. Each of them was nearly perfect right out of the box. One of my students got this model (S320 black) and it's great! I'm going to get one too. The vibrato system is the best one ever designed to date... smooth, quiet, and stays in tune no matter what! The only way this guitar could be better is with a fancier finish, (that's what the prestige line is for)and an adjustable radius on the bridge. As it is, the radius perfectly fits this neck. Pickups are decent and the flat finish doesn't show sweat or fingerprints like shiny finishes. At just under five-bills, this is an awesome professional guitar at an hobbyist's price! Only gripe is the cheap switch. To replace it, you have to order a really short switch because of the skinny body. Other than that, it is ready to rock!
I've been playing guitar for almost a year and i practice everyday for 3-5 hours, out of all the guitars I've owned and played with, this is the most awesome guitar in its price range, whether your a beginner or another Eddie Van Halen this is a great buy, great action! you can bend the string virtually anywhere on the board! whether your playing blues, metal, or classic rock, this is your best pick.
This guitar is awesome, the neck is thin and small, your fingers practicly float over the strings, the action is real low, the zr tremelo is smooth and fluent, even though the pickups are stock, they sound amazing, good tone and crunch, the thin body is good too, I can play it for hours withouth getting sore from it, very light weight, its durable too. Ive dropped it several times and hit the headstock on mulitple things, but yet no chips in it, and since the body is flat black you dont need to worry about nasty scratches showing up, great guitar for every kind of music.
I picked up this guitar from trading with a friend. I traded my epiphone g-400 limited edition for it. Im glad I did. This guitar is very nice. The neck is fat and thin. Its 22 frets but I dont use past 20 anyway. Its very VERY light. The zero point trem system make tuning and changin strings very simple for a floating bridge. Its well balanced. The pick-ups are kinda weak but nothing a new pick-ups wont fix. Overall, a very good guitar for anyone.
This guitar is a fantastic deal. I was looking for a two humbucker, mahogany bodied, with little or no fretboard markers guitar. I would have loved it if it had 24 frets, but the scale, and jumbo frets feel perfect. Also, I got this guitar because I wanted to try the ZR tremolo. It's very smooth, and seems to hold tunning very well. My only complaint is the finish on the back of the neck. Certain spots feel rough to the touch, as if they missed areas with the finish. In truth, this is a pretty bad quality control issue. But hey, if it goes bad I'll just buy another one at that price. I do think it's a let down from a company like Ibanez.
I have never owned a Guitar with A Floating bridge before this one. Now I don't think I'll ever go without one. I had terrible luck with Floyds and had given up on them completely. The ZR Bridge on this guitar has made me do a 180... I LOVE this guitar. It is Super light, The neck is great and really fast, the fit and finish are perfect, the action is fantstic, and the ZR tremolo... well it is the star of the show. It is ROCK SOLID for tuning... Once you get the strings nice and stretched, it takes an act of congress to get this out of tune... You can also do a varity of bends in combination with open strings on this trem... no such luck with a regular floyd(at least not for me.) Aside from all that it is a great looking guitar as well. Simple yet elegant in form and design and and devestatingly brutal in tone... I have heard that the INF Pickups were not that good.. I'm afraid that I just don't agree. They sound great to me and are capable of some of the MEANEST Pinch harmonics I've ever heard, and the 5-way Switching system is capable of some very good and unique sounds. Don't make the mistake of thinking this is a "Shredder" only guitar. It is very very versitile. (though it does Excel at shredding:)If there are any negatives, it would be that the ZR Trem is a bit more complex than a standard Floyd and it has to be setup right to perform correctly. But if you read the manual it's not that hard to grasp.
This guitar impressed me, I had heared of the ZR tremolo and mechanically it functions like a floyd but the feeling is equal to a kahler, It stays in tune very well and on a strap or sitting down it's perfectly balanced so even with its slim body it's still not neck heavy like a SG, the stock pickups on this guitar are pretty good but when I get it I'm definitly putting in some EMG's I just wish they put 24 frets on this guitar because this guitar was clearly made for shredding o they dropped the ball there but no big deal buy it!
