Beautiful, comfortable, powerful.
The Ibanez S620EX Electric Guitar has a mahogany body that's thin around the sides for comfort and thick around the pickups for tone. It's topped with a beautiful, quilted maple top — great for looks and tone. 3-piece Wizard II neck. Two Ibanez "Designed by EMG" humbuckers sport plenty of power. The ZR tremolo bridge uses ball bearings for frictionless arming and fast return.

This is a beatuiful guitar, every time I see it I am amazed. But playing it, for me at least, was a little bit of a dissappointment, I've never understood the term "stock pickups" I thought you picked up upper end guitars, and they sounded great out right out of the box, but the bridge pickup in this pup is quite weak, and sort of generic sounding, the neck pickup is also weak, but sounds AMAZING clean, and when playing solos or shreading, neither pickup has much sustain, and are not very good for harmonics. My band, History's End, plays in drop C, and setting the bridge took no more than 3 minutes compared to my damien-FR which would take at least 45 minutes. The fact that its not a neck through doesn't bother me (though it would be nice) since you can reach all the way up to the 22 fret (it would also be nice if there were 24 frets. Don't get me wrong for the price this guitar's looks playability, and sound are awesome. The only reason that I dislike the pickups is because I desire a very specific sound, and these didn't deliver, I'll change them and write another review.
i just got this guitar today after playing a bunch of different guitars. i played gibsons and fenders and i love this one sooo much more. the playability is amazing and it looks beautiful to boot. the picture on the site doesnt do it any justice at all. it also kinda has a greenish tint to it. it sounds great with the stock pickups but i think that im gonna change to the zakk wylde pickups when i get the money. if you want a great guitar for a good price, this is the way to go!
The ax is not mine, but one of my students owns it....and since it blows my beloved and modded Les Paul out of the pond, I'm using his Ibanez all the time!Features - Very cool. Stereotypes and myths say thin, bolt-on guitars just don't sound cool. FALSE!! Having played both the Ibanez and my Les Paul, I can tell you that the Ibanez is fat and powerful as any musician can wish. Only wish it had 24 frets! And the ZR tremolo is very cool to. Smooth, versatile, very easy to setup. It's the best, period. An original Floyd Rose and the Kahler together wouldn't be half as good as the ZR.Quality - Build quality is excellent, but setup is a bit lousy (I am very picky anyway). Intonation was a bit off and frets were not properly leveled causing buzz, however, that was very easy to fix. With the ZR, I can intonate in 15 minutes, not in 1 hour as it usually takes with other floating briges.Value - Excellent. I dare you to find something better for the prizeOverall - Incredible. Thin, so that you can hold it for days on your back. Fat sounding enough to beat my Gibson Les Paul! It looks cool to. In pics it looks -dull grey-, but in person it looks like a deep, dark green. -Get one, and you'll see why my student is so happy and he keeps ignoring my Les Paul!
When I clicked the checkout button I got super excited and I got butterflies. It was hard to sleep knowing that I was only a week away from owning this sweet baby. Many people say never blind buy a guitar or in other words buy something that you've never tried before. I live on Guam and we only have like 2 music stores. The store that carries Ibanez has like 4 RGs to try and that's it. So in my case I guess this was my only choice. All in all BEAUTIFUL FAT AND RICH SOUNDING GUITAR! Pickups are nice, but I'm planning on getting Dime Pups or Zakk Wylde Pups. It feels very NAIZ(BORAT!) Super fast neck and the design and finish is a real LOOKER! I'm happy with my purchase. BUY IT! You won't regret it.
this guitar is truly beautiful, much nicer than the picture implies. many people say they have a hard time with the bridge, but if youve actually used a floating trem before then this one is actually a breeze the setup and play! it also stays in tune very well. the shape is magnificent, very comfortable. it contours your body very well. the neck is fast and slim as well, but not to slim, like some other Ibanez's ive played. i owned a Ibanez SA series before this and they both are my two favorite guitars. One of my favorite things about this guitar is that you can play any style of music on it and it handles accordingly! if you buy this you will not be disapionted, i promise.
This guitar is incredible. You get a great, fat, mahogony tone without the super heavy-weight. The neck is lightning quick which is great for those intricate passages and shredding solos. Pickups were pretty awesome, but I replaced 'em with Deactivators and this thing just screams now. Great looks, too. Check it out if you're a speedy player.
If you are a metalhead, buy this guitar. It has great speed, think neck and smooth as hell ZR Trem. The tone wasnt unbelievable, but it wasnt half bad for stock pickups. Nice full sound on neck position, but no twang what-so-ever. I, not beeing a metal head, dont really fit this guitar, but it is still great, just not very versitile. I kept snapping .09's so i had to switch to .10's, which wasnt a problem because of the spring adjustment on the back which is a great feature. So basicaly if you play metal by this guitar. If you arent, then buy a parker.
Dude i have an s470dxqm and i cant wait until i get this. the only downside is the bridge on this guitar. it has the same one as my ibaneze and so far i find the metal is brittle and the action can get screwd up pretty easy. other than that, its a sweet guitar.
