OVERVIEW

The poplar burl top is a feast for your eyes; the HSH pickup complement produces a tonal feast for your ears.

The S770PB is part of Ibanez's cutting-edge S Series which 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. It has a WIzard III maple neck, Ibanez's thin, flat, and fast, yet strong and sturdy neck which offers unlimited playability for demanding players and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for wide tonal range. Another great feature is the Edge-Zero II Tremolo lower-profile bridge which adds to your playing comfort and has a stud lock function for more stable tuning. The S770PB's Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation.

Case sold separately.

      Over close to 20 years now I've always been a Strat player. (I've owned 2 Gibson Les Pauls and 1 Tele, too.) But I recently wanted something with a locking trem and more suited to heavier music. Enter Ibanez. Now, I never, EVER thought I'd own an Ibanez for some pretty superficial reasons. I had them defined as something of a poser's guitar; more flash than substance. MAN, was I wrong. When I started looking for my new guitar, I looked at everything with a locking trem and just kept not being impressed. Charvel, Jackson, ESP...you name it. I kept coming away either unimpressed or thinking it was too much money...except for some of the Ibanez guitars I looked at. After a lot of back and forth, I came up with the ideas that (1) the Prestige series was a bit more than I wanted to spend for something new to my collection and style (2) the RG Series was not quite what worked for me (3)and the "S" series was right up my alley. I went online, checked out the various mdoels in the "S" line, and ordered the S770PB sight unseen from Musicians Friend. If I didn't like it, I'd return it. Having said that...You are NEVER getting this guitar from me. First, I LOVE the understated natural finish. The Poplar top and the Mahogany body are really something special and the fit and finish are just shocking for a guitar under $1000. The neck is substantial, smooth and instantly made me feel more nimble. Beautiful frets and binding, excellent attention to detail all the way around. The pickups were the big surprise; I'd read some less than flattering comments on the INF series but, really, I'm fairly impressed. I might get around to changing them, but they sound very solid so far. The hardware is impressive; I like the "cosmo black" finish and everything works very smoothly. If you're in the market for something like this, skip everything else in this price range and even one or to above it. The S770PB is a stunner by any measurement you want to use. Right out of the box it was ready to go and I could not be happier with my decision. Ibanez, I owe you and apology and somehow I don't think this is the end of our relationship.

      This is a beautiful guitar. However, there is a good size gap where the neck meets the body. And there is a shoddy shim inserted to reduce the gap -- it is very visible and noticeable. Because of that, this guitar seems to be refurbished and not new. MF gave me a meager refund for this issue. I think it would have been fair to refund more for such poor quality control and workmanship. I don't plan to purchase anything from MF again.

        Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

        I've had this guitar for a while and it's safe to say that I absolutely love it. I bought it used and had some issues with the neck screws being stripped, but after that was fixed, it's been fantastic. I use this guitar for metalcore and I have heavy gauge strings on it tuned to drop C, but with the pickups, the tone options are endless. You can use this guitar for rock and blues too easily. I usually keep it on the bridge pickup, but you can use the neck pickup for a bluesy tone and the middle pickup give the guitar a really interesting bass-like tambre that sounds awesome with stuff like Breaking Benjamin riffs. It's also beautiful with the burl top, but I would recommend looking at the ACTUAL GUITAR before you buy it to see if you like the pattern, as each one is unique.
        tl;dr Amazing guitar.

            Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

            Best guitar I've played in my life. I've played for almost ten years, and had world class guitars in my hands more than a few times, and this guitar beats all.(I work as a Luthier when I'm not playing, and this guitar is so easy to set up it's almost comical.) My Les Paul and Modified Telecaster can't even begin to keep up with this guitar. I've had a 770PB for about two years now, and the one thing I've done is added a Dimarzio "Mo' Joe" Joe Satriani Pickup. I did this because the factory Infinity series bridge pickup wasn't quite clear enough for my taste, and lacked the clear harmonics my playing requires, but the "Mo' Joe" fixed that. I would also highly recommend getting the matching Ibanez Hard Case to go with this guitar.

                Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

                Please allow me to take a moment letting you know the other guitars I have. This will enable you to know the guitars used in my decision making process on the Ibanez S770PB. Having a small studio I have to keep several guitars on hand with different sounds. They consist of; Gibson LP Classic, Gibson LP double-cutaway, Fender American Deluxe Strat & Tele, Fender Jimmy Vaughn, Fender Custom Vintage 1972 tele semi hollow body, Epihone pre China LP, and a PRS Custom 10 top McCarty. Each guitar has it's place, and one cannot replace another. The Ibanez S770PB was puchased due to not having a guitar that leans to the heavy distortion sound. Not only is this guitar well made, I see no need to replace any of the pick ups. If you tend to follow the rest, then you will never purchase a guitar that others will tell you to replace certain components. The price of this guitar is more than half the cost of my Fender Custom Vintage 1972, 1/4 of the cost of my PRS McCarty, and less than any of my others. Nevertheless, I feel that it can hold it's own with much higher dollar amount guitars. This is a pleasure to play, and is able to produce quality sounds. I would pay twice the amount for the S770PB if something happen to mine.

                Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

                This really is a great guitar!! The Poplar Burl top looks great!! Although the neck isnt as slim as the Wizard III, it stills feels great to play, and is still nice and fast!! The 5 way selector with the HSH PUP setup is really nice....gives you a wide variety of tone! The body is very thin, so the guitar is very lightweight, which is great. I changed the strings to 10's which in my opinion sound alot better, and will also be changing out the PUPs....the stock ones arent bad at all, but I think some better ones would really bring this guitar to life!! The trem is really nice, and is very easy to adjust with the knob in the back....which made changing to the 10's VERY EASY!! On a side note, even with stretching the strings, I had a hard time keeping the 9's in tune...when I switched to the 10's, everything has been fine!! I have 3 other electrics (2 schecters and a PRS) and an acoustic....although I actually really like all the guitars I have, I find myself grabbing this one a lil more than the others. Try it out, today!!!

                Really Nice Guitar

                By JohnZwengel

                from Nashville, TN

                Comments about Ibanez S770PB Electric Guitar:

                I was looking for a new guitar, and I always enjoyed playing S model Ibby's, and I've been looking for a natural/flat finish since playing a friend's Collen. Set up was good out of the box. Intonation was close but not perfect. There was a minor dead spot about 15 fret. But I replaced the factory strings with 10's, so I had to redo the set up anyway. After the string switch, the guitar plays perfect, and holds tune very well. The neck is perfect, a little thicker than I expected from an Ibanez Shred Monster, but in a really good way. The thin body makes it a joy to play standing up, but it tends to walk down your leg sitting down. The top is gorgeous. There's a little blemish in the rosewood at the 24th, but it's so small I didn't notice until I got it home. Stock sound wasn't bad at all. Pups had a nice high end, good harmonics, solid mid-range, but the bottom's kinda thin. I installed a set of Duncans - Alternative 8(B) & Jazz(N), and it sounds fantastic. I can hang with the Tele killers here in Nashville, yet get grinding high gain drives and creamy neck pickup sustain with better mids than a Les Paul or PRS. (Maple neck effect?) Another minor issue is with the hardware. The ZR Trem is great, but there is an odd issue with the low e string fine tuner screw walking out. I think it's from my forearm rubbing on it when I'm not resting my hand on the bridge. This is a real bother. The trem arm nut likes to come loose too. But many trem arms have done to me over the years, so it's no big deal. The Cosmo Black finished metal is really nice. Overall it's a really nice guitar for the money. Like most guitars, it needs pick ups, and the set up needs a little tweaking. But it plays like a dream, makes me play better, and looks gorgeous too. My only concern is that fine tuner screw coming out. Hopefully, I'll make a subconscious adjustment, because otherwise I love playing this guitar!

                I already knew what I was getting with this guitar, and cant say enough good things about it. Only thing is, the ZR Trem is somewhat unresponsive with the extra set of springs in it designed to bring it back in tune. !st thing I did was remove them, and it's great.

                I am quite poor, I am a bassist for our church worship team and thus have had to buy a bass and a bass amp. I made the decision to stick to Ibanez guitars/basses and Line 6 amplifiers, so when I browse the local music store I usually stick to playing Ibanez. When I saw this new Ibanez guitar I fell in love with the guitar's mere natural look. I picked it up. Wow! Light weight, and very comfy in my fat ol' bassist hands. I sat down, and I played my little song idea of three chords, and wow...it just rocked. Thats all I can really say. As much as I would like to tell you how the action and the caliber of the radius is, I don't really know what that means. All I know is that this guitar played amazingly for rhythm, and later on I found out it rocked for soloing. It delivered a nice rock sound with a jazzy and bluesy punch behind it. I'm sure it is fully capable of blasting heads off with the proper settings, but I did not want to, and I did not need to in order to make it sound great. Price tag was what got me. A salesman came by and asked if I was buying it, and I said no, it was too much. He said good, a lot of us here want to buy it.
