OVERVIEW

Deluxe features for an affordable price.

Thru-body staggered stringing provides superior tonal balance, feel, articulation, and sustain. 3-piece set neck. The new Gibraltar III bridge offers simplicity and oodles of sustain. Slim, comfortable quilted maple-topped body with fat mahogany tone. A shorter 25-1/10" scale gives it a different feel from other S guitars. 2 SZ humbuckers. Body and neck binding. Medium frets. Flame inlay at the 12th fret. Great tone.

All SZ Series models have a shorter 25-1/10" scale length for a distinctive, slinky feel. Thru-body staggered stringing delivers superior tonal balance, feel, articulation, and sustain. The 3-piece set-in neck coupled with the Gibralter III bridge offer enhanced sustain, simplicity, longer string life, and playing comfort. They're all armed with tonally versatile SZ1 and SZ2 pickups combined with the Special-5 switching system.

Great Guitar

By Gdog326

from New York

This guitar is fantastic! Especially for the price! Great tone and very, very easy to play. This guitar should be sold at a much higher price. I only wish they sold it in more colors!

My PRS killer

By Big Dave-ti5RN

from Orlando, FL

I'm not an Ibanez man nor am I someone who buys imported models, but the guitar is almost perfect. I picked up the Ibanez SZ by happen chance (after going in for another guitar) and TOTALLY fell in love with it. It sounds wonderful clean and very clear and full. Full: the bass was there for both the neck and bridge positions as well as the high-end. Its neck is actually superior to the PRS I was looking at. I bought it not believing the price. I have since sold off everything but my Ibanez SZ and my custom Warmoth original VIP swamp ash special.

i love this thing.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

this guitar is just awesome. I have one extremely minor, easily overlookable "flaw". the nut could be a bit better. Other than that, this guitar, ***IMO***, is just an awesome value; you have to look really hard to find a guitar in this price range that is neck-thru, and then to find one that is this nice and durable, too, is just great. I really like how it has the two volume knobs, you can get a lot of sounds by blending the volumes of each pickup. Another extremely slight annoyance is that you can basically have all treble or all bass; not much in between. Overall, it's not only the best guitar I have ever owned, but I think its quite possibly one of the best I've ever played.

Cool Guitar

By CradleOfFilth6S6

from Frederick, Maryland

This guitar screams when you play it. It's great for D-tuning and low tuning. This guitar is a great guitar for playing on stage, also with its light-weight and very slender body. With looks and a personality that kills, this guitar is going to forever be my number one choice.

Sweet guitar, especially for the price

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Blows away some guitars twice its cost. Responds very well to both clean and distortion. Very good middle of the road guitar for those interested in screaming leads and bassy rhythms. Previous guitar was a Les Paul, and I beleive at about 1/4 of the cost this guitar can hold its own in comparison. Definitely recommended!!!
