Ibanez S470 QS Reviews
Used. Mint. $600 on EBay including HS case.
I really love this guitar. My playing level went up a notch with the playability / speed of this neck. Also fantastic for fast power chord progressions. Some may not like it if they have played a Strat their whole lives. Once you get used to something, it is hard to change. I play this though a Mashall VS2000 AVT 50 with a Digitech RP 300 for effects and it absolutely rocks. I have not had any problems with the Floyd Rose once it was set up right. The guitar stays in tune. I have heard that with this flavor of FR the edge can wear and become problematic over time with heavy use. This is the downside with the Ibanez Lo TRS II trem (an others out there). Sure, this is not quite a Gibson in terms of tone, but it is more comfortable to play and a bit more flexible in terms of tone. Upgrade the pickups and you may be there. For the price, this axe plays like a dream and fits me very well for the variety of styles I play. Definitely work checking out used, but only if the trem is in very good / new condition.Surf Monster rated this unit on 2001-12-12.
