Ibanez's Prestige series guitars are known as stellar performers in the arena of shred-ability and monster rock tone. The Ibanez S5521Q Prestige is another great axe that'll improve your shred-game and add tonal variety with its arsenal of pickup combination settings. Your V7 and V8 medium-high output humbuckers can rock in five different combinations via the five-setting pickup selector blade, and the S5521Q's sleek gold hardware will add flair to your on-stage persona. The Super Wizard HP neck will bring your playing to new speeds once you feel how comfortably your fingers fit between its two octaves of 24 frets.
More Combinations for your PickupsYour IBZ 7V and IBZ 8V humbuckers really drive home a rich and full tone that's not restricted to just metal. Five different combinations of these babies will get you rock, metal, and even a dark, somewhat jazzy or bluesy tone to suit your styles. Though it may look visually ideal for a metal band, the S5521Q Prestige can pull a range of genre tricks -- making it a great pal to have in the studio for recording sessions.
Secure Hardware that Steals EyesComfort and durability are the names of the game with the S5521Q Prestige's Gibraltar Standard II bridge. Its low profile gives it a comfortable, non-invasive feel as it keeps your playing secure and in tune. Though its profile is low, you won't have to worry about any unwanted string buzz while you're taking advantage of this guitar's incredible action. Your bridge, tuners, and tone and volume knobs all shimmer in eye-catching gold. Security and visual aesthetics make this guitar a beauty to see and a pleasure to play.
Dark and Solid Resonance and Great FeelYou'll get a dark and rich sound out of this axe's maple-topped mahogany body -- a tone that shakes and soothes in lingering sustain. The five-piece maple/walnut neck adds incredible playability to choice tonewoods in a mix for the perfect combination of feel and sound. Your Super Wizard High Performance neck will leave the competition in the dust once your hand glides over this baby's comfortable span of 24 jumbo frets -- smoothed over with the Prestige fret edge treatment. Your hands will be glued to this guitar once you try it out for the first time.
