The Ibanez S series first appeared in 1987. Ever since, it has changed in appearance and function to represent the cutting edge of Ibanez design. Famous for its lightweight carved mahogany body, the S can take a beating while still providing the resonance of guitars twice its size. The S series also comes equipped with the ZR tremolo system, a smooth ball bearing tremolo that makes every subtle nuance of whammy bar use come alive. The 7-string version of the Zero Resistance tremolo found on the S7420 features the same ball-bearing based system for precision and friction-free action.
- The original and famous Ibanez S body
- Heavy mahogany tone without the heavy mahogany weight
- 24-fret Wizard II necks
- 7-string S7420 model
- ZR Zero Resistance trem with ball bearings offers smooth and stable arming
Zero Resistance technology, yet another Ibanez tremolo improvement, replaces standard knife-edge pivots with a ball-bearing based pivot joint, which provides greater tuning stability.
The ZR tremolo uses a ball-bearing based system for precision and friction-free smooth action.
This unique system stabilizes the bridge and insures tuning stability by consistently returning the tremolo to the center point (or zero point). In addition to the usual tremolo springs, the Zero Point System features two additional springs which insures the bridge's return to the center point.
The Zero Point system adjustment can be quickly set by hand-there's no need for a hex wrench.
Zero Resistance technology, yet another Ibanez tremolo improvement, replaces standard knife-edge pivots with a ball-bearing-based pivot joint, which provides greater stability. Finally, a locking tremolo that stays in tune when a string breaks!
Just unscrew the built-in intonation adjustment tool from the base and screw it into the bottom of each saddle for quick adjustments.
The locking bolt is offset from the center of the saddle, which allows easy access to the bolt without loosening the strings.
