Great purchase ! Look no further smooth right out of the box ! The finish and look of the guitar is simply beautiful I picked up the blackberry burst and impressed. Great action very smooth with very good sustain , the body is very thin with great sound and If you have small hands perfect neck a quality guitar you don’t have to buy a 1k guitar this is it ! I own several and this is my go to, fun to play and sounds great !

"Almost perfect playability, good tone"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This guitar has just... awesome feel. There are other guitars within $100 of this guitar that also feel just as good, but this one doesn't feel as cheap and is still the lightest that I've played at this price point. The finish is also great and what initially drew me to it, but after playing it I was fully sold. The pickups are pretty good. Nothing special but they do have a nice heavy sound, and can always be replaced. (though it's not necessary, they are still quite good).

I bought this in ocean fade blue and wow is it stunning. The set up was right on with low action. This plays better then 1000.oo guitars I own. It plays amazing, sounds great! Well worth the money!

"Awesome."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Played this guitar at Guitar Center before I order it and very smooth. Notes resonate, pickups are descent, and quality craftsmanship. The delivery process was quick and nicely packaged. The finish is superb, beautiful wash color like wearing a pair of jeans. God is good.

"Not very good"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Purchased this In Jan.2021, looked great, very light. Have been very busy and just now being able to get around to testing and playing it. 1st, 2nd 3rd fret are terrible and pretty much dead. The tone pot, knob is bent and scrapes. The finish of the frets along the neck is very poor. Currently the Ibanez S521 is unplayable. Will defiantly think twice before ordering another guitar from zZounds. I understand that this is an inexpensive guitar, but at the very least it should be somewhat playable.
