I have owned 2 of these. One of which was the 90s version in a weird quilted green top and now these 'reissues' I say reissue because I remember them not being available for a while and now they brought'em back. Or something to that nature anyway.



UTILIZATION

This is your go to shredder 7 string guitar on a decent budget. Neck is thin and fast, the S shape allows you to go up to the upper frets without some huge block thing in the way. The Trem is there and generally stable enough for you to do the crazy pull ups and dives and whammy tricks and what not.

Sound-wise...Not too sure...might need a pickup swap.

SOUNDS

Ok to the important part. Ibanez has always had a history of making horrible factory pickups. I have owned and played many Ibanez guitars and have 99.9% of the time changed the stock pickups to something else. There has always been that issue with Ibanez for me, I don't know why that is, and I don't think I'm the only one either. They just can't seem to get it right with their factory pickups. I just don't get it!

SO, if you want to sound like your favorite 7 string metal bands, look into investing some money in the pickups. Stock, it will not sound as good. I put EMG 707s in these and never looked back. Great pickups with a great, thick, clear and mouldable sound. By that I mean, depending on what gear you use, EMGs almost always sound good with every piece of equipment from the start, and easily too. I don't mean hours long of tweaking, just a few seconds to maybe 2 minutes tops and you'll be in the ball park or even better, tone-wise to where you want to be. So since I don't care for the stock pickups I have to unfortunately rate the sound quite low.

The cleans were actually quite good for stock pickups but the distortion was fuzzy and unclear as per usual.

OVERALL OPINION

I love the S series guitars. I think it's the best shaped guitar created since buttered-bread. They're thin, and comfortable on the body and comfortable to get up to the upper frets. I DO wish they had fixed bridge versions of the S like back in the early 90s or so cause not everybody's in the whammy thing and I'm getting way too used to blocking trems these days. Though I do use the floating bridge from time to time I find myself blocking the trem a lot more often.

Overall though, great guitar, the neck is great. Really slim and comfortable, feels like a 6 string guitar even though it's a 7 string! That's how comfy it is!

No need to return to its characteristics. I wanted an ultra fine sword cut, mild, a handle with wide and super nice frets to learn, and especially the tremolo zr which is for me the best vibrato with the one installed on vigiers (but not the same budget). This is my second seven strings having tried a dung harley benton few weeks that tended to detune every five minutes.

UTILIZATION

The handle is a treat. Fine, beautifully finished, the frets are exceptional. It taillee to shred. Super flat and comfortable, it clears in a irrepressible attraction.

Since I have it, I hardly touched over to my other guitars. And yet I have some super fun one to play. Originally the Ibanez pickups are gentillets and versatile. Not enough kind to me. We'll talk lowest.

SOUNDS

A seven-string, we do not buy for gypsy jazz and onward christophe mae. Originally, the Ibanez pickups have liked me. But I could test the guitar stephan forte during a masterclass and I have been conquered by the black winter. So I mounted a pair of these beasts. The result exceeded my expectations. For 600 €, I have a chainsaw competition. These pickups are made for this kind of scratching and gives a scope and warmth to distos while being straight and clean. It's really a revelation. The electronics (knobs and wiring) were particularly well realized and well crafted. I wonder if it's always like that original ...

OVERALL OPINION

Skeptical and very often highly disappointed by the high-end home Ibanez overrated and shamefully expensive (ah ah the models signature, which enculade) sometimes suggesting that some musicians would be willing to crack their ELP to be empty their wallet and brainwash I must admit that I am amazed. I did not have such a majestic sound while keeping an outfit agree flawless, especially after being snatched me the hair on heaps of pink floyd recalcitrant (especially the raw versions in Ibanez, gender lo pro caca boudin on my js 100). Here nay. We can emulate as a psychopath, nothing moves. This is the best investment I've made so far. All metalheads must test the torque Ibanez saber and Nazgul microphones and / or black winter home seymour duncan. If I could, I would advise every metalhead has some seasoned test this combination on engl powerball or triple correct history to understand what happens to him.
