This bad dad is ready to shred. The S-series is in many ways the quintessential wild Ibanez, and all of those features are present on this S470DX.
First off, the neck on this animal is Ibanez’ Wizard II model, and it is designed to play fast. It’s spec’d with a long radius, thin “D” shape, aggressive string spacing, and a rosewood fingerboard with swung-line inlaid fret markers. The pressure plates are missing from the locking nut, but are easily replaced (and the instrument is playable without them).
The body is made of solid wood arched on the front and back and contouring down to a super-thin edge, making it small and easy to handle. The finish is a textured metallic blue that looks great and is a fun change from more traditional paint jobs.
The bridge is an Ibanez ZR Trem system that is in good setup and repair, though it is missing the tremolo arm. The pickups are stock, with a simple volume-tone-5-way switch control scheme.
Also included is a SKB Freedom molded hard-shell case.
