From headstock to output jack, every inch of the Ibanez S6521Q Prestige solidbody electric guitar is optimized for high-performance playability and tone. The five-piece neck is reinforced with titanium rods for a lifetime of reliable performance, and the player-favorite Super Wizard HP neck profile plays as fast as ever. Your fretting hand will fly thanks to the bound rosewood fretboard's Prestige fret-edge treatment, which rounds them off for maximum speed and comfort. Factor in a combination of DiMarzio pickups chosen for maximum tonal range and sonic intensity, and the Ibanez S6521Q Prestige is ready for any gig or studio session.
The S6521Q's super-fast Super Wizard HP neck lets you execute lightning-fast runs, arpeggios, and hammer-ons with silken ease, while still providing enough substance for comfortable chording. The feel of this neck is greatly enhanced by the Prestige fret-edge treatment, an extra step Ibanez takes to ensure maximum playing comfort and long-term playability. The process essentially rounds the fret ends much more precisely than is possible by hand filing. The S6521Q will feel like its neck has been lovingly played for years, right out of the factory case.
There's no denying the massive range of tone you can get out the Ibanez Prestige S6521Q's combo of DiMarzio pickups. First, there's the DiMarzio Tone Zone at the bridge, a hot humbucker with a super-wide dynamic range. It's a perfect complement to the S6521Q's DiMarzio Air Norton at the neck, which is deep, warm, and remarkably clean. The guitarists here at Music Experience love this ultra-flexible pickup combination.
Ibanez's S Prestige series is filled with top instruments — all featuring the famous S body style, with high-quality components through and through. With the S6521Q, you get a well-balanced, resonant mahogany body plus a lightning-fast Super Wizard HP neck, dressed with the Prestige fret-edge treatment. Factor in DiMarzio pickups (a popular after-market upgrade for many players), and the acclaimed low-profile Edge tremolo, and it's clear the S6521Q is a premium instrument for serious players.
The cutting edge of Ibanez design, the S series continues to be a marvel of form and function. Its signature body shape - sculpted, lightweight, and mahogany - is stronger and more musically responsive than guitars weighing twice as much. The S series is still a rock 'n' roll version of a quick, graceful, and potentially lethal weapon.
The neck for shredders - 17mm thickness at 1st fret and 19mm at the 12th.
A pair of high-output DiMarzio® Air Norton™ and The Tone Zone® pickups offers a huge sound with a broad dynamic range and infinite sustain.
The Gibraltar Standard II is a simple fixed bridge that was designed to unify with the guitar's body and provide optimal transfer of each string's vibration. Smooth surface is designed to maximize playing comfort.
