2001 Ibanez S470QS




The S-body was one of the more unique bodies found when it came out in the late 80’s Originally called the Sabre, the S470 body is probably the thinnest body ever made, measuring less than an inch or so at the edge (shown Left), but is carved to a normal depth in the middle  Features of the S470QS (Quilted Sapele) include very thin Wizard II

neck, mahogany body with quilted sapele veneer on top, 22 jumbo frets, Lo TRS II locking tremolo, bound neck with wave inlays, HSH pickups

with AH1 neck – AS1 middle – AH2 bridge, Cosmo Black hardware, metal pickup rings, 5-way pickup selector, and Lo-Pro Edge tremolo (Shown Right)

ince the 80’s and the peak of shredding, Ibanez was the leader in building metal axes and had more hot players in their stable than any other maker This Cosmo Black hardware is notorious for wearing quickly as shown in the pics, but otherwise this guitar is very clean in all regards, with perfect frets and a superb set up The tone of this mahogany body is thick, with a very even frequency response, well suited for virtually all styles of music These are some of the finest metal/rock guitars ever made, in terms of comfort, tone, and playability, due in part to the easy access joint which is a very thin heel that doesn’t use a neck plate. Like the Japan factory that preceded this, Ibanez Korean production is first rate and allows them to build quality guitars at a significant savings Just $325(SOLD-Mike G 10/17/16) for this beauty Includes original manuals, trem bar, Allen wrench, and free gigbag or substitute Ibanez Pro Deluxe case (pict below) for $65
