The pinnacle of shred science.
This Ibanez S5470 Prestige is the electric guitar other metal-minded guitars will be judged against. 24 frets of wicked fast neck, ZR2 bridge with ZPS3 spring system, and an advanced tonal versatility give the S5470 guitar an edge over most guitars in its class.
Heavy mahogany tone without the heavy mahogany weight. Thin around the edges for comfort, fat around the pickups and bridge for tone. S Prestige model features HGD1 Hot Grinder neck humbucker pickup, ST1 Short Tracer mid single-coil pickup, and HGD2 Hot Grinder bridge humbucker pickup. The Hot Grinder humbuckers are hot, yet sharp enough to hear the pick bite the strings. The Short Tracer has a strong magnet that provides full output in low profile setting.
5-piece neck with Prestige finishing for increased playing comfort, Gotoh precision tuning machines and deluxe Prestige case. Made in Japan by Ibanez's best craftsmen.
The ZR2 (Zero Resistance) bridge with the ZPS3 spring system returns you to "zero" — center point — after each use of the tremolo arm, even in the case of string breakage! No more wondering if you're back in tune or worse, knowing you're not! One more way to provide more dive-bombing freedom with less hassle.

Comments about Ibanez S5470 Prestige Electric Guitar:
I have the black burst, the overall appearance is dark brown, and glossy. The color pretty closely matches the rosewood fretboard - nice. Everything about the case, the way the guitar fits in it, and the guitar, oozes quality. Surprisingly thin at the edges, but feels dense. Mine has a bit of a vertical flame thing going, you can see the 3D-ness of it by rocking the guitar back and forth. Subtle, but beautiful. The neck seems typical of Ibanez, the only other guitar I've owned which might compete for neck feel is a Carvin. But the Ibanez wins between these two in tone, I can't find anything I don't like here. Of course Fenders, Gibsons etc. have their niche, this one's niche might be called 'smooth high gain lead soloing'. Have read some folks complain about sustain with this guitar, but I don't have an issue with it at all. Guess it depends on your style, and how much gain you use. The whammy has a slightly different feel than others I've used, I'm not a master at it (like Vai!), it feels solid and serves my purposes. Bottom line, I have way too many guitars as it is, but still am having trouble keeping myself from adding another blue or red one of these.
