Ibanez's marvel of form and function, the S Series, continues to evolve for today's player.

S521 features a Jatoba fretboard with jumbo frets. Lurking beneath the S Series' graceful 3-D shape is Meranti specifically chosen for S Series instruments. Light enough amaze in terms of comfort, heavy enough to provide the tone and sustain that players expect from the S Series. As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Wizard III neck is yet another achievement in playability, providing the kind of comfort that translates to responsiveness and speed. Proprietary Quantum pickups round out this metal mammoth with an entire palette of thick, distorted tone textures that retain high-end articulation. A simple, yet solid fixed bridge provides stable, dependable tuning and accurate intonation.

  • Body: Meranti
  • Neck type: Wizard III mapel
  • Fretboard: Jatoba
  • Frets: Jumbo frets
  • Pickups: Quantum

Jatoba fretboard
Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.

Wizard III maple neck
Ibanez's thin, flat, and fast, yet strong and sturdy, Wizard neck offers unlimited playability for demanding players, and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for wide tonal range.

Quantum pickups
The Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation.

Innovative switching system
While typical dual humbucker configurations only allow for three pickup selection options, this guitar gives you more to play with. By employing a 5-way selector and some clever wiring, you also have split and parallel options available to expand your tonal palette.
