Really blown away by Ibanez S-Series

I was at the local guitar shop and they had an Ibanez S-Series for like $950, now I've always hated Ibanez guitar but I never got a chance to try a higher class model out, so I gave it a chance.

Holy shit, this guitar SHREDS. I was only plugged into a Vavlestate head through a cab since JCMs with teh volume at 1 sound worse than anything. The action was set up perfectly, perfect action with the right amount of string tension so that its easy to bend but not easy enough to accidently bend when playing fast. The Neck was very nice, it wasnt a wizard so I didnt feel like I was holding a knife. Overall I was very impressed, worth $1000? Not at all, I payed $250 more a Jackson USA Soloist that totals destroys it, but I was VERY surprised that Ibanez made a guitar I really liked. Price wasnt right though.

since when did ibanez make an s series without a wizard style neck?

i personally think wizard style necks are the most comfortable things ever.

I've played wizards before and this wasnt one.

And this is the only Ibanez I've played that I would ever think about buying, but just not for $950.

despite the quality of the S series, the RG series kills them in my opinion.

I've played several RGs and they felt cheap and cheesey.

weird... i feel the opposite, i like the series alot, but the rg's just have more mojo or something imo.

but comparing the feel and tone of an s series to an rg it's like comparing a gibby les paul to a parker fly... both sweet but totally different.

um... i wasnt being sarcastic. i own two ibanez guitars, an rg570 and a pgm30... both are top notch instruments. they sound and feel great.

hopefully soon i'll be buying an ibanez artist series, those things are fucking sweet.

you played the wrong versions hehe.

S's don't have great sustain, mostly 22 frets and bah. their trems are horrible IMO.

they play light like rg's and theyre not heavy and shit, thats cool, so is the neck, but overall, I'de take an RG over an S any day of the week.

if you can get a usa made soloist for 1150... thats crazy, they're insanely expensive over here. (but fuck that, I've got my custom Ran beeing build right now, hah!)

i fucking love ibanez s series guitars. Really comfortable to play, the body shapes just right and the neck is fucking fine and smooth, its made even nicer by the white binding. The only problem is they dont have much sustain but theres ways around that.

Anyways, I was wondering whether you (DEAD) played the SA series guitars by ibanez and not the S series? because all S series guitars have wizard or wizard 2 necks whilst the SA series doesnt, instead it has a slightly thicker neck.
