Hello,

I'm new here and this is my very first post. Regards from Turkey.

The body of my S470 is cracked in a stupid accident, where the neck mounted and can't be repaired. Only solution is to replace it with a new body. What I'm looking for is an unfinished (unpainted) S body of mahogany wood. I did a wide search all over the internet but no luck. No one sells S bodies. I thought maybe you guys can direct me some places where I can buy an S body.

I'm sorry if I opened this thread in a wrong place.

Edit: I have been told by Ibanez Turkey distributor that they don't have any S body so I'm on my own. I need to find it myself.

Best,
Suat

Your best bet is to look at ebay for a used S body. You might find one from Warmoth, but I doubt it

Post a pic of the crack. you'd be surprised at what you can fix with the right glue and some good clamps

Right now there is only one S body on ebay.co.uk and it's cracked at the same place. I think the neck side is the weakest point of this bodies.

My body is in the luthier shop now. I'll post a pic as soon as I get it back.

Thanks for your reply.

There are several S bodies for $300ish on ebay in the USA

There was a company called Aston guitars that had a S body kit for $150ish, but I could not find one right now

I did find a complete JS style kit for $175 at www.byoguitar.com that might be your best bet. You can then sell the neck and other parts to recoup some money They ship world wide also
