I recently acquired an Ibanez S2170 prestige Purple Chameleon finish(blue,purple,red,gold,silver,green). Its an amazing guitar and in my opinion the best Ive ever played. The finish is also beautiful, it changes colour depending on the angle you look at it and the brightness of the light. Took me ages to find the guitar in stock because it's a discontinued model. what do you think?

question:

Does it matter if Guitar's action is higher towards the E + A string and lower at the higher E + B strings, because I like my action low but the lower strings buzz if its too low but the hgher stings are fine?

thanks

That is f*cking amazing. The colours I mean.

The action shouldn't be too much of a problem, assuming the difference isn't crazy. If it is, it may lead to neck warping, although easily stopped with truss rod adjustment.

Adjust the truss rod and u should be fine, but man oh man, that’s one hell of a beauty.... amazing color you got

That is one amazing guitar.

And, usually, it's hard to get super low action on all the strings, uniformly. So yes, it's quite normal for the thicker strings to be a bit higher.

That will make a great stage guitar man.

Don't worry about the action as long as it's comfortable and the buzzing doesn't come through the amp
