Hi guys

I just want to know if there are any other guitars in the market that have a similar guitar body shape to the Ibanez S Series (eg. S5470). The body has to be very thin looking nad lightweight.

I saw a company a while ago that did this, but I can't remeber the name.
The only reason i ask is that the S prestige models are too expensive.

THANKS

Why not get a regular S instead or an SV Prestige?


Guessing he wants 24 frets.

You want a thin strat style guitar? Must have HSH and 24 frets?

Price limit? I'm guessing around 600-700 bucks. Am I right?

Pretty much.

Not too concerned about pickup configuration.

24 frets, good trem, and thin s body shape!

Just get an RG.....they really arn't that much heavier than the S models.

And the Edge III are not...I repeat....are not total **** like every makes them out to be. Had mine over 2 years with no issues what-so-ever.

And I had one that lasted a week and a half before never working again. I wasted money on three ****ing setups. All to no avail.

EDIT: If you could get a used RG Prestige, however... do it.

And did you contact Ibanez or your local Ibanez dealer to get the problem fixed????

You know they would have fixed for free for ya.

Sucks you wasted money on three set ups....all the reason to learn how to do it yourself!

Just out of curiousity.....what was wrong with it? How did it fail?

I already have an RG. I find the body too thick. I just want a very thin body guitar.

It wouldn't stay in tune. The knife blades/edges were worn out 'cos they're made of a ****ty metal.

But no worries, I bought my RG350DX NEW on Craigslist for 200 bucks (guy needed cash badly, I guess) sanded it down and refinished it like a Splatocaster and some dude bought it for 600 bucks.

So when you bought it new the knife edges were already worn out? Weird.

Well at least you made a profit off of it so it wasn't a total loss.
