An Ibanez S series or the jackson SLSMG3? The local guitar center doesn't have the jackson for me to compare the two.

Pretty sure the s will be thinner bro. On an S series they have to have a top mounted input jack because the body is too thin to have one at the usual spot but the slsmg has it at the usual place.

S series. Either way if you're looking at buying one I'd definitely choose the S series, mine plays like a dream.
Gear:
- Ibanez RGR465M
- Ibanez S770FM
- PRS SE Custom
- Blackstar HT-5 Mini Stack

Definitely the S series. Jacksons aren't bad guitars by any means, but if you have the cash, invest in an S Prestige, you'll be blown away by how thin they are, the tone pallet they have, and if you get one with the ZR system and all its newer components, you'll never buy anything else.

This was the closest jackson have been to the s series with the shape etc.
Its called the jackson stealth they dont make them anymore. There was only mij ones i think.

I have the new Ibanez S5EX1 in transparent gray at guitar center in layaway. I'm only $185 from bringing it home. I just wondered about the Jackson cause I saw Gojira using them and they looked to be pretty thin.

Are the new S series really not as thin? I thought the regular S were as thin, but the new SA series are the thicker ones. is that right?

this is my s from the store pic because i bought it from the used section of guitarguitar however the colour in person is more turquoise but its a kick ass guitar
Its an s440 and it was before they put the tin foil trs trems on the 400 series guitars
and yes its really thin and light but it sounds great

Alot of the older s's from the late 80s/early 90s have the hss setup they're not incredibly hard to find.

Is it an S or an SA? They're not the same...
