This is a very late NGD, but, on with the (terrible) pictures.

EDIT: Huge-ass pictures removed for sanity

Album link for a handful more pictures.

It's an odd 2008 model made with 2008 prestige hardware in a limited run with a quilt top. 22-fret Wizard prestige neck, DiMarzio/Ibz pickups, ZR bridge and Gotoh tuners.
To start with, the neck is fantastic. I have a Wizard II on my other Ibanez and it doesn't even compare to how comfortable this neck is. Its a got more curve to it than other Ibanez necks so it fits my hands perfectly. The fretwork isn't exactly stellar and a handful of frets are flat especially on the high e side.
I can't say I have much experience with other floating bridges, but the ZR is completely solid with the bar out and I haven't had to tune it in weeks. Setting it up was far easier than I expected and really didn't take any time at all with some time spent stretching the strings.
The pickups are surprisingly good for stocks and really tear through shreddy type leads and harmonics without having too much output.
All in all, a crazy good deal considering it cost the same/less than the standard S line and has much better hardware.

Yeah the serial number indicates that its an Indonesian made Ibanez year 2009. It kind of looks like an Ibanez S470DXQM but with a different neck. Very odd.

I dunno man,that chrome metal logo,the two bubinga stripes and the two bolts from the back leads me to belice that it's a pre '06 prestige without the TJC logo

I am aware its not a prestige model since it was made in indonesia. As it turns out it was made in 2009 but the specifications are the same as the 2008 prestige line. The c shape 5 piece wizard prestige neck with Gotoh tuners and the 12th fret inlay I think were unique. The model name was S09LTD1. Not quite a prestige, but far more for my money than a standard S. This is the only one I've ever come across for sale too.

It might as well be a Prestige. Aside from where it was made, the hardware and pickups are Prestige level.
