Affordable Axe That's Packed with Tone!

The Ibanez S420 solidbody electric guitar gives you S series performance and value plus the comfortable curve of a modern arched top. Flat, thin, and freakishly fast, your fingers will positively fly down the S420's Wizard III neck and rosewood fingerboard. There's plenty of room on this fretboard for pulling off wicked bends and massive chords, and thanks to the ZR locking bridge, you can comfortably nail dive-bomb trem techniques without throwing off your tuning. Top it off with a wicked set of INF passive humbuckers, and the Ibanez S420 electric guitar is ready to shred!

Ibanez S420 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Serious shredding performance starts with this super-fast Wizard III neck
  • Passive INF humbuckers with special 5-way switching deliver massive tonal range
  • ZR tremolo bridge gives you solid performance and stability
Serious shredding performance starts with this super-fast Wizard III neck

One of Ibanez's fastest necks to date, the 3-piece maple Wizard III neck on the S420 is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lighting-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but still gives you the substance you need for fretting chords when you need to. From the first time you put your hands on the S420 Wizard III neck, you'll know you've got a guitar that was built with performance in mind.

Passive INF humbuckers with special 5-way switching deliver massive tonal range

Ibanez's INF passive humbuckers are the kind of stock pickups that aftermarket pickup makers dread. Tight and punchy, with plenty of low-end growl and full-throttle bite, the ceramic INF1 neck pickup and alnico INF2 bridge pickup mounted in the S420 guitar deliver the kind of impact modern rockers and metal-heads are looking for. Add to that a 5-way switching system that includes parallel neck mode and you've got a world of tone at your fingertips with an Ibanez S420.

ZR tremolo bridge gives you solid performance and stability

The S420 electric guitar's ZR bridge with Zero Point System was designed by Ibanez to give you the fast tremolo response with virtually no resistance. The freakish stability of this ball-bearing-based trem is one of the many reasons it's a such a hit with today's top shredders. If you're looking for a guitar that can stand up to long playing sessions without losing its tuning (even when you snap a string!), you're going to love the S420!

Ibanez S420 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A fast, sleek, and expertly contoured solidbody electric guitar built for serious shredding performance
  • Arched-top solid mahogany body gives you a comfortable base for any picking technique
  • 15.75"-radius bound rosewood fingerboard and 3-piece maple Wizard III neck provide fast action that's second to none
  • INF1 and INF2 passive humbucking pickups provide warm and punchy tone
  • ZR bridge with ZPS2 zero-point system lets you pull off extreme bends without sacrificing your tuning
Shred in style with this Ibanez S420 solidbody electric guitar!
