Exceptional Sustain and Tonal Range

With a hot pair of humbuckers and a rock-solid fixed bridge, the Ibanez S521 solidbody electric guitar boasts aggressive tone with sustain that lasts for days. Five-way switching gives you more tonal combinations than you normally get with a dual humbucker setup, extending the range of this versatile instrument further. And if you're a fast player, you'll feel right at home with the sleek Wizard III neck profile. With a comfortably curvy body shape, the Ibanez S521 is the kind of guitar you can rock out with for hours.

Ibanez S521 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Explore a wide tonal range with five-way switching
  • Your fretting hand will fly on this Wizard III neck
  • High-octane tone from dual Infinity humbuckers
Explore a wide tonal range with five-way switching

While you'd normally expect a three-way switch with a dual-humbucker guitar, the S521 packs a five-way switch for extra tonal range. Position one gives you the neck humbucker as you'd expect, while the second position puts its two coils in a parallel configuration. The third position gives you both pickups, while the fourth position gives you the inside coil of each pickup. The fifth position is all bridge humbucker. Guitarists at Sweetwater dig the extra tonal variety, and we know you will too.

Your fretting hand will fly on this Wizard III neck

One of Ibanez's fastest necks to date, the 3-piece maple Wizard III neck on the S521 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 S521's Wizard III neck, you'll know you've got a guitar that was built with performance in mind.

High-octane tone from dual Infinity humbuckers

The S521 packs a pair of their popular Infinity humbuckers, voiced differently for maximum tonal range. The bridge position ceramic humbucker is voiced for aggressive chording and rhythm work, while the Alnico neck humbucker is a brilliant lead pickup: warm, yet snarling with an enhanced midrange output when you push it. Bottom line? If you're after aggressive tone with character, then the Ibanez S521 will give your amplifier what you need.

Ibanez S521 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Sleek electric guitar with aggressive, wide ranging tone
  • Maximum sustain and tonal impact from the fixed-bridge design
  • Wide tonal range from ceramic and alnico humbucking pickups
  • Perfect for fast, intricate fretwork thanks to the Wizard III neck profile
  • Comfortable to wear and play even during marathon sessions and gigs
Get ready to rock with the Ibanez S521!
