Ibanez S1070PBZ-CLB Premium 2018 – 2021 Cerulean Blue Burst

$ 1149.00

The Ibanez Premium S1070PBZ 6-string solidbody electric guitar delivers a unique tonal output thanks to a 5-piece poplar burl/walnut/curly maple/panga panga top and an African mahogany body — a veritable smorgasbord of exotic tonewoods. In addition, an 11-piece neck with a panga panga fretboard feels smooth and has incredible response and playability. A trio of pickups — two humbucking, one single-coil — with a 5-way pickup switch gives the S1070PBZ a massive array of tonal options and stylistic approaches. And the Edge-Zero II tremolo bridge helps create epic sustain and superior note definition — this electric is loaded for rock and roll. Just ask the many players here at Sweetwater who enjoy the Ibanez Premium series of electric guitars.

Your fingers will fly on this Wizard-7 super-fast neck

As one of Ibanez’s fastest necks to date, the Wizard-7 is an 11-piece panga panga/maple/walnut/purpleheart neck that is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lightning-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but it still gives you the substance you need for gripping chords. Plus, with its neck-through construction, the S1070PBZ delivers epic sustain. From the first time you wrap your hand around the Premium S1070PBZ’s Wizard-7 neck, you’ll know you have a guitar that was built with performance in mind.

Great stability, sustain, and articulation

The Ibanez Premium S1070PBZ features an Edge-Zero II tremolo bridge — an expertly designed system that not only provides killer sustain but also amazing stability for staying in tune. The Edge-Zero II tremolo bridge lays nearly flush to the guitar’s body and has features for adjusting tremolo response and string tension via the Ibanez-designed Zero-Point system located on the back of the S1070PBZ body.

Versatile pickup configuration The pickup configuration on the Ibanez Premium S1070PBZ is a work of art in itself. A DiMarzio Air Norton humbucker in the neck slot kicks out deep, warm tone without muddying out when driven hard. A second humbucker at the bridge, the DiMarzio Tone Zone, features brilliantly high-output yet delivers tremendous dynamic range, so you can get even more tones out of your guitar. Chords are huge, even single notes have depth, and the DiMarzio Tone Zone’s patented dual-resonance coils deliver killer overtones. Finally, a single-coil DiMarzio True Velvet sits in the middle position, nailing that vintage single-coil tone. Engineered to emphasize the “sweet spot” where the highs are bell-like, the True Velvet uses a special magnet stagger to avoid the harsh tone you can get above the 12th fret on the higher strings.
