      One of the best mid-range guitars on the market

      Now if you're looking for a good all-rounder then look no further, the ibanez s520 is a great piece of kit. I got mine around 7/8 years ago and it's served me well... it was originally my primary gigging guitar and it got used for everything, my first band was very pop rock based, i had a covers band that did old school rock and i was always working on metal songs in my own time and it handled every task... great action, modest looks, a decent start set up and a floating tremelo for dragonforce lovers!!!

      If i'm honest after the first year or two i realised i hardly used the tremelo and with it being floating (you can bend up or down) it struggled to hold its tuning if you started using it too much so i unscrewed mined and i use it as a standard guitar now...

      Its travelled around a lot and taken a few bumps and its still in great condition, its great to play and due to being so thin its very light to hold. I've since purchased a matt tuck signature jackson rhoads so this has become my back up guitar, ive had it tuned to dropped C and i had EMG active pick-ups put in setting me back £180 but the difference in out put is unbelievable, especially solo's up at the top end - they just have so much sustain now. The only problem with doing any modifications like that to this guitar is thickness of the body (or lack of) I had to find space for a 9v battery in the back and believe me it was a squeeze but it worked and the guitar had had a massive value boost... i would recommend this guitar to anyone looking to step up from a beginner level or someone more experienced looking for a mid-range guitar as a back up for gigging... it plays well, looks great and you can make changes to pick-ups or hardware to suit your needs so all in all a very versatile and reliable guitar!
