    Ibanez S970 Electric Guitar (with Gig Bag) Product Description

    For 25 years fans have appreciated the S-Series as a marvel of form and function, and now the S970 electric guitar gets what Ibanez has come to call "the premium treatment" -- high quality luthiery at a price that's within the budget of today's working player. Those with a need for speed will love the thin, fast 5-piece maple/walnut Wizard Premium neck which features hand-rolled frets -- the product of a skilled, hand-crimping process that produces noticeably smooth fret edges. The curvaceous 3-D body style is shaped from mahogany, and though it feels light and nimble, is capable of tone by the ton.

    ZRII Tremolo

    Zero Resistance technology, yet another Ibanez tremolo improvement, replaces standard knife-edge pivots with a ball-bearing-based pivot joint, which provides greater stability. The new snap-in arm socket ensures proper arm placement and easy removal. Arm torque is easily adjusted by tightening or loosening the screw located in the arm holder.

    The ZPS3 spring system represents the next phase of Zero Point evolution. The new ZPS3 is made of lightweight and durable Duralumin, reducing overall weight as well as cavity size on the guitars' back. This unique system stabilizes the bridge and ensures tuning stability by consistently returning the tremolo to the center point (or zero point). In addition to the usual tremolo springs, the Zero Point System features two additional springs which insures the bridges return to the center point.

    The Zero Point system adjustment can be quickly set by hand, there's no need for a hex wrench. The ZR tremolo uses a ball-bearing based system for precision and friction-free smooth action. Just unscrew the built-in intonation adjustment tool from the base and screw it into the bottom of each saddle for quick adjustments. The locking bolt is offset from the center of the saddle, which allows easy access to the bolt without loosening the strings.

    Premium Highlights:

    - The playable, comfortable Wizard neck on S Premium models is inspired by the specs of its Prestige counterpart.
    - S970W features Mahogany body and hand selected Claro Walnut top perfect accentuation of its shapely three-dimensional arched body.
    - The S Premium features the amazing ZR2 bridge and ZPS3 Spring System for radical trem effects and incredible tuning stability.
    - Deep scoop cut on body back for easier access to higher position.
    - Their luthiers insane attention to detail is evidenced by the Premiums hand-rolled fret edges. This slow, demanding process makes for a smooth, fast playing neck.
    - The Collet knobs are designed for precise control with nonslip functionality, along with smooth looks.
    - CAP pickups combine vintage warmth with remarkable clarity of tone. High output Alnico 5 magnet, OFC (oxygen free copper) coil which minimizes signal loss, and Belden wirings, exemplify the attention to detail it takes to deliver a rich sonic palette.
