Ibanez SZ Series Features
The Ibanez SZ720FM Flame Top guitar is a descendent of the super-slim Ibanez S models, but it really is an all-new - and simpler - species.
- Thru-body, staggered stringing compensates for different string thicknesses and provides superior tonal balance, feel, articulation and sustain.
- 3-piece set in neck for better upper fret access and sustain.
- Quilted maple top and slightly thicker S mahogany body provide incredibly full sound with a wide range of overtones.
- New Gibraltar III bridge offers fixed bridge simplicity and sustain. No sharp edges for longer string life.
The SZ features a set-in neck, which provides greater sustain and easier upper register playing. The SZ720FM also adds incredible custom shop-style neck inlays that look incredible.
The slightly thicker SZ body adds to its big, fat tone.
The fast, 25.1-inch scale SZ neck on this guitar is slightly thicker than the Ibanez Wizard neck, and just as flat for accurate playability.
For greater simplicity and sustain, the SZ features a fixed Gibraltar III bridge and thru-body stringing, which further augments its full tone & sustain.
In addition, the SZ features a mahogany body with the outstanding Flamed Maple Top, and high output SZ ceramic humbuckers with added bass response.
