It's been a while since I played an Ibanez in the house. I've been trying to move away from my comfort zone. It gets too easy when one is equipped with one's preferences. Gave this S470 a re-string & put up with the DiMarzios in there. I usually stay in the humbucking position in an HSH guitar but there was a significant amount of time spent with the Area 61 single coil. The lower output & less magnetic pull made the tone very enjoyable.
This is one of the very few guitars I bought used. The condition was still very good when I bought it (unbelievable for less than $200) less the nut lock (which was corroded) & the whammy bar (was stuck in the hole for some time. It's also one of the better made models from Cort's Korean factory.
