Roadhouse USA location:

1993 Ibanez S470 MIJ Fuji Gen Transparent Red Lo Pro Edge Wizard Neck Prestige Case.

Awesome early Made in Japan version of the S470.

This is the one you want with the Lo-Pro Edge Trem and the Wizard neck.

One small ding on the bottom of the guitar (pictured) but overall in pretty incredible condition for its age.

Neck is as killer and fast as you would suspect.

All original right down to the pickups and the Ibanez Prestige case that came with these early models.

Excellent vintage example of the best S470.

 

The S470 is an S series guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1992. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The S470 was introduced as a more affordable version of the S540 with in house pickups instead of IBZ/USA pickups, but did have all the standard features of an S model with a sleek mahogany body, maple neck and a Lo-Pro Edge tremolo. It essentially replaced the similar 450S.

In 1994, the S470 was revised with a new set of pickups and the Lo TRS tremolo. A nearly identical model to this updated S470 was sold in Japan as the S370.

In 1995, a Korean made model with the same name was introduced for the US market. It was produced concurrently with the Japanese model for several years. Finally, the Japanese S470 was discontinued after 1999 and the Korean after 2001. A new S470 was introduced in 2003, also Korean made but otherwise completely revised.
