The SZ series is a line of solid body electric guitar models produced by Ibanez which was introduced in 2003. It is the third series of Ibanez S series guitars with a hard-tail bridge instead of a tremolo. It spawned the similar SZR series in 2008.
Like the SF and SC (or S Classic) series which preceded it, the SZ series is based on the sculpted mahogany-bodied S series, but with a fixed bridge. However, the SZ series represents an even bigger departure from the original "S" design. The SZ has a thicker body and flat back, a standard set-in neck and the Gibraltar III bridge also introduced in 2003. Like the SC, the SZ has a 25.1 inch scale neck instead of the 25.5 inch of the standard S. (more...)
