The S1520FB is an S series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1999. It is part of the high end Prestige line and one of the first S series Prestige models. It is sometimes listed as simply the S1520, but that model name refers more accurately to a related model without the exotic top.

The S1520FB features a mahogany body with a figured bubinga top mated to a maple and bubinga Wizard Prestige neck with a 22-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with a special inlay at the 12th fret. Components include Ibanez Quantum pickups, a locking nut and a double locking tremolo bridge.

In 2001, a new inlay style was introduced for the S1520FB. For 2003, the model was replaced by the S1620FB featuring the new ZR tremolo.
