The S5521Q is an S series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2014. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The S5521Q features a quilted maple top on a mahogany body bolted to a titanium reinforced Super Wizard HP maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and offset dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Vintage humbucking pickups, a Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge, a Graph Tech nut and Gotoh locking tuning machines.

The S5521 is a similar model which lacks the exotic quilted maple top. The S5527QFX is a similar seven-string model.

The S5521Q was discontinued after 2016.
