Ibanez S570B in White
Here's what Ibanez say about the S570B
The S Prestige series is "Made in Japan" by the finest Ibanez craftsmen and from top-of-theline components. This beautifully contoured shape, combined with the ZR-2 tremolo system, produces warm resonant tones from a super thin mahogany body.
The Ibanez S series first appeared in 1987. Ever since, it has changed in appearance and function to represent the cutting edge of Ibanez design. Famous for its lightweight carved mahogany body, the S can take a beating while still providing the resonance of guitars twice its size. The S series also comes equipped with the ZR-2 tremolo system, a smooth ball bearing tremolo that makes every subtle nuance of whammy bar use come alive.

For 2010 - with a two-octave fretboard, the new S models allow players even more creative freedom.
The ZR tremolo with the ZPS successfully addresses the inherent drawbacks in traditional locking trem systems. Thanks to the unique ball-bearing mechanism, action and feel are incredibly smooth.
The Zero Point System consistently returns the tremolo to the center position (zero point). This system offers ease of tuning, tuning stability and the ability to keep playing even after a string is broken.
ZPS (Zero Point System)
No friction points make the ZPS the smoothest Ibanez Back Stop ever.
An additional outer pair of springs provides easier tuning and better tuning stability than the traditional floating tremolo-plus the other strings will remain in tune if a string breaks.
Switchable To Floating Trem
One of the best ZPS features! Just remove the stop bar and the ZPS easily changes to floating trem operation.
Manually Adjustable Spring System
Spring tension can be quickly set by thumb. There's no need for a hex wrench.
