S771PB is a novelty, a hardtail variant of the previously introduced S770PB model. S771PB is a six-stringed electric guitar with standard 25-1/2" scale, carved body, bolted neck and passive electronics. Of course, as a part of the famous S series, S771PB sports a 24-fret fingerboard. Number 1 in it`s name suggests that the series standard Edge tremolo bridge has been replaced by a classic hardtail bridge (Fender-styled) with six adjustable saddles and string-through-body construction. Body of this stupendous six-stringer is made of mahogany base and poplar burl top. This rare combo looks beyond beautiful and gives a balanced tone. Pickups on the top come from the Ibanez Infinity line of passive pickups. Bridge and neck positions are fit with humbuckers, while the middle position has a single-coil pickup. Master volume, master tone and a five-position blade switch are found in the controls unit. Neck is made of maple and it`s fit with the standard Wizard contour in the back. On it`s top, there is a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard.

I started out on the guitar trail with a metallic blue Ibanez from Dawsons in Leeds and whilst it was a bit tinny, it impressed with its light weight and playability. I saw the S771 in a shop at Sheffield not long after buying the first Ibanez and was gutted when it seemed to have been discounted. I kept putting it into the internet and eventually one appeared on the PMT website but was in Southend. The pennies were counted and I had it brought in to the Leeds store and it was love at first sight. A deal was done and bluey went into their stock and the S771 was on its way home. I still go into the spare bedroom and stare at it on its stand. I will never be of a level to really play it as I only started playing at 62 to keep my joints supple as psoriatic arthritis kicked in but its such a joy to play and Dean, my tutor sometimes gives it a whirl to show its potential as a guitar for all styles. I have been on 9.5 strings for a while now and they seem to suit. I find it hard to find anything detrimental about it....the only niggle is the lack of space between the double humbuckers and single coil...this means using the same part of the string mostly or you are rattling the tops of one of pickups as the action is close to the string. Finish after 18 months is mint and the fixed bridge after the bluey tremolo is no contest. At £425 less trade in, it was the steal of the century. Not going anywhere soon. Already got a cheap Yam Pacifica for holiday cover!
