The S520 is an S series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2014. It is produced in Indonesia.

The S520 features a mahogany body bolted to a maple Wizard III neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with offset dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Quantum humbucking pickups and an Edge Zero II double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced by jatoba.
