The S5520K is an S series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The S5520K features an Australian blackwood top on a mahogany body bolted to a titanium reinforced maple and walnut Super Wizard HP neck with a 24-fret marbled rosewood fingerboard with offset white dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez humbucking pickups, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The S5521 is a related model with a fixed bridge which lacks the exotic top.

The S5520K was discontinued after 2016.
