The S5528LW is an eight string 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 S5528LW features a limba wood top with binding on a mahogany body bolted to a titanium reinforced maple and wenge Ultra-8 neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and offset dot position markers. Components include dual DiMarzio D Activator humbucking pickups, a Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge, a Graph Tech TUSQ nut and Gotoh locking tuning machines.

Similar six-string (S5521Q) and seven-string (S5527QFX) models were produced, both with quilted maple tops.

The S5528LW was discontinued after 2016.
