unlike the non-Prestige SA models, the overall body depth is thicker, same goes for the neck. the DiMarzio IBZ pickups on board doesn't sound as smooth as standard DiMarzios, but the overall playability &amp; dare i say- thicker bottom end, is a draw.

I got those pics from <a href="http://www.musik-schmidt.de/osc-schmidt/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=ibanez&amp;x=0&amp;y=0" target="_blank">here</a>. They do there own independent photos. I find there pictures more accurate to what you actually get than the official Ibanez distributed ones.

<P>All SA models are made in Korea except a couple of the lower range like the SA260 which is made in Indonesia. I have an SA1260FM which I got last month, its made in Korea. Makes no odds to me, its a beaut and plays very well. The pickups are not high output (thank god) and are not that great for real heavy metal (thank god) so is perfect for my rock/hard rock,blues,jazz,funk needs.</P>

<P><SPAN =bold>Axe2Grind</SPAN><BR>Is that guitar you posted pictures of&nbsp; an SA 2160&nbsp;rather than&nbsp;an SA 1260.</P>
<P>The SA2160 is a new model made in Korea</P>
<P>The SA1260 was made in Japan around 2004</P>
<P>Your guitar looks nice - how are you finding the sounds of the True Duo bridge pickup</P>
<P>Does your guitar have binding round the body - looking at the pics I can't see any</P>

<P>Hi Ibaneezer,</P>
<P>Yep, Mine is the Ibanez SA2160FM, what a cluz I am!. It has natural binding around the body and cream binding on the neck/headstock. I am really loving the pups on this. The Trueduo is really great, I initally had an issue with it when plugging into my Line6 toneport, I was getting this annoying overtone when playing distortion and realised I had the sends set to Pre instead of Post and got an unprocessed signal on top of my processed tone, it sounded aweful and nearly wrote off the TrueDuo as crap but thankfully I sorted it all out and the pickup sounds great now. Very much like a PAF Pro which is the sort of output I like. I emailed Dimarzio asking about info on the IBZ's in my axe and Steve Blucher&nbsp;replied to me giving me some info : Below:</P>
<P>From Steve :<FONT size=2></P>
<P>"The single-coils are very similar to a warm-sounding vintage Strat pickup in tone and output (similar to a Blue Velvet bridge model). The humbucker does not closely resemble any of our stock models, although it is somewhat similar to a PAF Pro. "</P>
<P>I was interested in the SA1260 and came across a mint condition one for sale in the UK, but decided on the new one. Cheers for checking it out bro.:)</P>

<P><SPAN =bold>Axe2Grind</SPAN><BR>Glad your enjoying the guitar anyway.</P>
<P>Funnily enough I was going to get a SA 2160 - but the chance to get a SA 1260 came up and I decided I had to take it.</P>
<P>It is a really great guitar - I am not sure that the bridge pickup is original - when I next change the strings I will take it apart and have a look.</P>
<P>What I am most impressed with is the articulation of the sound - it is so defined and crisp. It makes my 80's Artist AR100 (my fave guitar) sound a bit muddy.</P>
<P>The SA1260 does some really great clean tones.</P>
<P>Where did you get your SA2160 - I have'nt seen any in the UK yet ?</P>

<P>Ibaneezer,</P>
<P>I'm getting the same nice crips, articulated sound from my axe, its great for all those nice clear distortion tones I like, and the clean tones with the SC pups are very strat like and even have a nice bit of quack.</P>
<P>I really like the SA1260, its very similar to the AT300 Timmons Sig model. I like that violin finish. Hope you are enjoying yours too.</P>
<P>Well, I actually bought my guitar online at <A href="http://www.Thomann.de" target="_blank">www.Thomann.de</A> which are a German music superstore. A couple of friends had purchased their axe's from there and gave me good feedback on their experiences with their purchases from this store. Also they had the SA2160 in stock. My axe did'nt come setup to my liking as I like 10's so got it setup by a local tech and it plays very well, best axe I've owned and I've had some very highend ones. </P>

<P>I prefer it without dot inlays, I like the special inlay on the 12th, looks really nice close up, but not too fussed about dots. take me back to when I had a parker fly.</P>
