Not sure if I like the ring around the pickup selector switch on Blackie, but other than that? VERY classy! I dig them!

Those do look really sleek. Not sure I'm a fan of the painted neck, but one could always sand it down it it really bugged them I suppose.

Funny how Ibanez gets shit for doing too many black guitars, and now this S comes out... Well, they did need a higher end S in black, I guess.

Can't disagree there. If I ever got an S then I'd probably carve one from some fretboard-matching wood or try my hand at machining one.

That'd look really nice depending on what color scheme you had going on.

I find this hilarious too...because I usually hate black guitars...this is the first black guitar I've ever liked...probably has something to do with the binding and no inlays...make it look neater/cleaner/sleeker/sexier in my eyes hahaha

What were the prices on these in the store again?
$1049 CAD if I do remember correctly. Not a bad price considering the usual Canadian mark up.

those sabers look awesome, i'm really digging the claro walnut top but flat out broke at the moment due to gas. On another note those switch covers can be changed with clear covers or other 5 way switches

Ive always liked this series of guitars and im also pretty impressed overall with the premium quality. But let me ask you IBBY pros. Is it me or does the shape of these look slightly off from the normal S guitars? Maybe its the angle of the pics but they just look off. Either that or they slightly changed the shape so someone cant put a different logo on it and try to sell it off as a prestige. All in all though nice guitars.

ive never had one but cant you simply remove the cover?

They had to change the shape to accommodate 24 frets...that's probably why you think it looks funny? I had the same impression at first too.

That black one is one of the few black guitars I liked after years of pure hate, haha. The matte finish on the neck is a super awesome touch, the binding is the icing on the cake and FINALLY a Saber without a middle pup and puprings. The walnut one is delicious, too.

Verdict: Premium Sabers are pure win.
