Long story short: I went to GC today not even to look at guitars and wound up getting all googly-eyed by an Ibanez S521. It had the Ocean Fade finish which I didn't care for too much, but the features were decent and the playability was out of this world. The pups didn't sound half bad either through a Blackstar combo. I own an RG 450 with a Floyd which I do keep in rotation, but that guitar is about the extent of my Ibby knowledge other than the JEM. Years ago I saw a guitar in a music store that was probably some S series variant, because I remember being struck by the trim body... and it was really $$$. Now today, several years later when I can paly a lil' better, and have some holiday cash to liquidate, I'm looking for opinions on this line of ax'es, good or bad. I have done a smidgen of online looking and I see an SA series on ebay, but this series is not on Ibbys website as current production. The SA's I saw were HSS but looked like the S521 body. To get to the point, I like the body and neck of the 521 I played at GC. Are there other finishes and features that can be configured of that model from previous production, or is that guitar "as is"? And what's up with the SA guitars on ebay?
