    Found some pics and some interesting features! First off, they both have a cutaway at the back of the lower horn allowing easy access to the upper frets! 2nd: the back of the neck on the s920e is painted black! Looks like its a satin finish though (you can see the tape marks at the top of the neck)

    Anyway, enjoy!

    I'm really glad that the Sabers are getting some more love.

    They look nice, but I HATE that Ibanez puts those ugly black plastic covers over their switches. It almost completely turns me off of the instrument.

    The black one actually looks pretty nice, but I'm still not digging the switch for that one either. It contrasts the finish too much.

    I am very disappointed the black one did not make it to the states. One can never have too many black guitars, you know! Seriously!

    :holy: Damn. I'm an RG guy and when I see an S, I usually feel pretty meh about it; these immediately sent my GAS through the roof. Too bad I don't have $1k to drop on one right now :lol:

    I love that there's new Sabres on the market. The Sabre is one of the best looking body shapes.

    Also, DAYUM that first one!

    Oh snap! I'm actually really glad the black S has a painted neck, if only it was a neckthrough, then it'd be a full classy package! :D Still looks great as is.

    The problem is that they absolutely need those plastic spacers to keep the blade switches where they are. There just isn't room in the body for traditional levers without them.

    That being said, my biggest problem with new S series guitars is that they have features mine doesn't. :(
