What S Model is this?

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/msg/461644175.html
okay, so of course the left photo and the right are not the same. The seller states that the one on the left has two small dots on the 12th fret. However after looking on the internet for quite some time.. i cant find any s2120s or 2020s or anything that has the two small dots on the 12th fret. Can anyone tell what model it is by looking on small photo on the left?

Re: What S Model is this?

This is the 2020xAV its in the ibanez 2000 catalog. Is this in the right section?

Anyway it was a lot like my RG2020 needed new Pickups and the neck felt a little thick to me. Just an opinion though.
Thanks
Mike

Nah its listed as a wizard neck but to me it just didn't feel that way. It was still very nice don't get me wrong.

Yeah somewhere around 2000 they started to go with that wavy line instead of the offset dots of the RG models. Its listed as the same model etc. I played the one with the wavy inlay probably a dozen times or so, and found it pretty nice.
Thanks

That 2120 is a badass axe and, at that price, I'd buy it if I had the cash.

S2020xav is right. I just picked one up a few weeks ago and love it, but
tagg_7 is right about it not feeling like a wizard neck. Mine is stock but has great tone and is very comfortable. Its a great price also.

Re: What S Model is this?

I just got an RG 550 that has the original wizard profile and it seems really thin compared to the S2020. The 2000 catalog on Ibanez Rules (what a resource by the way) indicates a Wizard neck on the S2020. Not that the S is a baseball bat. When I get home tonight I'll do a quick side by side and see if I can quantify the difference a little more.

Re: What S Model is this?

I have the first (S2020). It looks like you purchased the S2120, which has the option of blending the piezo with the magnetic. Mine can only do one or the other. Other than the inlay, I believe they are the same neck, but I would have to let someone who has played it let you know. Either way, congrats on the new guitar. I don't know what they retailed for new.

Re: What S Model is this?

the 2120 has an Ultra Neck !

Mine is really comfortable.

And I think the stock pickups are really interesting, I won't change them
