2010 Prestige Sabers
Hi Guys, first post, hope some of you can help!
I'm about to buy my first Ibanez and like the look of the new 2010 S prestige, but having spent some time researching as many posts on the S Prestige as I could find, there seems to be hardly any recent reviews or first hand reports on the 2010 models. Unfortunately I'm nowhere near any shop that stocks these in the UK, and I suspect most shops that do have stock will have pre 2010 models at the moment, so I'm relying a lot on what I can read about them online.
Has anyone here had a chance to play these new models and if so, can you report on how you are finding them, and if possible how they compare to the same models from previous years? As you will prob know, Ibanez has changed the neck and the middle pickups on the 2010 models and I am particularly interested to know how these changes have affected their sustain 'issues', balance and 'feel' if at all.
On a slightly separate note, does anyone have any knowledge/experience with the characteristics of the EGEN18 custom pups (unavailable by retail I believe?) and if any of the commercially available Dimarzios are similar or even much the same?
Please feel free to chime in with any thoughts or reports.
Cheers for now
