Another worthy Korean: SA2020





i ended 2005 playing my new guitar- the SA2020. it's my 4th Prestige Ibanez, 2nd Korean- no regrets. another good output from the WM Korean factory.

the default pickups are Dimarzio IBZ units, to me they sound above average but it's nothing really Dimarzio-immaculate. what i like about this guitar is the set-neck feature which is lacquer-free; super smooth & upper fret access couldn't have been better. IMO Ibanez should offer a hardcase for the Korean Prestige models too.

any other owners here?

I tried a SA2020 the other day, and it totally smoked the 555. Playability, sound, looks.

CU22? it's very different actually...

the bridge is set to float & the whammy bar is the push-in type.

That is a very nice looking guitar. It reminds me of the Andy Timmons signature model.

Re: Another worthy Korean: SA2020

Andy's signature model was based on the SA series, hence the similarities.

Yes, nice guitar! I played one at Musik-Produktiv, the big store in Germany, and ended up playing that guitar almost the whole afternoon. Great guitar, super playable, nice sound, and super sexy looks. An awesome guitar, congrats!
