Black J-Custom S? - Is there one?

Some months ago I saw a Saber that looked like the J-Custom S-3040-PL but it was black, not white. Do you know that guitar? I saw it at www.musik-produktiv.de a German page.
Here is the white one: http://www.ibanezregister.com/Galler...-s-unknown.htm
Is this guitar also available in black? I think it had a gold binding at the body...

Black J-Custom S?

I think I found it for ya:

S-620X-GK (Galaxy Black)

Available: *UK, Europe, Asia
2 Hums and Double Edge system.
I don't think there's binding, and it looks like a standard model (not a J-Custom):

The 620 also looks like it has a double Edge.

*lol* These are some nice pics!
But I donīt think that this is the guitar I mean... it was really expensive, about 5000DM (2300$)
And it had a gold binding and looked more flat.

As far as I know, the 3040 was just in white and natural/brown stain.

Hei there few years ago in a big music store in Italy I saw an Ibanez ,I do not remember if it was an RG or an S, all black with the gold sparkle binding as in the J Custom I even asked for the price but wasn't available at the time, the Guitar looked damn good
Not much help but *who knows....

Hmmm...you sure it wasn't an RG-ARCH you were looking at?
*
The burgundy on the ARCH can be easily confused as black...and the arched top could make one mentally debate between RG and S....

Yeah..the ARCH is a really dark finish...I could definitely see how mistaking it with black would be very easy to do. *

Hey, it looked like that, but it was much darker. Maybe it was a bad pic on the German guitar page so it looked like black? But I could promise that it was a S...
