Lo Pro, MIJ, H-H, for only $75 more than the other, forget about it.

Re: Help me decide between these two guitars.

All three of the sabres in the top photo are incredible looking, mega quality instruments and i wish i had all three - alas i only have the 1220. But i LOVE it, so you will be very very happy with the 1520 amigo!

You wanna sell that?

Definitely the first one. The second one looks like someone put out all there cigarettes on the top.

NEVER! I love it too much! Watch the bay, there have been two with edge bridges and two later ones with ZR bridges on recently - i had one of the edge ones! Absolutley fantastic guitar - i am SO pleased with it - though like the dude commented earlier, i wish it had 24 frets, other than that - perfect!

There was a 2120 up very recently - it may still be on? I think the finish is gorgeous on that one and it's on my GAS list.

Aww. Okay, then.

I'm getting the S1520, then - it's more in my price range.

wizard Vs wizard II helped swing it a lot i reckon!

only thing that was in favour of the other one was the ZR trem IMO

Thumbs up Re: Help me decide between these two guitars.

I have an S1520 exactly like the one you want to buy except that mine has the ZR trem (which rules BTW!) so I guess I am biased but I'd say go for the
S1520 it has a great neck and sounds really nice!

Re: Help me decide between these two guitars.

I like the bubinga one better. The poplar looks icky with the sunburst. I never liked sunburst. I have a poplar with the natural finish and it looks awesome. I just can't stand sunburst. (shudders)
