I love it. It never occurred to me to do an ebony top, but I may have to on my next build.

That's not a finish. That's the wood itself. It's a variety of ebony.

Really? I guess they have alot of scrap left over from early 7vwh fretboards that they needed to get rid of.

Re: I know a lot of you complain about the S guitars

No one is really complaining about the LOOKS of the S. It's the construction that has S users mad. If they lowered the neck pocket, put a wizard 1 Prestige neck and got rid of the middle pickup I'd buy 3.

Yep. As they say, don't judge a book by it's cover.

And that new finish....yay. Black. Totally something different. Sweet dude. /sarcasm

Re: I know a lot of you complain about the S guitars

I personally think it's dumb to have an ebony top without an ebony fretboard.

Re: I know a lot of you complain about the S guitars

I don't like that either.

The only thing I dig that's S-like is the old Gambale models with matched inlays and headstocks. The DY and the blue ones. Damn. Now that's a guitar.

Talking Re: I know a lot of you complain about the S guitars

....and had it made in JAPAN. Too few S users bought the incredible s1220. Being that its price was spectacular for the time (FTLOG, the damn thing - mine at least - sustains like a les paul!) when compared to the other models offered in that time period, I can't believe that the peeps on this forum who LUV the sabre didn't buy one. That being said, I do realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. LOL.

Regardless, now the moaning seems endless. Sigh. Sorry for the rant, but I love the sabre. To my flawed logic it seems that had Ibby received some support of the higher-end prestige S models, e.g., people purchased them, they would not have needed to move the production offshore.
