Ibanez RG520 QS SOL
I too would love to see a 3120 and T3120 with a quilted top, but alas, Ibanez only seems to have about a forest's worth of *flame maple in their warehouse and nothing else... at least nothing else for the North American market. I haven't been able to find much information about sapele at all, in terms of what other species it's similar to. It's not used much in instrument making, so tonal information on an uncommon wood is a little hard to come by.
The 3120 twins are Prestige models, which means a lot more handwork goes into finishing and assembly. The 520 is still very good (made in the same factory, but not on the Prestige line), but it's a regular production model. My biggest complaint with the 520 is that its stain/tinted coat is very opaque, which really doesn't do the grain much justice.
The jury is out on whether there are tonal differences between direct-mounted and ring-mounted pickups. I prefer direct-mounted for aesthetic reasons. You can convert a 520 to direct mounting, but you'll end up four little holes around each of the pickup routs where the rings were mounted.
