The new premium S's!

Found some pics and some interesting features! First off, they both have a cutaway at the back of the lower horn allowing easy access to the upper frets! 2nd: the back of the neck on the s920e is painted black! Looks like its a satin finish though (you can see the tape marks at the top of the neck)

Anyway, enjoy!

Re: The new premium S's!

The amount of screws in the electric cavity cover looks retarded.

My ideal model would be

- Edge trem
- No volute
- No need for that funny cutaway on the back
- Square heel with nice neck plate.

I hate the new premium font they've been using.

The S970CW looks a bit like the S5470K KB Special Edition, even if i think the koa top looks alot better.

F**K the Premium RG's! THESE are where it's at!

I have one nitpick though.

Chrome hardware on the black one? Really Ibanez? Way to make it look cheap. I hope it's actually cosmo chrome and just looks really light in the picture.

I think it's just a volume knob
