New Saber Alert!

Well I just noticed I had a new edition of Guitar Center's monthly torture. I see on page 9 that there is a limited edition S620EX in a 3 color swirl that looks kinda tasty! It seems it's a GC exclusive and there will only be 250 made, in a dual humbucker config w/what looks like EMG's and the Z-trem.


Anyone have anymore info on these, or seen one at a GC yet?



Cheers!,
Xerack

Re: New Saber Alert!

I just had to call one of my local GC's and they actually have one in stock. I guess I'll have to make a trip there tomorrow and see it for myself, and maybe snag a few pics to post here as well.

My birthday is in March, maybe I'll treat myself to this if I like it enough ; )



Cheers,
Xerack

Re: New Saber Alert!

If you do pick one up you'll have to post some pics, I'm interested in this one.

If it's a prper reissue, the pickups will be passive with black covers over them, not emgs.

Re: New Saber Alert!

They are designed by emg.

The guitar is basically a 520ex with a fancy paint job. The pups, like I said are designed by emg though.

Re: New Saber Alert!

well I saw this new S at guitar center today. I wouldn't quite call the paint job a swirl but more along the lines of some of the other old paintjobs they have done lately. I lot like the black on one of those rg521 with the grim reaper or barbwire vine, just different colors.
