are you referring to the 2620 instead? it's quite clear that the 1620 is piezo equipped...

i have a 620x and it is extremely nice and sounds awesome! i plan to swap the pups (maybe air norton and evolution) but the versatility of the sounds. i think maybe the resale on a "prestige" might be higher - but i think that's it. someone else might know the specs better.

bro i managed to try these out at my dealer's, they are quite similar, only the 1620 has a different neck feel, attributable to the Prestige treatment + it's the thinner Super Wizard (620x= Wizard II neck profile).

also, the 1620 sports the new Edge Pro vibrato. which one do you have in mind?
