S Classic?

Don't have enough posts yet so I will ask simple questions and hopefully have enough to respond to to be able to post a pic to the guitar in question.

Found this guitar locally. It's a Japanese S-Classic. I can't tell if it is a 220 or 420. Never really even knew about this guitar until today. I played it, feels good, looks decent, some cosmetic stuff and needs a good cleaning and polish.

Price was $169.

Any opinions? Must buy? What to look for. Overall opinion on this guitar? Any clues on figure out if it is a 220 or 420?

If you check out www.ibanezregister.com you can do some comparison between the two models and see some pics to help you compare.

Re: S Classic?

They are nice guitars. $169 is a good deal for the 220 and a steal for the 420.

The 420 has rounded pickup rings, recessed knobs, and a normal saber body. The 220 has regular rings, regular knobs, and the back is flat without the saber contour.
