S1220 - Anyone else interested in this?

Was just interested in everyone's thoughts on this. *Looks like Ibanez took the S520 and:

Changed the Edge to a Lo-Pro
Changed the pickups from V series to Quantum series
Changed the neck to a Prestige neck
Added neck and headstock binding

and oh yeah...DIDN'T CHANGE THE PRICE!

A Prestige-class S series that lists just under a grand?? *That's an unbelieveable value in my book! *I love the S body, and the flat finish, so I can't wait to see this one in person. *Ibanez has really outdone themselves this year!

(Thanks again to Rich for the pics and info!)

Yeah...sounds great.

What's the red one in the pic (located on the rack be low the 1220)?

And another "thanks" to Rich for the pics and scoop!

I can't tell for sure, but I'm guessing it's the 470QS that's been around for the last couple of years.

"A Prestige-class S series that lists just under a grand?? *That's an unbelieveable value in my book! "

Exactly,

I'm really looking foward to getting this guitar.

I'm actually not that keen in getting an RGT3120 if it's available to me. Don't get me wrong, the RGT is great with it's wonderful specs. It is definately one of the better Prestige RG'S in my book but right now i can't afford to pay US$1999.

The S1220 which is $1000 cheaper that the RGT is definately top on my list for value for money. So, looks like i've to start saving. Damn...

Yes.

I already paid *a deposit for my PGM10TH, it will be arriving soon...very soon. The thing is i just can't resist the price tag on the S1220, so it looks like i'll be getting the S later...not anytime soon, probably late Oct or Nov.
