s1220 questions

I have this model in mind, but there are some questions i have about it.

The bridge... is an edge or a lo-pro edge one? At ibanez.com appears edge,but in some post here and at ibanezrules i have read lo-pro.

It´s AANJ?

The guitar have a only one inlay in 12 fret, but does it have side dots?

I used to heard that wood finish make the guitar loose sustain, is this true?

Hm. The Ibanez site definitely says it's an Edge, but in the photo, it looks like a Lo-Pro, which the S1520 has.

I think there are very few (if any) high-end bolt-on Ibanez models that don't use AANJ... the JS series is the only notable exception i can think of at this time. The S series are definitely AANJ.

Rest assured that even though it has limited face inlays, it will have a full set of side dots.

I don't think a natural or oiled finish will make a guitar lose (not "loose") sustain. I've heard that compared to a hard clear finish, oil finishes can be a tiny bit less bright, but other players swear by natural finishes, saying that they "breathe" more. I think it's all anecdotal and subjective, so choose what works for you.

On the pic in the 2002 catalogue, the trem looks definately like an edge. The only lo-pro equipped S-guitars in there are the S1540 and the S2120X(with the piezos).

Edit - I can't write
