Saber thought..

Why are there no S series with direct mounted pickups? I initially thought it was because the bodies were so thin, but there are several 7 string models with them. What gives?

I see so many gorgeous Prestige Sabers that have pickup rings. I despise pickup rings lol..

No real reason. They could easily do it, the body isn't too thin. Probably the same reasons the 520/60/70 etc had rings.
