After thinking about it some more, I think I'm going to pick up another fixed bridge. I'm looking for something new to approximate a classic Les Paul - Randy Rhoads/Dave Meniketti sound for under $500.
I'm curious about the Sabres, particularly the SZ320EX. I understand the Artists are Ibanez answer to the LP, but where does the Sabre series fit? How are the neck and bridge? Are the pickups active or passive? How good are the pots when it comes to rolling down the volume? Finally, are these MIK, MII, or MIJ like with the Prestige?
