What's the diff between a SC620 & a SC1620?

Title says it all... I just got a 620 and was just wondering what the difference was, since they didn't seem to offer it at the same time. *I can't see any difference. *Sure is a beauty guitar...

Never heard of a SC620.

The SC1620 is a Prestige model. *If your guitar features these specs, you have a 1620, not a 620:

Figured Maple top, Gibraltar Bridge and a Vintage Violin finish.

You may have a SC420, or if you have an Edge or Lo-Pro Edge trem you may have a S620 (with oiled finish.)

Actually Kirk, I have two Ibanez USA catalogs that list the SC620 - with gory pics and details. They're in the '97 and '98 catalogs. They came with Antique Violin finish, and were also available in a cherry burst finish iirc (atleast for the first year). Lovely looking guitars - I've always wanted to try one.

But THE SC620 WAS DEFINITELY AVAILABLE IN THE USA...
...there just aren't that many of them about

You're absolutely right again! *Last year of production was 1998, and the only finish available that year was Amber Pearl, unless you bought the Prestige, which had the VV finish!

I need to bone up.......

The SC1620 is the guitar I wanted. It does exist (or did) along with the SC620. The specs:

SC1620 (prestige):

Set-in neck (or so I heard)
Funky RG-ART style inlay
Violin burst

SC620:

Gold-amber stain
Darkened (dyed) ebony
Oval inlays
Bolt-on neck.

These are the differences, as far as I know...

The SC1620 doesn't have a set-in neck. *The 620 was basically the same guitar, before became the prestige model. *

Thanks, guys.
Other than a fret that came slightly unseated (just enough to buzz only on the high E and only on one fret), this is a nice guitar, & it sounds great.
