Lately i've been really keen on getting exotic top wood ibanez's such as L

S2170 - swirled Ebony top

S1520 - waterfall figured bubinga top

S970 - claro walnut top (Edit:MII Made in Indonesia)

s5ex1 - Zebrawood on mahogony

Unfortunately they're all made in korea or indonesia. Are they still comparably good guitars even though there aren't any exotic top wood MIJ Sabers?

I know the top wood is only a vaneer and doesn't add to the tone what-so-ever. However I still like how they look. Has anyone tried these? If so, how was it?

I have a S1625FB with the Pestige Hardshell Case for sale $750.
Shipping would have to be added on for AUS.
Here is a spec sheet I found for you.
Here are pics of mine.
It is in mint shape, like NEW, except one small scatch on the edge of the guitar body on the back, under your right arm when holding the guitar.
It has the darkest Rosewood fretboard I've ever seen, I thought it was Eboney when I fist saw it.
The top is almost 3D it's so cool.
The Rosewood top on the headstock is a nice touch too.
5 way switch on two HBs gives a lot of really nice tones.
The neck is realy comfortable and plays fast.
