Ross I just got my first Sabre (Prestige 1520) to add to my 2 JEM 10s, JEM90, JEM77BFP, JEM777DY, UV777BK, and UV77MC. I can't get enough of these guitars! I keep trying Strats etc in the hope of finding a really nice one but so far nothing can touch the quality of my Ibanez family. I have to start selling off a few though- my wife wants her spare room back and I want a DNA!

Re: JEM + Sabre

[*It is the thinnest neck *Incidently, I've seen others that are identical to it, but with a thicker neck than what I've got.
Anyone got any ideas?

I had one alot like you described. It was an aqua greenish color with HM/S/S and seperate toggle switched for each pickup. That guitars neck was rediculously thin.
Best damn guitar I have ever played. Im in the market for another one.

JEM + Sabre

I have a PMC, a DBK and recently aquired an S1520-FB Prestige.

Of the three, the PMC takes the most effort to play. It has a rich powerful tone and goes with whatever I'm wearing... The Prestige plays sweet. It has a wonderful neck for my playing style, is light weight yet has a beautiful brown tone to it due to the center joined mahogony body. I still need to get used to the absence of fret dots......The DBK is what I pick up to play and is by far the best guitar I have ever owned. Plays like a wet dream. The semi-unfinished body seems to allow the wood to resonate more and thus gives it a clear, shimmering tone that, when played clean, is very acoustic-like. The Breed pups give it enough power for all the metal I play and give me the ability to grab a ballad or two..

Germany, eh? That's cool.

To answer your question, Patrick: I have two Sabers (540 and 1520) and one Universe -- among others. I really dig the Saber body shape and I love the playability. Did you ever play a Radius/JS? It's even cooler

JEM + Sabre

Hey man, I've got 3 Jems, a DY, FP, and a VWH, plus 2 UV's, the UV777BK and a UV7BK. *I also have a Sabre, which model? *I don't even really know. *Maybe someone here can help me.
Here's the deal, bought it new, it was originally metallic burgandy, H S S configuration, all IBZUSA pickups. *Has 3 switches, two, two position and one three position. *The weirdest part is the neck. *It is the thinnest neck I've ever seen. *Way thinner than the Wizard that is on Ibanez guitars today. *One of the Ibanez reps from Efkay told me that when Ibanez first introduced the Sabre, they built about fifty with this massively thin neck. *But, they had all kinds of warranty problems with necks twisting in the first shippment to music stores so they bailed on that neck and made the wizard a little thicker. *Mine never got sent back from the music store and it has never twisted. *It has a rosewood fretboard with jumbo frets, the edge trem and a mahogany body. *
It is an ultra cool guitar, I just don't really know what it is. *Incidently, I've seen others that are identical to it, but with a thicker neck than what I've got.
Anyone got any ideas?

I've got 3 Jems, PBK, DY, and VWH. I also have a 540FM. It's my second 540FM. I seem to like those because of the mahogany body and maple top...

JEM + Sabre - Who's got/had at least one of each?

Ok, this might seem a little silly but I have noticed a trend. It seems that a lot of JEM owners on here either also have a Sabre or did at some time in the past. Is it my imagination or is this true?

I personally own a S450 and a JEM7DBK (also a 555 but I aint countin' that.)

Who else? Which models? Why do you think it may be this way? Is there some kind of phsychology involved? A certain mindset if you will?
