the SA160QM has a visually pleasing laminate top but i'm not a fan of such cosmetics, it adds nothing to tone. more importantly, you should acquire the one which adds value to your playing, regardless of the versions being discussed here. good luck with the purchase!

Iam just curious why would this guitar be classified as a entry-level guitar?
Its defined as this by its price range, not necessarily actual quality level, its a well playing guitar, thats my opinion on the subject, with a good trem, at least in so far as it has a knife edge on it, smooth travle, and works well for vibrato, but forget about dive bombs and pull ups with a non-locking system

Am I seeing things?But the Andy Timmons guitar seems very similar to the SA......
It is fairly similar as far as general shape goes, but a much different guitar hardware wise, think of it like a 6 cylinder mustang, and a cobra, two entirely different machines that look identical

Thanks!I know i haven't been playing a long time but long enough to decide what feels good to me and sounds good thats why I was asking,also I've tried some other Ibanez's out rg's jem and I guess at this point they were kinda of hard for me to control/handle plus they all have the double locking sytems which seem like alot of work when changing strings.

The SA guitars look alright and I like the body style, but I can't deal with those single coils. I really wish that Ibanez made one of those SA guitars with dual humbuckers and a simple fixed bridge. Now THAT would be one sweet guitar.
