The new SA series reinvents the successful old SA guitars with new features and better looks. This SA160FM with flame maple top is augmented by the newly rounded, carved top and matching headstock. The SA160FM’s maple top/mahogany body and 3-piece maple neck make for a fast-playing instrument. full of sustain. A great improvement on the old SA series, Ibanez!
Here’s what Ibanez say about the SA160FM
The SA series was designed for players who wanted the S model combination of lightweight comfort with heavy mahogany tones – but with a flat back. It’s also one of the most versatile series and includes the first Ibanez guitar to offer True-Duo pickups in a dual humbucker configuration. Other SA models feature a hum/sing/sing configuration with a True-Duo humbucker in the bridge. SAT Pro II tremolos are standard on the SA series, making them simple, powerful, and effective guitars in any musical situation.
