Just got this send over to me by Vic over at the Axe Palace.
I have ALWAYS been an ibanez guy but i have never owned a saber before. I was in the market for a 6 string and was leaning more towards getting an RGA, but Vic insisted that i pick this up instead.
He was right, this is THE BEST 6 string i have ever play and ive played a metric fuckton of guitars. The slimness of the body threw me way off at first, but what really shocked me was how loud this guitar is, even unplugged. I must have got a good slab of mahogany on this one because it has a lot of character.
The top wood is amazing in person and i apologize for not being able to capture it in my pictures. The top is more of a grey-blue (i was expecting purple) and the back of the body is stained a clear black, all tied together with some nice natural binding. I had the bridge pickup swapped out with a Dimarzio Dominion, which suits the mahogany perfectly.
Onto the Pictures
Here is a video of the guitar in action. Its not the best quality due to being deployed right now and having to work with what i got. Anyway, enjoy guys and thanks for checking it out.
