The SA160FM features a flamed maple top, classic deep Brown Burst finish, and Rosewood fingerboard with white dot inlays and jumbo frets. Lurking beneath its graceful 3-D shape is select mahogany, chosen specifically for SA Series instrument slight enough for amazing comfort, dense enough to provide the tone and sustain that players expect from the SA-Series.
As originators of the thin, fast neck, the SA neck design carries on this Ibanez principle, providing playing comfort that translates into responsiveness and speed. SSH pickup configuration with 5-way pickup selector provides an impressive palette of tone textures, while the SAT Pro II tremolo bridge enables limitless full-tilt expression.
The Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation.
SA Thin Body/Sat Pro II
The curvy arched SA Series top maximizes the beautiful figured maple, and thinner body for more comfortable playability. The Ibanez Sat Pro II synchronized tremolo eliminates unnecessary resonance around the saddles by firmly securing them to the bridge plate. This keeps the saddles very stable even during frequent tremolo use.
