Ibanez SA160FM Electric Guitar

Ibanez SA series have earned its own space in the competing market and thus assures the manufacturers to enhance the models as per the trend in the freakily growing industry. The new arrival of the SA series is SA160FM Electric Guitar. The transparent gray burst finish has brought the instrument a bold and stylish look. The arch on the top is perfect for a sophisticated appearance. Ibanez SA160FM is a versatile and highly playable electric guitar looks comfortable and sounds as it has to be.


The SA160FM series, the successful SA patterns arrives once again with newly added features and slightly better and brighter looks. The body is of mahogany and its top is improved greater than before with rounded and carefully carved top is perfectly matched with the headstock. This body is equipped with bolt-on 3 piece maple neck which is suitable for the fast playing guitarists. The usual SA series have been much improved and that is of course appreciable. This model is for right-handed people. They have simultaneously launched left-handed model as well. Normally all the SA series are designed for players who want their S model comfort which combines lightweight but at the same time with heavier mahogany tones and would be friendlier if it has a flattened back. Overall design suggests that it is designed with serious attention on the market expectation and meeting the players comfort.

Frets and Pickups:

Fret board has some 22 numbers of Medium sized frets. There is uniqueness in talking about the pickups in this instrument that is, this is first introducing model with True-Duo pickups in a dual humbucker configuration. Other than that SAT Pro II Bridge is standard for all the SA series which easily makes simple yet powerful and effectual guitars of any given musical situation. Generally, SAT Pro II provides smooth surface for players who are right-handed. The SSH pickup configuration and synchronized tremolo system is being the reason for extended and outstanding range of tones.

Sound Quality:

It sounds majestically as always experienced in Ibanez. We could feel the home-bound advancements once we plug in the instrument. The butter coated playing experience can never be missed and the tone of the timbers, the result of mahogany and maple combination just rocks and makes the coil not producing sound but music like singing.


The transparent gray burst SA160FM electric guitar looks good and sounds absolutely good but bit expensive comparing some of the rivals competing with the same features. Pickups are sure for what players are looking for, adding some fastness and spiciness in playing. This model is enough for daring on road shows and studio shows where we are left with this one single electric equipment.
