Built for versatility, the SA is musical chameleon. From clean rhythm to crunchy blues, all the way out to the most molten of metal, the SA shines in every genre. Its arched top emphasizes the beauty of the SA's many visual treatments, from straight-ahead solid colors to a stunning quilted grained maple with transparent finishes. Combined with its SSH pickup configuration and simple synchronized tremolo, the SA can traverse any musical territory.

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.
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.
