The Ibanez SA260FM has a bolt-on neck and a mahogany body with a flamed maple top gives you both tone and eye appeal, while a Sat Pro bridge and the Ibanez True-Duo Bucker pickup system lets you get real single-coil or humbucking tone with the pull of a switch.

The guitar feels like a typical lighter, smaller S style body. Aestheticly, the SA260FM pleases the eye and ears with 22 frets an 5 way pickup switching. Just an "inside scoop" - The TrueDuo humbucker in the bridge position is extremely microphonic and does not like to be used for distortion. Otherwise, the neck and middle position pickups have a crisp, twangy Stratocaster-esque sound. The tremelo system works very well - better than a typical Fender trem. But, the Ibanez SA260FM seems to lack real bottom end and it just doesn't have a BALLS.
for this guitar, set your expectations high if you play freestyle rock. The feel of fingertapping, trilling, hammer-ons, and pull-offs is exceptional to great. The feel is a bit different from fender guitars but otherwise, great. However, if you are just beginning to play guitar, i suggest an acoustic because it will help players to become used to the basics. so like i said before, five starz
I bought this guitar because of the strong recommendations of a friend (professional player, and I also recommend it. The guitar can be used for all rock-styles, blues, jazz, metal...all a surprise in a low-priced guitar
If you want a guitar in the $400 range, this is it. I can get a lot of variation with this, but have a problem with fret buzzing from the low action and tuning. Also, the bridge will get out of tune if the trim is just touched. But it looks AWESOME and plays good.
I have had this guitar for quite a while, and absolutly love, never had any problems. The floating bridge is a must have. Easy to up grade parts and beautiful maple top.
The Ibanez SA260 is an excellent guitar for both beginners and shredders alike. The Bridge Pickup gets a harsh bite thats great for Metal, but switch to the neck pickup and you'll get very good fat, warm tones as well. It's very light, which is good for anyone who doesnt want to lug a les paul everywhere. I'm using it with a Line 6 Spider 2, no pedals, no nothing, and it sounds fantastic. My only problem with this guitar is the fact that it only has 22 frets.
