happy camper
Niall M, 26.12.2018
i bought this primarily for practice and gigs, so everything really. This guitar isn't too expensive, but it's solid and has a big array of sounds, hence it fits the bill - an all-rounder. For perspective, i have an 80's USA strat which i treat like an ornament.

beautifully finished, ergonomically perfect (for me), and many diverse sounds from this guitar - the new resolution single coils are very good, as is the new tremolo, worth bypassing the older sa series for this newer stuff imo. jatoba feels fine, lets see how it holds up after a few years of use; it actually feels smother than rosewood?

for what i paid this is great value, highly recommend to an intermediate player, and delivered in the blink of an eye, thanks Thomann.

C'est ma deuxième guitare commandée chez Thomann
Guitare livrée conforme au délai annoncé excellent emballage comme d'habitude.

Belle guitare belle finition pour le prix.

Pour les réglages ils sont fait en usine(chine) car il y a de fortes chances que thomann ne s'en occupe pas , j'ai du passer du temps.
Au début difficulté à tenir l'accord mais avec le temps et quelques réglages ça s'arrange....mais je vais changer pour des cordes Elixir de même tirant 9/42
Le manche est parfait on glisse bien dessus .

Les micros son convenables et permettent de nombreuses possibilités

le vibrato est agréable si on ne force pas trop.

En résumé trés bonne guitare pour le prix à voir dans le temps mais il y a la garantie thomann....alors....

Wie erwartet leider nur mittelmaß
The Captain, 15.10.2020
Um es vorweg zu nehmen: Die Gitarre ist dem Preis angemessen.
Nicht mehr aber auch nicht weniger.

Ich besitze bereits 2 Gitarren aus der Ibanez S Serie. Beide 470 stammen aus den 90igern aus Japan. Leider sind die vom Finish eher bescheiden (Naturholz und schwarz). Deshalb dachte ich mir, ich schenke mir die SA 160 dazu. Dass diese Gitarre qualitativ hinter der anderen Beiden zurückstehen wird, war mir klar.
Nun, ich muss sagen, dass diese Gitarre vom Finish genau meinen Erartungen entsprach. Tolle Optik und vom Handling her genau wie die Anderen. Keine Farbkleckse oder ähnliches, Bünde sauber verarbeitet und Hals gerade. Damit hat man schon mal eine gute Basis.
Natürlich muss einem klar sein, das man kein High End Produkt kauft, so dass doch einiges an Arbeit aufzuwenden ist, damit man ein spielbares Instrument bekommt.
Ich habe also die Bünde etwas nachpolieren müssen (die waren dioch etwas rauh), Die Bundenden sind aber sauber abgerundet.
Der Steg musste dringend nachgefeilt werden, weil die Gitarre keine Stimmstabilität hatte. Auch finde ich ihn, genauso wie die Bünde, ein bisschen dünn.
Die Mechaniken sind auch eher was für die Tonne. Keine lineare Stimmveräderung möglich (die Tonhöhen springen nur so um die 0% Marke herum). Das kostet Zeit und Nerven. Die habe gegen die Harley Benton Parts Locking Tuners 6L Chrome getauscht. Da waren also noch mal 38 EURO fällig.
Die Action war ganz gut eingestellt, spiele aber lieber mit einer tiefen Seitelage. Das Trussrod funktioniert einwandfrei.
Zur Intonation kann ich nur Postives fetstellen. Die stimmte nämlich 100%ig. Prima !

Jetzt ist die SA 160 eine solides Instrument.

AAABBBBEEERRR:
Die Tonabnehmer sind ein schlechter Witz. Keinerlei Charakter oder Power. Die müssen, zumindest bei mir, dringend raus. Da helfen auch keine noch so tolle Namen wie Resolution Single Coils oder Quantum Humbucker.
Das kostet also noch mal 100 - 200 Euronen. Das sollte man bedenken.

Alles in allem kann ich nur ein Kaufempfehlung abgeben, wenn man sich bewusst ist, dass da noch Arbeit und Kosten auf einen zukommen, wenn man sich für dieses Instrument entscheidet.

Fazit:
Die Spielbarkeit, Optik und Preis sind für die Ibanez SA 160 alles in allem ok.
