Ibanez SA160FM vs Ibanez SA260FM?

I've seen both the SA160FM and SA260FM and they seem like good value for their price. Unfortunately I couldn't hear them both in the same store, so I can't compare them. The review of musicradar.com gives the SA160FM 5 stars and the SA260FM 3,5 stars. Side note is that the SA160FM is reviewed in 2012 whereas the SA260FM is reviewed in 2008.

What are the key differences between them? I know they have differend elements. I saw a review of the SA260FM and it showed up to be very Mmcrophonical. Which one has your preferene, also considering the price?

The SA160FM starts at 268 against 379 for the SA260FM.

All I can come up with is the Duo bucker system wich differs from the 160.
The sa260 fm has a volume knob wich you can pull up making the humbucker go single coil. So a bit more variaty in sound.

The major difference between the both is the price I think.

By the way...I just bought myself a SA160FM. played it now for 3 days and realy like the sounds I'm getting from it.

Greetz, Mike
