I've seen this guitar for sale on eBay, I'm gonna take a look at it, fortunately the seller only lives a few miles away from me.

Does anyone have any experience with this model? Are there similar guitars that you would consider better in the same price range. Bear in mind I'm a LEFTY

Yip, I do
my "Ibi" is a  SA 260. Looks bit different but is also a SA 260.
Its a very variable git sounding very "fenderesque! You know all my music and you know how it sounds, denis.
I just can recommend this git. Its quite a fast git and its light. Good for shoulders and back.
Ive payed 350 8 yrs ago /new). 
If youre  going to buy it, you wont waste ya money. I like it much.

I have a 1978 USA Fender Strat, has a great tone, but want something with more Sustain and faster action. Seems the Ibanez SA260 model is quite versatile in that you can produce many tones, so yeah hope I win the Auction.

If you want more "faster action" thisone is the rightone.   Has a pretty slim neck. Nothing for thick fingers.
It can sound pretty twanky cause its singlecoils, it can sound really mean in high distortion mode.
You can sound like David Knopfler or the spotniks and you can also sound like Jou Satriani or Robin Trower. In fact a wide range.
Have you any comparisons to other used SA 260 models in due to the price?
If you wont win the auction dont be sad, 350 isntoo much for new git. Also I dont know about the prices in UK. Its a favored model and you can get it everywhere and evreytime for new. So you can be sure that the instrument is in perfectly condition.
And you get a warranty. No matter if new or used, its a "low-risk-deal" I guess.

Price in UK new about 325, the one ebay, is nearly new, the seller only lives about 5 miles away, so I'll check over it before biding, it's buyer collects, so there will be less people biding, hoping to pay around 200 for it.  I do like a bargain.

Sounds nice, pricy, but it's UGLY...lol
Dam got an email form the seller on the ebay auction for the SA260, apparently it was his sons, who has already sold it. Never mind I'm a patient man, I'll keep looking, no panic... I will get a bargain just you wait and see

Like Denis, I find the Parker to have lots of nice features (but it looks like a mutant of some sort).  The guy demonstrating this little gem is a pretty serious player as well!

Hate it. Too much metal, too much weight. Killing the tone.And you need  a"toolbox" for a string change.
No. Hate it

I'm not sure if by getting the Ibanez IBANEZ SA260FML would really give me any benefits, since learning it is similar to that of a Strat, and seeing reviews on it in terms of sustain distorted sound being not that good.

so what about this one: Ibanez RG370DX

One may love FR systems or one can hate it. But theres nothing in between.
Im 2. category. A chap owns an expencive Ibi US Model. Veeery rare. Is an old git but has cost ~ 3000DM at that time. I played it and was rather dissapointed about the tone. Somehow "soulless". git looked wonderful, best hardware etc.  This construction doesnt support a wooden tone or a long, sweet sustain.
And when I have to dig out srewdrivers and suchlike. for stringchange......................UUUuuuuaaaahhh. Horror.
Id never change my cheap SA for his expensive noble git.
This is just my personal experience.

The best might be , you check a FR-git in your fav store. . You are the onlyone, denis, who can decide.
