Ibanez Musician MC500 NT rare 1978

This guitar is a beautiful example of a 1978 Ibanez Musician MC500 NT. This is the top of the line model and extremely rare in it's natural color. This is one of only 104 made in 1978, it's first year of production. It is one of only 267 ever made.

Electronics include: 1 Volume, 1 Preamp level, 1 3-way pick up switch, 2 trisound switches, 3 band EQ, 1 EQ/Preamp on/off.

It is in great playing shape showing a host of nicks, dings, swirls and buckle marks. The golden hardware shows typical wear from a life of Rock 'N Roll. It is all original to the best of my knowledge.

The neck is straight, the frets have massive life left and it feels great with the ebony fingerboard and wonderfully colorful abalone fret markers.

It has recently been set up with 10s and the action is awesome! All the electronics work to perfection with no scratches, hisses or unwanted noise.

This beautiful guitar comes with its original, hard shell, Vault case!

It will be packed very carefully and shipped promptly after payment.
