You are bidding on a vintage (1976) Ibanez electric guitar-this model, more than any other copy guitar Hoshino introduced, caused Norlin (Gibson's Parent company) to issue a "cease and desist" order back in 1977...

This guitar is a copy was produced in 1976, but with the new Gibson approved headstock .

This guitar represents one of the more popular builds that Fugijen ever produced-these guitars really got Gibson nervous-first visual copies that were -some may argue-made to a higher quality standard as the Norlin Made in USA product. This guitar features :

Old School Logo treatment
Mahogany block body
 Epiphone pickups

This guitar could use a good cleaning ,  and some upgraded tuners-the stock tuners work well enough, but they were kinds cheap..

This "Player" guitar is covered with tiny pick scratches, pings and bings that come with a working 45+ year old guitar.  Look at the pictures-its all shown.

Please Note : All Guitars can experience minor changes during shipping due to changes in temperature, humidity and other regional considerations, especially if the guitar is shipped a long distance.  These changes will require minor adjustments for the instrument to play properly-if your not sure how to adjust the TR, take it to an experienced luthier for set up. In addition, many guitarists have particular preferences on how they like their guitars set up-it really is a individual choice With this in mind, please be aware of the cost of minor adjustments and/or set up to your liking should be anticipated whenever you purchase a guitar in the mail.

This guitar is in good condition and is a great looking head turner and a fantastic sounding guitar ! In addition to the expected small pings and bings from a 45+ year old this guitar has a small repaired blemish on this - an ancient repair to the lower bout of the guitar-not the prettiest of repairs (can be made to look better) but its stable and has been for at least 15 years, some laquer cracks and a fair share of small blemishes typical of a guitar of this age-this guitar is a PLAYER and priced accordingly,,,

This guitar has a few lacquer cracks around the nut, the neck pocket and around the control knobs. -its all stable -just ugly.  This guitar is a great player AS IS....or restore it to original-its got great bones ! 

This guitar is part of a large collection and has spent most of its life in storage. ...The frets do show some minimal wear, but those 70's Ibanez frets are fat and tall and can handle a couple of dressings/crowning as you wish.

This guitar is a fantastic player as is-the vintage Epiphone pickups (not original to the guitar , but very decent Epiphone pickups from an Epiphone LP..sound just awesome ! All the vintage snarl and bark yer lookin for ! ! Play it as is, or use it as a platform to find that perfect tone...
Ships in a gig bag . -not the prettiest bag, but it will protect the guitar ! It looks good on the inside, but is banged up pretty good on the outside....  Someone is going to get a fantastic bargain on this one, as I am out of room and have to sell some guitars... I have tons of feedback, will answer all questions so bid with confidence.... Shipping is a flat rate of $75 and includes professional packing and insurance via UPS Ground. international shipping.
