Welcome to another fine guitar from The Old Europe! Please make sure to read the entire description below carefully, and look at all the pictures.

General introduction and background:

Incredibly beautiful Ibanez RS1010 Steve Lukather signature guitar, made in Japan by Fujigen in 1983. This is the older model with 21 frets and the non-matching headstock.

As always, the instrument has been serviced completely and is ready to be played immediately.

Measurements, weight and other specs:

-Scale:  648 mm

-Nut: 42,5 mm

-Weight: 3,76 kg

-Pickups: The original Ibanez Steve Lukather pickups, measuring at 12,23k (Bridge) and 7,21k (Neck), controlled with two push/push pots (Master Volume and Master Tone) and a 3 way toggle. The push/push pots allow splitting of both pickups into a very nice sounding singlecoil mode.

-Body: basswood

-Neck: slim C, jumbo frets, maple with ebony fingerboard.

 

Condition:

-Body: Very good condition with some traces of use, one bigger “dong” just above the tremolo (please look at the pictures); harmless lacquer fissures in the neck pocket (see pics)

-Neck: neck is straight, trussrod works fine, the frets are in good condition (8/10) with some tiny dents (little to no buzz). I personally do not think a refret is in order any time soon.

-Hardware: Overall in good shape

-Electrics: fully functional

-Originality: all original except for the tremolo arm, which was now replaced by a similar looking one that fits perfectly.

 

Sound and Playability:

-Playability and string action: The playability is excellent with a string action of 1,3 mm set up at the 12th fret.

-Sound: The bridge pickup delivers a considerable output and therefore can serve even harder genres than Steve did, yet the guitar is overall a very versatile piece, especially with the splitting options. It’s a guitar that you can use for an entire Top40 gig with no issues or worries. Please also watch the video.

 

Repairs, Service:

As always, the instrument has been serviced completely and is ready to be played immediately.

-Frets polished and fretboard oiled

-Electrics serviced

-Bridge / string action adjusted

-There are what I think 09 gauge strings on it that still do

-Ready to be played (just tune it up);

 

Auxiliary stuff:

-No original case or gigbag available. It will be wrapped well, and put into a sturdy cardboard box with lots of filler material. If you wish I can buy a fitting case at your costs.
