Re: Ibanez L5

Ibanez L5 copies were produced in Japan from about 1974 to 1979. Early models looked exactly like Gibsons. The guitars were available in both electric and (in very small numbers) acoustic versions. Finishes were sunburst and blonde. Due to pressure about copying from Gibson's lawyers Ibanez tried to evade copywrite infringment by changing the shape of the headstock to a rounder one (late 70's). Unlike the gibson L5 most Ibanez copies were made from laminated wood (though some solid top models were made). Many players actually prefer laminates as they are less suseptible to acoustic feedback. Most models had rounded (venetian) cutaways but a small number featured sharp (florentine) cutaways. The model is becoming increasingly collectable as a cheaper alternative to the real thing but, because most owners are reluctant to part with these fantastic guitars prices are increasing rapidly.

Ibanez GR520VS

Known as Ghostrider? Had one, looking to buy right now in fact. Have bid on e-bay. Heard of two this week. One in honeyburst in x cond. w/case for $429(Ed's Guitars) and the one on e-bay, present bid of about $466. Greatest little gutar for money, and looks good, too. My first one(94)cost $525.

ibanez artist electric guitar

hi
i've got a Ibanez Model Artist Electric 12 strings serial number
1(or I)785389 just like the pat metheny's ibanez Electric 12 STRINGS
help me to identify the year ...and maybe the price...
she is in a perfect state
thanks
hobo

Re: ibanez artist electric guitar

The first letter of the serial number, "I" in this case, is the 9th letter of the alphabet. This signifies the guitar was made in September, the 9th moth of the year. The following 2 numbers are the year. So, your guitar was made in September 1978. Nice guitar! Worth more than a few bucks, maybe $800-900, if it's in excellent condition!

guitars by Ibanez

I have an Cimar guitar it is by Ibanez i would like to know some info. about it even though it is a bad guitar. I've never seen one like it with the same name.

Re: guitars by Ibanez

: One of my band members have an old Cimar Bass guitar. It´s a gibson SG copy. It´s not a very good bass guitar, but he bought it way back in -76, and was his first instrument at all. It´s worn out now of cause, but it hangs on the wall as an artifax. It´s dark red coloured original but has now a stone colour. It still works though.

Re: guitars by Ibanez

PS: I've tried over a dozen different guitars over the years, and I still always go back to it. One of the
best out there!!!!!!!!!

Re: guitars by Ibanez

Hey fellas, glad to know theres a few Cimars left. Only 500 made. Do any of yours have the gold plating intact?? 1985 vintage, and quite a chunk of change then. I paid almost $1000.00 for mine new. Twin humbuckers, and the lowest action I'd ever felt. and everyone tripped out at the 4 machines on the top of the head, and 2 at the bottom. Well write me back guys. If any of youy are in the San Diego neighborhood, we should get together for some pickin!!!
Joe Johnson

Re: guitars by Ibanez

I've got a black Cimar. Is this the only color they came in? I got mine while I was in high school in
late '84. Found it at a local pawn shop for only $100, still new in the box!!! (took the serial number off
just in case). If it was that limited of a run, is this a collectors item?

ibanez as120

hi !
could anyone give me any info (any kind) on the Ibanez as120 ? performance, construction, etc...

Re: ibanez as120

: hi !
: could anyone give me any info (any kind) on the Ibanez as120 ? performance, construction, etc...
: tx

hello: I have an as120 Ibanez guitar and they don't really hold a value. I have a white semi hollow body guitar and I have had it about 4 years. My guitar is in good shape and it plays really well. It has awsome tone. It has a maple body and mahogany fret board with abolony inlays, and excellent action. I guess thats all.

Ibanez Les Paul Custom

I recently found a 1976 Ibanez Les Paul Custom (D76....)Originally
white, but has aged to a vintage cream color. It is in 'vintage condition'. It has just enough 'road wear' the ususal nicks around the
edges, no belt rash. It is a bolt on neck, nice and straight. All gold hardwear, well worn, frets very good, gold pickguard action awesome. 'EMG Select' Hums. This thing screams, in tone, handling, and appearance, Professionally set - up.
What is something like this worth??
Any response appreceiated.
Thanks,
Jay Dee
