Re: What year and model is my guitar ?

i have a artstar as50/wr serial number y009103176 could you please date and origin thanx allan

Re: What year and model is my guitar ?

I have an S Series CE F9749896 Japan

Cant find out much about it. Picked it up at a Pawn Shop. Nice guitar. Ideas of value?

Re: What year and model is my guitar ?

: Luiz, Ibanez date their guitars with a letter for tthe month, i.e: A for January B for february, etc. The two following digits indicate the year of manufacture. Therefore your guitar was made in July 1983, or at least , that is when the serial number was stamped on it.

Re: What year and model is my guitar ?

: I have an Ibanez Roadstar II Series, with number G831920. I want to know the year, and any more informations about this guitar ...

: Thanks in advance,

: Luiz Fernando

: Luiz, G, being the seventh letter in the alphabet, indicates that your guitar was made in july, the seventh month of the year. The 83 following the G indicates that your guitar was built in 1983, and was the one thousand nine hundred twentieth guitar to come out of the factory for it's model number for 1983. Unfortunately, the serial number gives no indication of what the model number is. Hope that helps. Good Luck.

Ibanez Kingtone guitar

Has anyone heard of a 335 shape Ibanez Kingtone circa early/mid 70's with the volume control knobs and tone switches on curved plate

help with cimar

i own a '73 to '77 Cimar lawsuit Les Paul. how many were made and how rare is this guitar today? also how much would this thing be worth??
thanks avery

Re: help with cimar

I believe that Cimar is/was a brand used by Ibanez for a cheaper line of guitars. I have a '70's bass guitar, which is based on the Fender Jazz. The paint has a couple of ripples at the edge of the body, which would have made it unsuitable to be retailed as an Ibanez, given the high quality of their instruments. (I also have three Ibanez 6 string guitars from the late seventies). By rebranding the instrument as Cimar, Ibanez could avoid scrapping an otherwise useable instrument. The guitar plays well, sounds good, and holds its' tune, but I dont think it would have any collector value, or be worth very much. I bought mine second hand about twenty years ago for $100.00.

Re: help with cimar

i agree i also bought a cimar and it felt like a ibenez the second i picked it up ad it played almost identical. so i think ibenez has been sellin guitars to save there scrap. VERY SMART IBENEZ, IM ON TO U!!!

I'm interested in it if you're looking to sell it. I've been looking for an ibanez archtop from the 70's.

What kind of paint (polyurethane, etc.) does a black Artist have?

Hello!

I have a 1980 AR50 Artist, black.

What kind of paint does it have?

I ask because there is a scratch I need to get off of it, and need to buy some touch-up paint.

Gibson sells an Ebony touch-up paint pen, which I thought I would use if it is appropriate. Gibson says "not for use on polyurethane finishes."

So I need to find out.

Thanks - -

Thanks for making the guitars

Thanks for making my two acoutic guitars. I will be headed to Peru Feb 10th for there 1st national day of prayer. I am a Christian artist and the guitars that I purchase will be a blessing for the people of Peru. These are the best latin guitars AEG10-Bk - 14 -03 (Black) and AEG1on - TNG -14 -02 (Orange) that I have ever played and I can't wait for the people of Peru to hear them, not only that but I was told that the concert which will take place on the 12th of Feb 2005 might be televised. So I am praying that they will sound good live as well as on T.V. Thanks

Ibanez Artist...what year and model is my guitar?

Hello:

I just got an Ibanez Artist...

I would like to figure out which model it is, and what year it was made.

It has 2 Super 70s pickups, 2 volume controls, 2 tone controls, 1 3-way toggle switch.

Chrome hardware.

Body and neck are black, and both the neck and body are bound with a cream-color binding.

Neck has dot inlays, which look to be fake mother of pearl, can't really tell.

"Ibanez" up at headstock is mother of pearl, as is the headstock design inlay.

Serial # is G805585.

Can anyone help? Model, year, any comments etc....?

Thank you much,

Richard

Re: Ibanez Artist...what year and model is my guitar?

I recently researched my Ibanez Artist, and found out that the model number gives the month and year the guitar was made. in your case G is July (A being January), and 80 is the year. The other numbers in the model number identifies your guitar as the 5,585th made by ibanez that month.

Hope this helps.

Ibanez #356

I have got a guitar that I know nothing about. Maybe someone can help me out. The note inside of the guitar says; "Ibanez Modelo No. 356, DESDE 1908, Nagoya Japan". The guitar is nylon stringed. Can anyone tell me how old it is, approx. how much it is worth?
Best regards
Mattias, Sweden

Ibanez 356

I don't know what it's worth on today's market. For what it's worth, I bought mine in 1971, one year after I met and one year before I married my wife. As I recall, I paid about $89 (in 1971 dollars) for it. I still have both the guitar and wife, and don't plan to give up either. If anyone comes up with more information on this model series, I'll be interested to see/hear it.

Re: Ibanez #356

Have the same guitar and are looking for information in the same matter. If you finded something out beside what noone wrote down at this page, please mail me.

Artwood acoustic

I have a used Artwood acoustic. As I understand it, there was, at one point, just an Artwood model (before the AWxxx models). I may be wrong but my guitar has AW on the head and just says "Artwood" inside the body with the serial number 9506365. I've looked on the Ibanez site and can't find any pertinent information. I was hoping some folks here could tell me a bit more about my (first) guitar. Thanks.
