I seem to have one. $40 at a refuse recycling store. Some probably assumed it was a cheap 90's RG type thing and treated it like a dog. Neck still good, but someone's poster painted it black, and flames that look to be done by a 5 year old. I'm gonna sand it down and see what's under there. Still has the Super Tap 6 PUPs in place, and all the original electronics.
I really like this guitar.
Someone in the know should drop in here and fill us in on this nice-ass guitar.

ibanez roadster

i have #796 from july 1980. i just pulled it out for a local talent show.
i was thinking of trading for a strat but it feels the same.

Ibanez Roadstar circa late 70's/early 80's

I bought one of these beauties 2nd hand in 1981 or1982...(cost me two week's wages back then...worth every penny!!)....best axe I ever owned...until some oxygen thief relieved me of it!

Re: Ibanez Roadster 1979 6 string guitar

hey, I have an ibanez roadster 6 string aswell, from somewhere in that time, i think 1980, but i cant find any info either, if you could, can you send me a photo? just curious if there the same?
all i have heard about mine is that they apparently only made 2000 of them, but im not sure how true taht is

Re: Ibanez Roadster 1979 6 string guitar

i have a 1979 roadster, haven't been able to find any information on it on the net, all i know is that it was no# 301 made in august 1979. i'll try and get photo up if anyone wants to see it

Re: Ibanez Roadster 1979 6 string guitar

I bought a '79 Roadster back in '94 in a pawn shop. I have never seen another one until tonight on ebay. If they only made 2000 of them, it would certainly explain why no one has them. It's a sweet guitar.

Re: Ibanez Roadster 1979 6 string guitar

The Roadsters you guys are talking about are the type RS 300 NT ( natural ) I've got one with serial number K805678, which indicates that it is from 5678th guitar of this type in the month November of the year 1980.

I've got a '79 Roadster that i picked up at pawn shop for $240 a couple years back. Definately seems like a pretty sweet guitar. Mine is identical to the one on ebay. I've had nothing but trouble trying to find info on this beast. Thats the first one i've seen. Again, if there were only 2000 made, i'm not surprised that they're hard to find info on.
