1977 Ibanez 2470 L-5 copy FOR SALE ~WOW~

Posted by Kirk Edwards on Tue, 04/22/08 - 02:26:38.

This is an awesome, super rare guitar. Ibanez model 2470 SOLID CARVED TOP L5 copy from 1977 with Tamura signed label, Super 70 pickups, and original case. Let me start with the sound.....well......I would put this up against any L5ces! It is fat and warm, and really nails that Wes tone. You just know…when you play even the single notes – It exudes that vintage ambiance or ‘atmosphere’. You almost expect to hear Tony Bennett or Diana Krall start in.
This model is not to be confused with the laminated 2460 or 2461. The playability is great, with low action, super straight neck, and perfect frets. The Ebony fingerboard is in great shape and has real MOP inlays. The wood on the solid top is beautifully grained Spruce with lots of rays. The finish has an intense patina (yellowing) and amber coloring especially to the binding.
This gem has a nice dishing (arch) that looks different than the laminated guitars.The back is a really gorgeous hard maple with very unique flame and figure. The level of craftsmanship is very high. You can tell these guys were loving their job. There was a finish crack repaired by the waist on the top.It was sealed and laquered. It did NOT go through the wood! It is totally stable and should not cause any further attention. It is a pro repair. Some wear on gold hardware, but in nice shape for 31 years old.Tuners upgraded {no extra holes} to Gibson/tulip-grovers. Originals also included.I cant say enough about what a great instrument this is! I planned to sell this months ago but just couldn’t get up the heart to part with it. They are getting very hard to find, and are quite a bargain considering that they are every bit as good as a Gib. Definitely a pro level guitar. The CASE has a split seam and requires some attention. It’s a nice case though with arched top and bottom sides.
Selling to get outta hock. Feel free to ask all questions. Phone number available for serious buyers.
