info Ibanez LS300

Posted by Jan Voortman on Sun, 10/07/01 - 14:38:12.

I've got an Ibanez LS300 with seriesnumber 85101239T. It has a black/green/aqua-colored body. I'm looking for info about my guitar, like year of production, used materials and eventually original prices.

Thanks,

Jan

Re: info Ibanez LS300

I have a black Ibanez LS300BK I bought 25 years ago, in PA.
I think it was about $ 200.00.
I'm trying to find out how much it is worth today.

Re: info Ibanez Lonestar LS300

I too have a Lonestar Ibanez LS300 acoustic guitar, which going by the serial number was made in May 1986. I bought it in Australia a little after that for around $600, but I wouldn't sell it for three times that price today. It's such an amazing guitar because of the slimline neck.

I had played only electric guitars until I got this one, and the salesman in the music store told me Ibanez made the neck mainly with electric players in mind. It has an electric guitar feel and I loved it the second I tried it in the store. An advanced guitar student who saw me testing it asked if he could try it, and he said it had a superb feel and wanted to buy one himself.

Because the strings are closer together than on other acoustics, you can form chords faster and play licks cleaner and faster.

Does anyone know whether there are any modern guitars with this type of neck? It would be great if Ibanez re-released the LS300, but failing that what other acoustics have this amazingly easy-to-play neck? Anyone know?

Re: info Ibanez LS300 -- it's priceless

I don't know about the BK model; maybe that was a slightly cheaper version of the LS300. The acoustic LS300 I had cost about $500 in 1986. It's my all-time favorite acoustic guitar, and I would love Ibanez to re-release this guitar from the Lonestar series so I could get another one. Some connoisseurs who played them in the 1980s and don't have them any longer may pay $1500 or more these days for one.
The reason is not the fantastic spruce and rosewood used, or the neat-looking black six-strings-on-one-side tophead, but the well-proportioned thin neck. The genius who came up with the idea of using the dimensions of an electric guitar neck on an acoustic should have got the world's top guitar award. It was brilliant!
I played acoustic rock in the 1980s, then graduated to jazz chords -- which sometimes means you have to get to awkward fingerings fast. The Ibanez Lonestar LS300 is the only acoustic guitar I know that allows non-experts to get to these awkward chord positions fast and accurately.
Hey Ibanez -- how about re-releasing the Lonestar series?
This was like the Rolls-Royce of guitars at an affordable price because of the brilliant design. These days it would be more popular than ever.

ibanez ls-300 s/n.(84etc)

hello there
i have in my collection a 1984-5 ibanez black LS-300..
it has a couple of blemishes (minute) on the face and apart from that, like new.i also have a few name guitars of varying vintage and styles which it more than stands its ground with in all parameters.
these guitars are solid-and record beautifully in most mediums.
i am scaling down my collection some-what and i am looking for some-one who would be interested in purchasing this instrument for the right reasons and not just to have another guitar on the wall.
any ; that said if there is any-one out there interested in this exceptional instrument - get in touch and we can discuss it. i have had this guitar a long time now and it really does need to go to some-one who can use it get max enjoyment out of one of these unique instruments.
