1981 Ibanez Artist AR500 AR 500 w/EQ
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-12-17)
Price : US $1,125.
Up for auction is the 1981 Ibanez Artist AR500AV. The finish is Antique Violin. This guitar has a nice Maple top and is a very heavy solid guitar. This guitar is probably the best guitar I've ever played. I will miss it. The back of the guitar has been buckle rashed pretty well as has the top edge at the rear. Certainly not one for the museum but an excellent player or for the collector who may be looking for one of these hard to find guitars. Here are some specs: http://www.ibanezrules.com/catalogs/us/1981/p05.jpg
A couple of the tuner pegs fall out when restringing but pop right back in and stay in when replacing your strings. This is pretty common but noteworthy.
I will include a badly banged up case, but it'll be ample for shipping and storage.
Any questions you may have, please feel free to ask. Good luck !!!

You are apsolutly right about this guitar. I wos wry lucky when I found my guitar. I'm still happy. This is amaising piece with irreproducible neck I ever had oportunity to play. I confirm that neck is best than eny Gibson have.
