Wow!! This is a beautiful extremely hard to find 1981 Ibanez Artist Model AR500 Made in Japan . Let me first say I really hesitate selling this wonderful piece of musical craftsmanship but finances say otherwise. The condition is great considering it is 27 years old. The top is very good . The wood is fantastic . The bridge has some surface bumps and a little rust on the pickups. Nothing out of the ordinary for a vintage guitar. The pickups are original super 58 and as far as I know everything on the guitar is original. The tuners are grovers. This guitar has the 3 band eq and sounds and plays so smoothly. It comes with the supercharge which is fed from a 9 volt battery and gives the sound a rather noticeably nice boost. All electronics function. The body is Mahogany, the top is Flamed Maple, and the fingerboard is Ebony. It has really nice Abalone/Mother of Pearl Inlays. Fret wear is minimal. There is a scratch as pictured on the side which is by far the most noticeable mishap. But this is minor I even think the picture makes it look bigger than it is. The back has some indentatations but as I have stated the guitar is beautiful to look at. Comes with original case which is a little beat up on the outside but in good shape within. I just restrung the guitar and it is ready to be put to work. You just do not see these for sale very often so seize the opportunity with a bid to win. Best wishes on your bids. International Buyers please contact for shipping info. Any questions feel free.
