Price : US $332
This is a 1993 Ibanez EX3700 (Experimental RG) with an awesome dark green chevron maple top.
I purchased this guitar here on eBay a few months ago, and reconditioned/rebuilt it as a project. This is a rare guitar, one of the first Ibanez RG-style guitars made in Korea. The EX-3700 was the top of the line of the EX range this one is an excellent example. Here’s links to the catalog scans:
After I received the guitar, I disassembled it and gave it some due attention. I installed a Seymour Duncan TB-14 from my Charvel Standard, a SH-2N Jazz Model in the neck, and a DiMarzio HS-2 is installed under the factory XS3 cover in the middle. It sounds great with these pickups, and everything works right. Custom gold pickup rings, and new mounting hardware (screws, etc.) were installed. The original LO TRS trem is in great shape. The quality of the guitar’s construction from the factory is nice as well. The maple neck is clean and fretwear is practically non-existent. The guitar has a TKL case shown.
The guitar is not in mint condition, but is in very good shape considering its age. Cosmetic issues: One of the locknut mounting screws is frozen and stripped and a very small scratch exists by the frozen screw. I didn’t want to mess with it since the neck on these guitars is hard to find. There are a couple of small dings on the body. Some small areas as viewed from the side are discolored – they are under the clearcoat and are original to the guitar. Nothing major though and it looks really awesome.
