1981 Ibanez Artist AR500 EQ flame top Ebony MOP
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-12-02)
Price : US $1,799.
Hello this auction is for a vintage 1981 Ibanez musician AR500. This guitar has a macassar ebony headstock overlay with mother of pearl inlays. The fretboard is made of jet black ebony with abalone/mop inlays. Frets have some wear but still have a lot of life left in them. The carved top is flame maple with a nice burst finish. Body and neck are made of mahogany. As you can see the back has some buckle rash. You can also see a battery compartment for the 9-volt batter. This guitar has an onboard EQ with an LED to let you know the EQ is on. Pickups are the super 58 pickups that are comparable to Les Paul pickups. Most of the gold is worn off, but they work just fine. All hardware and knobs are original. Backplate has just a few minor scratches. Body binding has turned a nice vintage yellow in most places. This is a vintage Ibanez collector's dream. Pickups work fine, EQ works, LED works, tuners work perfectly. Comes with a very expensive SKB hardshell case that fits the guitar like a glove. Postal money order is the preferred method of payment, but I will also accept paypal.
