Price : US $4,050.
This is an Ibanez Reb Beach model prototype voyager hand made by Luthier Mace Bailey in the US custom shop in 1990.This guitar was aquired from Reb in 1995.This guitar is one of 3 koa models that were made for Reb (from what he had told me there were only 3,the original that he sold a few years ago,this one and one that had a strait headstock but not a real flame looking top. This was the second prototype and was used on stage and in the studio and in a few Winger videos. I believe this is the same guitar that Reb used in the '' WingerLive from Tokyo'' video. This was the koa top guitar that Ibanez used for all of the advertisements.The guitar has a heavy mahogany back with a half inch slab of flame koa on top, try finding ANY guitar that has that kind of top anywhere.Also comes with the original case with the touring/shipping info on it still though I removed Reb's address from it.The neck is strait and the 6130 frets are in near perfect condition. It has Reb's standard EMG pickups an 85 in the bridge and two SA single coils and a solid pau ferro neck with low action and an original floyd rose with Reb's signature shrink wrapped whammy bar. The guitar is still tuned in E flat as Reb had it when I got it.It is super clean for a touring axe with very minimal wear,considering how Reb's guitars get beat on the road, this one is a survivor and was one of his favorites and it sounds incredible and is so unlike an Ibanez and is a far cry from the factory RBM's. In the photos, the guitar is shown without the gold mirrored pickguard, I took it off to have it duplicated as it had some wear on it from Reb using it on stage, I will include both
