This is a vintage used 1978 Ibanez Artist - model 2617 - crafted in Japan.
This model has a nice German carved top in a beautiful natural finish. Front and back of guitar are pretty clean for its age. Gold hardware shows tarnish and wear from age, all controls and functions work fine. Headstock and neck are clean and free of any wear, dings or dents. Front of guitar has 3 or 4 small dings, the rest is very nice. It plays fine and has tons of sustain ( 9lbs roughly )
Serial number is L 785041, indicating December 1978 production.
Guitar appears original and unmodified. Neck area shows signs of previous damage/ repair - The cracks go up and into the very edge of the fingerboard and appear to have been previously filled - Playability is still excellent - these rare guitars are getting harder and harder to fine. There is a neck damage area.
