hey Ibanez dudes


85 Roadstar II


Not that I doubted it, but I'm actually surprised how many Ibanez owners this thread represents. Very cool!

They're always great playing guitars.


I like the way Ibanez necks play. I’ve owned several as main guitars. They also stay in tune well. I’d kill for that black one with the Strat pickup configuration that Proteus has.


Troy, the black one belongs to archtopisking, not me. I have too many guitars to shoulder the karmic burden of owning ones I don’t. And I don’t want to be responsible for your committing envious mayhem!


Aw! Sorry. Very nice guitar, Archtopisking. No mayhem or chance of real violence. I bet it’s a sweet guitar though.


You guy's got some nice one's. I have this one.

Wow. Now that's a keeper for sure!


Sorta got that Paul Stanley thing goin' on


I was just digging around in the depths of my guitar closet and found an Ibanez I acquired for peanuts from the Musicians Friend catalog distribution center located here in KC. They used to have a small retail store off to the side of the huge warehouse, and all the scratch & dent and damaged equipment that was returned would be available for sale there, often times at pennies on the dollar. It was a very dangerous situation, and I often would visit and purposely leave my wallet at home! They have since shut down the retail store (liquidation center), but not before I got quite a few gems over the years.

This one had a broken/missing tailpiece with only the tail-bracket still screwed into the butt-end of the guitar. The floating bridge was also missing. I bought the current inlaid rosewood tailpiece on Ebay, and had the ABR style bridge sitting around from some other project. It plays pretty well, but is clearly a Jazz rig. She was a gorgeous wall-hanger in my condo for quite awhile. When I moved 3 years ago she went into the case, only to emerge this morning! I've got almost $200 locked-up in this guitar... so I'm going to keep it out all weekend, and give it some love!


That's one of the "Artcore Custom" line. Amazing guitars for very little $$$
