26 Dave_K 1 month ago I've had two '70s Ibanez 'lawsuit' guitars and I wish I still had both of them. One was the 'Howie', the Howard Roberts full size archtop with oval sound hole and a floating humbucker, the other was an L5S replica, rather heavy but one of my favourite designs. Both were beautifully made. Only one problem with this guitar (at least for me): it was based on the earlier L5S type which had those odd shaped pickups -- low impedence on the Gibson original but just average passive units on the Ibanez. Their weird shape meant they were difficult to swap out -- I suppose a pickup maker could have fitted something better inside the original housing.
