What's your view on this? Is it legitimate? The bridge plate looks dead wrong to me — much more rectangular than it ought to be. I fed the serial through the Ibanez serials data base which said it was manufactured in the World factory, Korea, in 2002 — so how come it has the new headstock logo? I think the assertion that the seller bought this for $1600 is fairly obvious horse poop, but hey. What the hell does "seller refurbished" mean in this context either? There's no explanation given at all. Because yeah, it looks new or almost so. And the machines look like the ones off the ATK200.
Hats off, detectives, we're going down to Russell St!* Start your engines!
I await your collective expertise.
