    So I've picked up an old ibanez destroyer for about $70 that the previous owner started to sand back and rebuild but eventually got too lazy to complete..

    I'm just trying to find out some details about these things.. year made and all that jazz.. plus i'm not too sure what wood these are made from.

    Any info would be much appreciated!

    I have one. It was my first bass and I never let it go. They where made from around 1984 to 1988 or 1989 I think. Bought mine used in 1990 and it was 2 years old. I'll try to find a link to an Ibanez related site where I've found info on it... if it still exists. I'll post it later on, can't do it right now.

    That body looks like it has been altered to me. I'm no expert but I have three destroyers and none of them look like that. The pickup configuration is different than anything I have yet seen as well.

    EDIT: Looked around a bit and it looks like you do have an original destroyer there, just a later model that I have not seen.

    Cheers!
