    I spotted this recently on ebay and just couldn't resist. Aside from missing the bridge pickup cover, it's in really good shape. Original case also. It plays and sounds awesome. I really couldn't be happier with this. I had one of these years ago and I really thrilled to have found this one.

    Hi.

    Congrats.

    I have a Herby, AFAIK a predecessor to Ibanez, and those copies are really good.
    Their current prices reflect that as well, especially on the NT's.

    The pickups may lose their magnetism, but if that happens, do re-magnetize them first before swapping to some other PU's.
    You'll be surprised.

    Regards
    Sam

    The store was asking $650. I found a couple others for sale on the internet and they were asking for more so it seemed like a fair price. Also, given that everything works and it's in nice shape I knew it wouldn't last long and I really wanted it.

    Here is a link to one of those others. This one is more but the bridge pickup doesn't work.

    Here is another, but if you read the description you will see there are some issues. If it's got a bad truss rod, I wouldn't touch it.

    Finally, I saw another on ebay for $875 but it looked pretty beaten up.

    The one I bought it is pretty nice shape for it's age and everything works perfectly. Also, it sounds really awesome
