    Old school Ibby I picked up in a pawn shop in Brooklyn a couple of years back that I intended to restore but, as it turns out, I'm never gonna get around to. It has at some point been converted to fretless, not a bad job at all, but the truss rod cover, original bridge pup and preamp were missing. You'll want to replace the jazz pickup with the proper model Dimarzio to match p pickup. The body has a few dings and scrapes and there are two screw holes for a thumb rest. This will make a fun project or just leave it as is.

    Included is a modern Ibanez preamp configured to use all of the holes in the control area. I don't know what model it is but I do have a schematic I can send you.

    Right now it's wired passive with V/V/T. The chicken head knob is just covering a potentiometer hole and won't be included:D

    Also includes a ratty, albeit original/functional, hard shell case.

    Priced at $440, as that's what I paid for it, shipped conus. Thanks for looking.

    Man, me too! I was on tour when I saw it and it was totally impractical for me to buy it but I've wanted one of these things since I was 14!
    I'd totally keep it and fix it up but I've got to buy a house: (

    As someone who is ALSO selling a fretless Roadster, I must say this is groovy.
