    I happened upon this guitar a few months back. It has the sustain block, but needs a bridge, probably new tailpiece and a knob. It has active electronics, flying finger humbuckers and a sweet looking mother of pearl inlay. This was a well played guitar, and has the wear to show it. I was told that this guitar was pre-Gibson lawsuit, but I'm not totally sure on that. Gibson sued Ibanez because these were almost exact copies of their double-cutaway Les Paul's. I was also told that the tone of this guitar would be much like that of a Les Paul. The serial number is K786990. It comes with a heavy duty metal plated case that has seen a lot of road time, but is still doing it's job well and all the latches still work and everything. It's a tank to say the least. I'm mainly looking to trade this for a bass,or some kind of vintage tube amp, but I would consider selling as well. Other pics available upon request.

    I'll check this weekend when I drive home, because I don't have the guitar here at school.

    I don't know, I'd really like to get a good P bass or maybe a Stingray, but I'm open to suggestions.

    Sorry, but I didn't check the spacing of the bridge this weekend. Fortunately, I'm driving home again this Friday, so I'll check it out then. Otherwise...offer me something guys! Bump!
