Purchased this about a month ago. It's a 2001 AV '75 Jazz From Ishibashi website: Now on my green shag rug: I installed a new bridge and will be replacing the tuners with Gotoh GB640s to improve the balance (and the look). It's in amazingly good shape for it's age. And there were almost no signs of abuse or even basic maintenance. The truss nut might have been tightened maybe once in it's entire existence before I got it. So I did a thorough setup and it plays like a dream!
