Hahaiah is an angel. Most likely done by a previous owner. Strange.

Although it looks like original you could be right "The Euphor" .If you are right it must have been done by a super luthier by previous owner.
Thanks a lot and i wish somebody gives me an answer for sure.

Hahaiah is the refuge, the ultimate protection against adversity!
He governs thoughts and dreams and reveals hidden mysteries to humans. He stops misfortune and shows his protégés the way to better situations. Protected against bad influences, they will combine luck and love.
Hahaiah wants his protégés to have high moral standards and pleasant manners. He helps them to be wise and spiritual. With providence on their side, these carriers of love can show their love at different levels. They can be spiritual and passionate. They will want to bring peace and comfort to those in need. Far from being selfish, they will want to give harmony and protection around them, without limits. Just and energetic, they will be dedicated and idealistic. Intense and expressive, they are also very sensitive, and can excel in expressing their feelings through art.

There you have it.

Regards,

JP

It's not an original Ibanez logo, because Ibanez doesn't do custom logos. It'll be an addition.

That does not mean that Ibanez did the inlay. Lets take a new car for instance. Its very common for someone to order a new car/truck and have dealership or aftermarket items done before delivery. Case in point, I purchased a truck new that had aftermarket seats, running boards and spray in bed liner installed. But the mods were not installed by Toyota, it was sold at a dealer and was new.

Truth is that I dont hate what the inlays meaning is....especially with the guitar its on (always thought that was an angelic looking guitar).

You are absolutely right JH.
I like it very much too on this angelic guitar and seems like the meaning of the word couldn't match more to any other instrument.
As for your example you are probably definitely right but the only thing makes me believe it's an original one is that the local dealer here is so unprofessional that i'm sure if a client asked him for any extra on a guitar he would refuse for sure.I prefer go shopping on internet if i need something than go to this guy.
Who knows maybe a buyer in Japan asked for such an inlay and Ibanez send the guitar in Greece by accident.
Thanks a lot JH

I worked in a major guitar factor years ago. This company also wouldnt do custom anything.....except....we did custom stuff all the time!!!!

The engineers would do custom inlays, paints, woods for artist and VIPs all the time!

We even made a US Flag acustic guitar that was given to US President Bush Sr back in 96?.

Come to think of it we did custom guitars for sales contest winners, distributors and other people for awards.


Whatever the case is that guitar has a story!
