Rare Ibanez?

I was browsing a local music store and asked the owner if he had any Ibanez Artists or had seen any recently. He takes me over to a case propped open and behold an Ibanez I had not ever seen. He said it was an Artist model from the mid 70's but I dont recall ever seeing one. It has the headstock of an Iceman, but with a RG looking body. Not exactly an RG, top was a little arched, and it had a set neck. light sunburst top, binding around the body as well as the headstock and a fixed bridge similar to a studio model. Anyone seen one of these or have any info on its rarity or value? Thanks.

Re: Rare Ibanez?

It'd be easier if you have a picture of it or something

Re: Rare Ibanez?

Sounds like a Ghostrider to me. But those date from the 90s not the 70s!!!

Re: Rare Ibanez?

Thanks! you are correct. This is it exactly except it has 2 of the gibson style speed knobs on it. Any idea what these are worth? I'll still post pics of it if any want to see em Monday but there are a few online and I'm 100 percent sure thats it.

Ok I did some searching and it appears this guitar is wayyy overpriced. Guy is asking $1250 for it.

I think I will pass.

Re: Rare Ibanez?

Oh yeah, I remember those... early to mid 90's. I thought they had a "Our vintage stuff meets PRS" kind of vibe. The small body looked silly on my 6'6" 270 lb frame..

Cool guitar, but I'm more an RG guy.
