FS: Ibanez Frank Gambale FGM100 PS

Hi. I have a (I believe) 1991 Frank Gambale signature model Ibanez. This is, as I understand it, one of the original instruments signed by Frank and is numbered '943'.

This is a great playing instrument but it is in 'player's' condition. The previous owner inflicted a few dings and scratches -- I tried to capture these in the photobucket pictures but the pink finish combined with a cheap camera really didn't capture it. The worst is a chip around the edge of the body near the strap button. The outer finish is chipped away. It's probably 3/4" long. I have been told this can be built back up and repaired with nail polish but I have not attempted it. The guitar also does not have the original volume and tone knobs. I believe the strap buttons and locking nuts are also not the originals. There is some dimpling in the pickup mounting rings and a little surface rust on the bridge and neck bolts. The previous owner misplaced the spring cover -- I have purchased another and a cavity control to protect Frank's signature. The pots and pickup switch could use a little cleaning and lubrication. The case will support the shipping of the guitar but is really on its last legs. I would not tour with this case.

I believe the pickups themselves to be original. The frets are in great shape; this is, I believe, the best Ibanez neck ever built. The All Access Neck Joint is a huge improvement over my old 540S. It plays fast and sounds astonishing. The bridge is the original Edge Pro. These guitars are becoming more and more rare. I'm surprised Ibanez has not reissued these in some capacity. All in all a great player's guitar.

I'm asking $800 plus actual shipping and insurance but I will entertain other offers. I will accept PayPal (+ 1/2 of fee, shipping to confirmed address only) or a Cashier's Check. I wanted to make this guitar available to the Ibanez community before listing it on an auction site. Here is the link to photos of the guitar:

I had to remove link to post this -- please PM for my photobucket or search photobucket for User Guvnor513...

This is my first listing here on Jemsite but I frequently buy and sell on Ebay. My Ebay username is Guvnor513 where I have 100% positive feedback. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions about the guitar.
