Bought from Ibanez Rules in 2006. Subject to what is now called their "platinum setup".
Signed by Steve Vai
in two places: below the bridge and behind the headstock. Both signatures are protected by varnish. The signatures were made after the Adelaide show on the 2006 G3 tour.
The middle pickup has been replaced with a Dimarzio Area '58. This is a definite improvement (nice Strat tone), but the original will be included separately.
There is a small ding on the top of the body's left contour, a larger ding - accompanied by paint chipping - next to the input jack and small paint chips beneath the bridge (invisible from above). See this Imageshack
album for details.
Other than that, the guitar is in very good condition. It hasn't been played in several years.
via Paypal. Buyer pays shipping. Will consider trades for the following:
- Handwired AC15/30s, Vox or boutique
- Small boutique Plexis, 18 watts or thereabouts (Reinhardt, Fargen etc.)
- Greco/Tokai/Burny lawsuit-era 335s and Les Pauls
I realize, of course, that these items are awfully specific. But still one lives in hope!
