NGD: Another Green Dot!

Got this about a week ago... It was in ok shape, needed a polish and the tremolo anchors to be doweled and re-drilled. After my local luthier was done it played amazing and looked incredible, although still in player condition with some nicks here and there. These early universes really are special. The neck profile is completely different from my 7620. I freakin love this thing so much. Also Its been years since I've posted here but I'm back!

Sorry for iphone quality pics:

Re: NGD: Another Green Dot!

Nice one. I saw one for $1,100 some years back before I knew about the used Jem/Vai market and the higher prices they can bring.

In the context of a used Epi MIJ Lennon going for $1,900 dollars I should have looked at the Green Dot and at least played it. The other used guitars they had were all cheaper like a Gibson SG Junior for $400 dollars. I had never seen any Ibanez bring in more than a grand in the past so I thought the Green Dot was too much back in 2001.

Re: NGD: Another Green Dot!

Who signed the headstock? I read Rich on the red one... is this one from Ibanez Rules?

Five springs... It must be an stiff trem...

Congrats and make your bed before showing it to the rest of the world!

Lol thanks and yah I was in a rush to get some pics! I added a trem spring because the others are prob a bit worn after 20 years and its tuned to standard and with all springs the action/knife edge is at perfect angle.

Head-stock supposedly signed by Alice Cooper. Not a fan, guitar just came with it but it doesn't really bother me.

Alice Cooper, yeah, he is one of my favorite guitar players, totally associated with playing UVīs exclusively. Sorry, could not resist.

Anyway, nice guitar!
