1982 Ibanez Rocket Roll II

I just saw an add for a 1982 Ibanez Rocket Roll II. I can't find alot on this guitar on the WWW, and I was wondering if anyone here had some experiences with this piece of gear. It's a red Flying V model, and as far as i can see it has a Rosewood Fingerboard. I don't know what kind of wood they used for the body and neck, but my best guess is Mahogany.
Anyway, the guitar has some dings, but nothing serious, the tuners have been upgraded by newer Ibanez ones.
The sellers is asking about 400 euros, but I think I could get this one for about 300 or 350. I was wondering what you would pay for this one.

Thanks in advance,
Kevin

(As this is my first post I can't post any images yet, but I could PM you if you're interested)

as far as i can tell, they are solid guitars, and people who have them tend to love them. I'd offer the guy 300 and see if he bites. best of luck!

First of all, thanks for the quick reply!
I think I'll make him an offer of 300 somewhere this week, the guitar has been on there for about 2 weeks, and he says he's in a hurry to sell it.

Once again, thanks for your reply!

Re: 1982 Ibanez Rocket Roll II

sounds like an RR-50...... I think the RR-400 is a set-neck guitar while the RR-50 is a bolt on, but I'm not sure about that. The body is basswood with a birch veneer.

300 euro's is an awful lot for that guitar ($432 USD). I wouldn't pay any more than 210 euro's (about $300 USD). If it has the original super 70 and V2 pickups it may be worth an extra $50 (35 EUR)

I think Bob Mould played one of these when he was in Husker Du. He rocked it.



His was a RR Senior, though I think.
