1993 Ibanez DT series Destroyer

Hi,

Im new here so here is me:
Mike
From: Netherlands
Music: Rock/Metal

This is currently my only Ibanez but at least one more will follow.
Anyone ever seen it/played it/heard about it? Let me know.






I replaced the bridge pup for a Super Distortion. Why? Cuz I had one laying around.

Grtz

Re: 1993 Ibanez DT series Destroyer

I rarely ever see that model with the original edge tremolo nice guitar! Ive also never seen ibanez use that particular font *dt series*.

An odd model indeed, the sharkfin inlays arent right. Can you tell if the top is a fotoflame finish or real maple? IF you can get me some pictures of the back with the control cavity covers off and id like to see a picture of the serial number/neck join on that thing!

I dont have all pics hosted on the web but I could mail you some more. I do believe its a foto finish. Its an F3????? serial which makes it 93 Japan. Same Hardware config as the RG550 but a wierd 22fret wizard II like neck.

The neck inlay looks like the korean style which makes me think made in korea assembled in japan, but who knows with this kind of thing. Obviously the serial number means japan. Nice guitar! Hows it sound and does it balance well?

That looks like a pretty awesome axe. Original Edge too!

It plays well, neck is good pick ups are fine. Just like the RG550's. I did put in a Super Distortion but the difference isnt all that big.
Balance wise its still an Explorer and with the backsite strapmount the whole thing tend to tip over. If you either make a stand like James Hetfield or lean back a little youre fine ;-)

Lets go up again.

Anyone got any info on this guitar? Production numbers, value today, anything.
Ok so we know its Japanese made axe but as far I can figure the neck is an EX?

Re: 1993 Ibanez DT series Destroyer

Well the serial number on the neck means fuji factory, so its not an ex neck or mongrel guitar, if thats what your getting at. I dont know if anyone would have production numbers on this, i would personally say very few as this is the only one ive seen and i live around these guitars.
