Help to identify please
Hi all. I hope that someone can help me gather some information about a guitar I have recently been given.
A friend told me some time ago that he had an “old guitar” up in his loft and that he would let me take a look and if I liked it, I could have it.
It turned out to be an Ibanez!! (of course!) Being a Fender player, I know very little about Ibanez instruments. I am hoping that someone can shed a little light on the matter.
What I know…
Its an Ibanez blazer series guitar, I don't know how old it is, but it is made in Japan
It has a fixed bridge with pick guard, with 3, single coil, hum bucker (I think, as with fender set up but with no pick up poles visible) configuration.
The serial number is on the classic style neck joint metal plate and it is H801202
The neck has 22 frets and the truss rod sticks out at the headstock end so that it is visible and adjustable without having to remove any covers. The neck appears to be made from mahogany and the truss rod is covered down the neck by a strip of bubinga/similarly coloured material
The machine heads/tuning pegs have nothing written on them but seem to be of high quality.
The headstock has the Ibanez logo in metallic gold and blazer series is written in black to the right of it.
I think that that is every detail about the guitar, except that it has a varnished, dark wood grain body.
If anyone can help at all I would be really grateful.
