Ibanez wasn't making Roadstar IIs in the mid-60s.



Do you have one? Are you looking to buy one? What do you want to know? It's not important if WE like it. Do YOU like it?

Just trying to find out any info about it if not 60s model has to be early 70s model. I was hoping there be a made IBANEZ freak who knows these like the back of his hands.

AFAIK Roadstar II wheren't there until the 80s. They where followed by JEMs, RGs, S, Radius etc... so my guess is that your guitar is about 20 Years old (maybe less). If I am not mistaken some Roadstars even do have the pointy headstock, that would make the guitar a least 80s one.

Have a look at Blue Horizon, maybe you find some pictures there (and just try all the Roadstar-Pics).

Or even better at: Ibanez Register, loads of pics there... go to 'Gallery' for different models.

There's a guy at ibanezcollectors.com who's handle is Mr. Roadstar. He can answer any other questions you might have about your instrument. Just drop a line in the "Cool Contemporary Electrics" section, he'll fill you in.
