Re: Ibanez Roadster II 1984 Japan MIJ

Great score! I love those old Roadstars, especially the 84-85 ones that had 22-fret maple-fretboard necks. Those are my all time favorite maple necks.

The only downside on the RS135 (your model) can be the trems. It was a very odd design since the trem pivots on a long plate instead of two posts or screws. You should consider disassembling it to polish (steel wool) and lube the contact areas. Even after that, gentle warbles may be the limit, but that's fine for most of what that guitar is suited for anyway.

Cool color, too!

This is the same model as Ron Thal's (Bumblefoot) swiss cheese guitar (his was black and '83). Was good enough for some amazing albums, the guitar should not be the problem.

Wow man.... Awesome!! An RS135COY (comet yellow)

The trem is the "Power Rocker". Like Strato said..... Its good for what it was, but it's no "Edge"

The string lock is the original "Top-Lok". I don't think the top-lock came out until '85, but if yous is a late model '84 it would make sense.

The price seem a LITTLE high to me, but if it's worth it to you.... Go for it!! I think you'll love the guitar.
