Got one for sale? I think I've seen another Ibanez model refered to as Stanley Jordan signature. Something like the one he plays in the movie called... Have no clue, but he's playing a tune in a studio.

Re: Ibanez Stanley Jordan rare?

The pickups look more like EMGs than soapbars.

Nice guitar though.

true, but they're actually Ibanez humbuckers, see them here (it's called "IBZ" - look how they wrote "Hunbuker" on the left side of the page, hehe...)
about the Jordan model, the Ibanez: The Untold Story book says it was an arch-top RS1300 as a starting place (the arch-top is barely noticeable on the pics linked above), on which they've replaced the neck with a Modulus Graphite neck to accomodate Jordan's two-hands technique. the fretboard radius is dead flat, and Jordan's own models have got kind of a string-muting device mounted right upon the nut, which had the ability to dampen individual strings. Jordan was pleased with this model, and he had Ibanez building him a "jazz" model with the same features. then he switched to Casio midi guitars...
as always, Rich Lasner and Mace Bailey got the credits on this model. anyway, i don't know how much this model could be valued in the market, but i'm positive they're VERY rare and collectibles.

Did they go into production at some point or are the only versions around the ones they made directly for Stanley?

What a blast from the past! I think I remember an ad for these, but I've never seen one myself. I don't think Stanley played them for too long. I bet it's a cool guitar with that neck on it.
