I'm Stumped.... What is this guitar????

I have NO idea what this is, maybe you guys can help me out.....

It's on CL and the owner says it's an x-series, But I've honestly never seen it before!!!

The owner is asking $350

Re: I'm Stumped.... What is this guitar????

Ibanez Arondite ADD120. Made for one year (maybe half a year) in '06 I think. It came out the same year as the Xyphos but was s-canned immediately it seems. Too bad. It looks like an inexpensive version of a Destroyer. IIRC it's a mahogany body. I'd probaby snap it up for the right price, though $350 might be a bit too mcuh I think.
EDIT: It looks like Mahogany with a set neck.

I agree it looks cool, and do also think thats a little steep on the price.

Mahogany set neck for $350 and ya'll say its too steep, but 3 grand for a basswood bolt on Jem is acceptable?

Great call Mike...... I found it with your info:

I think it probably sold for $350-$400 when new, so I'm gonna pass on it. It just looked like it might be a fun toy and a good score at the same time.

Re: I'm Stumped.... What is this guitar????

One of my students bought this guitar a while ago.

$350 US used, is way to expensive. They sold for (If I remember correctly) around $400 Canadian new.

The neck is fat. It's not your average Ibanez neck.

Re: I'm Stumped.... What is this guitar????

No problem RGTFanatic. I was looking at that one for a while. That and the RVX220. I'm a fan of inexpensive Ibanez guitars, especially the fixed bridge type.
IBZRG1527Prestige has a point, though. It is a bit of an ugly cousin - which probably doomed it from the start.

It's also kind of wrong that the full-size bolt-on MIK DT200 sold for about as much a few years earlier, which with a change of pickups is probably a MUCH better instrument!

Also, that 3/3 mini iceman headstock looks kind of Wolfgangish, no? LOL!
