Livin' in the AYE-TEEZ! (The Ibanez eighties)

So yeah, sold 5 Ibanezes. Couple Prestige, a PGM500, a USRG30 copy (that fun maple I bought a few months ago but didn't warm up to)... and of course, it being me, I bought more than I sold (sell, you damn JCustom, SELL!!!!!!). so yeah, here's what I got.

USA custom - Get Me Out Of Here



RG425 with original Edge (not bad for 250 bucks)



RS530 with Powerrocker bridge



RG580B (also not bad for 400 bucks)



540PHH (what can I say. I love 540P's) (and thank you, gabriel)



RG765 prototype (and thank you, gabriel, once again)



annnnnnnnd the "you'll poke your eye out" XV500 in Dual Blue Burst



Plus, I have the team of Nate Perle (of Perle Guitars) and Rodney Reams (of Liquid FX Airbrushing) making me another 540PII with mahogany body which will be cleared for a natural finish and reverse headstock and ebony board with white sharktooth inlays. I'm gonna put a set of DiMarzio Air Classics in brushed nickel, a chrome Lo Pro Edge and chrome locking nut/tuners/etc. I'll call her the "NatNick" for Natural Skolnick. Should be done by mid-December, hopefully. My Xmas gift to myself.

Last but not least, Rodney is also painting the 540PSH I sent him a lovely seafoam green, since the white faded to a stinky smoker's teeth yellow and had some bumps and bruises on her. I also have a line on another classic 80's Ibanez that hopefully I can procure at some point. It's been a good week. :P

Awe shiz, i've been hankering for a 765 proto.

I'd totally trade my PGM for it.

I agree--the 765 proto is king of your collection!

Re: Livin' in the AYE-TEEZ! (The Ibanez eighties)

I used to have a 765 DY just like it back in the day.
I worked in musical inst retail for 11 years, from '87 up until '98.
We were authorized Ibanez dealers. One day the rep came in and he had a 765 and a few 565's.
I got the 765 with the case for 50 and 30 ( thats a huge discount ), the rest of the guys in the store bought the 565's.
It was my main axe for years until our band got an endorsement deal from Robin guitars here in Houston.
I sold it to some kid who utterly defaced and destroyed it.
When I think of all the cool Ibanez guitars I had back then....I kick myself.

Wicked? Are they possessed by demons??? You sold me demon possessed guitars? AAAAAIGHHH! :P

Yes, as we discussed, Nate will make you a wonderful guitar body and neck. It's good to know there's one decent guitar parts guy from the USA amidst the others we speak so fondly of in the vendors subforum.

Re: Livin' in the AYE-TEEZ! (The Ibanez eighties)

Do you find most of these things online? I ask because for being a guitar brand that's extremely out of style, old high-quality Ibanez guitars are completely AWOL from most used shops. When you do find them, it's usually a bargain because they're priced and treated like some Laguna kids guitar, but that's very rare in my neck of the woods. Usually they just don't seem to exist.

San Antonio doesn't have a great used market to begin with, and in the shops on Lamar street in Austin running the racks will be like "Fender, Gibson, Fender, Gibson, Fender, Fender, Fender, Gibson copy, Fender Copy, Fender, Gibson...".

Guitars 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7 come from the netherworld depths of hell known as the 'bay. Guitars 5 and 6 come from right here at home at Jemsite from member dgabriel713 whom, once I receive said axes, I will be proud to bestow his first iTrader feedbacks.

I just did up my old SZ520 as well with some DiMarzio Air Classics pups. Looks better than any ol' Les Paul, that's for ding damn sure.

HAHAHA LaGOOOOOOOOOOna. Greg Howe, I laugh at you and your sucky Guitar Center line of guitars!

That locking bridge on the 530 is the Pro Rock'r by the way. My RS400 is pretty similar without the maple top. I adjusted my bridge to float and it actually stays in tune pretty damn well. I like not having the locking nut right where it can cut my hand too.

Awesome guitars dude!

Yes, the Pro Rock'r. I KNEW that yet typed powerrocker. It's not a bad little bridge but I can see why they moved onto the Edge. Overall, it's a badass little guitar. Pickups are awesome in it and I wish Ibanez would bring back those EMG type pups in some form or fashion.

Nope, Only the 580B was ballback. Not sure what the rounded back was supposed to achieve. I'll find out when it arrives. 2 guitars arrived (the USA custom which is a f**king MONSTER and the RS530 mentioned in the previous post) and 5 to go.

AWESOME! I saw that 765 on CL a few hours before posted this thread and had major wood for that wood. Congrats on a bunch of sweet axes!
