Need Help Identifying guitar

Hey i aquired an old guitar, looks like its been played pretty hard over the years, so im guessing its quite old.


theres not much to identify it by. but there is what appears to be the serial card on the inside. it read - " Duropa (maybe europa, its fairly faded) - D579TC - Top face"
There is part of the bridge missing, also if you can identify what part should go there, it would be greatly appreciated
theres a photo attatched also...


Many Thanks
Andy

Re: Need Help Identifying guitar

I'm pretty sure there were MII Ibanezzes in the 70s.
Where MII=Made in Italy, not Indonesia so it could've been a European Ibby.

When I first saw the pic I immedately thought Joe Pass (ES175) but his Ibanez signature (JP20) was a single pup jazz box.

You appear to be missing a bridge; Gibsons like the ES175 have metal tune-o-matic bridges, but some Ibanez jazz boxes have ebony bridges, including the JP20 which also has an ebony tailpiece. The Ibanez tune-o-matic inspired bridge is the Gibraltar:

But they also use the Gotoh® GE103B, or there is Ibanez' current wooden bridge (Chinese) the Art-W.
