Re: Newbie questions - sorry
The ad was on craig's list. I didn't see any ads for $300 but then again I wasn't looking in that price range. Great guy, we sat around and talked for about a half an hour. I am surprised he sold it. I think he had owned the guitar for about twelve or thirteen years. Bought it off a high school buddy.
I was looking for a project guitar as long as it wasn't ply. Finding this one as a project guitar was jackpot for me. No need to buy a lot of things off the bay.
My plan is to strip it down. Fix the neck, of course, (nice walk through on Ibanez Rules), and repaint it something a little more bold, (nothing outlandish). Hardware on it is nice. Gotoh machine heads. P'ups sound really nice. Not sure what they are. The neck says V1, the middle says S1, and the bridge says V2. They need the rust sanded off but that is easily done.
