NGD!1989 Ibanez Ex120

I just nabbed a 1989 ex120 from CL in vancouver.
Poor thing had stickers all over it.
Neck looks kinda straight, but it had 8s strung on it
Though to be honest, it doesn't sound that bad.
I'll post some pics of the cleaned up guitar prolly tomorrow, when i slap some 11s and put some new pots in Hopefully then, i'll record some clips
Chillin' next to my S420

I find it kinda funny how this guitar, which is the lowest of it's family, feels more solid than my friend's American deluxe

Congrats... I'm sure that for the $40 you paid you have special plans for a customization project?

Re: NGD!1989 Ibanez Ex120

I just rewired the electronics, replaced the crappy/scratchy pots, put in a non-scratchy 3way switch, new jack, old pick up. Restrung with 11s instead of the 8s that came with the guitar. Man, this guitar is pretty sweet. Kinda crunchy, does both clean and dirty nicely. I'll try to record with this guitar

Verdict: if you can get this guitar for under 100, GET IT.
