Re: NGD #2375

Huh, nice score, man. Has it been under someone's bed all these years? Cleanest one I've seen and ashtray cover to boot!

Somewhat unusual in that there's no trussrod cover or walnut plug at the headstock, which is typical for these guitars.

Re: NGD #2375

Actually this is one of 5 guitars that survived the Train Wreck back in 1975 in New York area. It was in the rail workers attic until he passed and his daughter found them and sold them off.
These have been labeled the "Crazy Train" guitars. It is new NOS and unplayed, original case and case candy as well. Un-opened.
It shows up today.
The mid 70's Ibanez didn't have the truss rod opening at the headstock.

Re: NGD #2375

Mmm and a cool story to go along with it. One doesn't see many 'time capsule' pieces like that.

Very interested in your impressions when you receive it . Good things are often said of these MIJ Strats.

Re: NGD #2375

There is "some" documentation floating around on the web to these. I have the serial numbers of 4 of them so far, wish I had them as well! Yeah I am excited to see it, sadly thou it will get cleaned if needed and stuck away........

Oh yes these were some of the best of the best copies out there and produced by the best Japanese manufacturing plant of the time.
