NGD Japanese Destroyer

Picked this up from local [email protected]#$list, seller was asking 275 but I was able to get him to drop price because it was FILTHY and electronics were scratchy. However after some elbow grease and some contact cleaning of pots and switches all is working nicely. Cleaned up very well. Has a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and a Bill Lawrence USA in the bridge. Missing rubber ring on speed knob. On to the pics.

Re: NGD Japanese Destroyer

That's a BEAUTY and a STEAL!!! Great score. I had an Early 80s X-Series Cherry Sunburst one for a bit. Like most Ibanez MIJ Guitars it was a really great feeling/playing guitars.

Re: NGD Japanese Destroyer

The balance is not bad. If you position rear part of strap over the wing it sits perfectly.
