Oh man look what I just somehow won on evilbay

http://i17.****img.com/08/i/000/df/a7/6e8d_12.JPG

$300 bucks and it comes with a case.

It looks really cheesy at first glance, but the shape is unusual. I'm thinking of a full paint strip with oiled wood finish. Or maybe black on gray with a circular saw blade patter near one of the curves, who knows. Any other ideas? I have no idea what the pickups sound like, so those might get a swap out too. He said it sounds scratchy, so I'll probably rewire. I think it has potential!

Edit: Fill in the four stars with the magic four letter auction site word.

I wouldn't repaint it if I were you, that's a rare Ibanez that doesn't come around that often, that's just my humble opinion though

Nice find!

Re: Oh man look what I just somehow won on evilbay

I used to own that exact guitar and I wish I still had it but I am satisfied with what I have now, so I am going to try to purchase another one as soon as I can as well. The V5 pickups have a pretty high output, here's a spec chart and it's the fourth one down:



DCR: 16.50

Resonant Frequency[KHz]: 3.20

Re: Oh man look what I just somehow won on evilbay

Thanks for the chart lordgrendel. I'll definitely give the stock pickups a test drive before deciding if they stay or go.

So what you guys are saying is I shouldn't repaint it? *ducks*
