Exclamation Plz identify this guitar

Hey guys, my friend is selling this rare Ibanez guitar which belonged to his uncle , and im planning to buy it.

This guitar has not been used since some months ... and my friend has no information about this guitar. Can somebody please identify this guitar ??

Do u think the bridge pickup is Seymour Duncan sh-4 JB??

Re: Plz identify this guitar

Looks like it's in kind of rough shape. Also, what in the world about that bridge pickup makes you think it might be a JB?

Re: Plz identify this guitar

it's not original right? the pick ups are changed I think and I think its from the 70's.
I think it might be a Lawsuit model, so not sure if it has a name.

and do you have a serial code? then i can check the year

Re: Plz identify this guitar

My frnd is not in town right now... i can only get the serial when he gets back..

And yes it most likely is a LAWSUIT, i just saw a similar guitar, but with single-coil pickups --->

U think that guitar is worth buying?

Re: Plz identify this guitar

depends on the style you wanna play, and have a good play on the guitar, if it feels ok and it sounds how you want it to sound, its always worth it.

i bought myself an ibanez rocket roll II whiteghost 1982 lawsuit, hell those lawsuites are awesome

and one thing, Ibanez is always awesome

Re: Plz identify this guitar

Looks like a VERY heavily modified Blazer from the early 70's.

Re: Plz identify this guitar

They didn't use the Blazer name in the early seventies, but it definitely is something of an early seventies stratocaster copy by 'Ibanez'. It looks like the 'Ibanez 2375', so it's probably something like that.

Re: Plz identify this guitar

Wow, you guys are really good.. Yes it most likely is the Ibanez 2475 , with a humbucker in the bridge..

I'v found more information about the 2475 and it seems to be pretty impressive.

I think i'll go for it
