Pre lawsuit Ibanez Les Paul question

Hello all, I am looking for a new guitar. I have been looking at a pricey Les Paul because I love the 60's slim taper neck. However, once upon a time I had a 1976 Ibanez Destroyer which I loved. I have always liked Ibanez guitars, I have a few still. Possibly due to the fact that they are not "real" Les Pauls, when you can find them, the pre lawsuit copies seem to be a pretty good bargain. Anyone have experience with them? Neck profiles, pups etc. I have to think if it's pre lawsuit that dates them to the 70's and they made some pretty fine guitars back then.

Re: Pre lawsuit Ibanez Les Paul question

I got a very early 1970-1971? (pre-serial#) model 2398 back in Feb. The neck feel (to me) is close to a wizard II RG neck. I love it, It came w/no pickups so I can't say anything about the stk pickups, I put a IBZ/F1 in the bridge & a SD Custom in the neck & wired a push/pull coil tap to it as well. The next time anyone gets really bad "GAS" they should buy a old Ibanez les paul copy.....just great guitars...There are some 2398s on the bay right now.....good prices as well.....
Her's a link to my NGD for the 2398
