The Proline No One Knows About came in the mail today PL650

Well me and BuddRoyce did a trade and I got her in today(thanks Budd)

1986 Ibanez Proline PL650 Japanese Release Only.. Its a oddball.. If anyone knows anything on these like how long they were made, What they originally sold for, or any info other than I have listed, etc.. I would very appreciative. Google brings up 43 hits and 3 are in english, 1 being mine here on jemsite LOL

Thanks
Brett


BODY
Basswood

NECK
Solid Maple

FRETBOARD
Rosewood

BRIDGE
Edge

HARDWARE
Cosmo Black

PICKUP'S
SUPER 7FT (N)
SUPER 7FT (M)
SUPER70 (B)

CONTROLS
1 Volume
1 Tone
1 DUO SWITCH on Tone Pot
3 TOGGLE

FINISHES
BK (BLACK)
CP (CRYSTAL PEARL)
CI (CHERRY ICE)
DWB (DEEP WINE BURST)

Im assuming this is Deep Wine Burst.. The Edge Bridge is non recessed, the tone knob has a switch in it to split the coils of the humbucker(its not a push pull but a actual switch like in a pedal), the humbucker has a row of silver poles and gold poles, the headstock logo is a very pretty off white color. If im reading correct its from 1986.

I dig it, its got a weird vibe going on.. Now to set it up.. I polished the frets and reconditioned the board. And I buffed the body out.. But now comes the fun part the setup

Thats pretty sweet man I'm diggin the color (like my midnight wine strat), all together sweet acquisition.


Whats the neck profile? And hows that Super 70, can you turn on all pickups at once?

Ok found out it was made December 1986 and was the 1361st one made that month..

Yes you can turn all 3 pickups on at one time. or any combination you want.. Hum split/Neck has a cool vibe going on

The Neck profile I would say is a mixture of a fender meets ibanez not thick not thin.. Inbetween very comfortable..

The Super70 is nice its very meaty in humbucker mode I would say borderline hot pickup, and also works very well in split coil mode although a little hotter than a strat.

Im telling you this thing has some vibe going on.. And for its age its in incredible shape.. A couple dings and dents but the hardware is virtually unaged.. The neck is def the highlight of this guitar to me.. Besides it weird look

Sometimes odd is good - awesome find

By the way, are those two singles active electronics?

The two singles aren't active. They're just in these cool cases. (I took the thing apart when I had it).

I hope you enjoy the guitar Ibanezcollector!! I'm pretty sure it's in good hands. For some strange reason that good looks soo much better when it's no longer mine!!!

Dare I ask how long you're going to have this one before selling it?


I actually really like it, strange they're so obscure. Nice colour too - I'm assuming it's just the pics that make it look lighter around the edges, or is that the actual colour? Either way, 'tis nice.
