I believe that was one of two special runs done by Musicians Friend. By one of two, I think the other one that looked similar had roses on the inlay. Anyway, they were offered by MF in 2006 and were around $600 range, I believe.

Isn't there an overall pic, so we can indulge in the full effect??

I would like to see the full neck and a better view of the finish on the body!!

This has to be one of the ugliest Ibanez guitars ever made. What were they thinking?

I dunno, that inlay looks cool to me. The paint design sucks goolies (and the p-ups), but the neck seems a-ok.

Just noticed: no trem , a no-no

Well, old boy, it is just a vine after all - granted, ending with 'motif' further down, but still mainly a standard vine inlay...
