Re: Roadstar 'surf green' 1985
That's the next step, play it. I too like the combination. I was thinking of selling. It came with beat up strings and did play well, but a heavier gage than I like. I was trying to avoid becoming too familiar, or close, to it, as it is hard to part with something I have gotten to know. I too tried to find the color, no luck. It is definitely surf green, just like Fenders. It is original as well, as there is subtle fade, and you can see grain movement below the finish, which takes time. Why don't these hold value? How does Ibanez stay afloat with nearly 95% of their past models selling for a fraction of what they were when new?
One thing about Ibanez...there are so many models, variations, one gets dizzied just looking at one collector's grouping. They need some help in the design department I think. Or maybe that's how they fit in to the market with their niche? I know many fanatics stay close to them, their product.
One time I watched a similar, if not identical, body float away on ****...I thought it was close to 200. This would look nice with a maple neck, I thought, but was out bid. This guitar came up shortly after this, and I got it. When I saw the completeness of it I was determined not to change anything.
