Someone needs to buy this it's 1 of 11 made!!!

Sigh I REALLY REALLY want this but...not enough bucks for me to get it...
This is one of the lowest production guitars ibanez ever made...even rarer than a JS-4 (electric rainbow). it's 1 of 11 and that's straight from jim donahue's mouth.

I don't dig those as much as I always thought I would. Cool guitar, though.

1 out of 11 smells like BS for such a guitar, but maybe some combination of parts...

Looks very nice, but not worth the price

It has an inlay that says "Super" kind of like those old "Custom made" inlays back in the day.

Well, I assume you don't know who Jim Donahue is..He was a product manager for Ibanez.On Ibanez vintage page http://www.ibanez-vintage-page.de/ he has/had a section called "Jim Donahue answers your questions" Here is the description..
"Jim Donahue - a former, long-time employee of Ibanez, the driving force behind www.VintageIbanez.com, and now the president of NoahJames Guitars - wants to answers your questions"

Here was his response to questions people posted on that site asking about production #s for the '86 and '87 AR350.

"The guitars were not cheap (because of the dollar to yen exchage rate)

I only remember seeing the Pearl White and the Transparent Blue but the production records state they also made a Fire red one.

In 1986 they made

AR350PLT 176
AR350MST 63
AR350FRT 20

in 1987 they made
AR350PLT 62
AR350MST 22
AR350FRT 11

They did not make any in 1988

So that is it,

Very limited piece

JIm Donahue "

go to ebay and copy/paste the number.

jl i know who Jim Donahue is and ok, its not BS. Still, it looks too "common" somehow. I don't know if I would buy it, though to be completely honest, I was looking for exactly the same look some time back when I had a Les Paul-ish GAS problem.

Re: Someone needs to buy this it's 1 of 11 made!!!

Yeah as Dino has said 31 made over the 2 years in that colour and 354 in total in '86 and '87 in the 3 finishes. Still it's a nice guitar. I see it didn't sell so maybe you'll get another pop at it dude.

EDIT: Just noticed that the seller ended the auction early because the item is no longer available. Probably went in a private sale.

I guess that's not really a crapload, but hardly a JS rainbow. I'm sure whoever scooped it up will be happy.
