Strange Ibanez inlay??

I've never seen this before. Supposedly on a set neck 2005 Ibanez? Is this legit?

Re: Strange Ibanez inlay??

I thought, "that looks like an SZ headstock," so I googled "ibanez SZ 2005 inlays" and the only one of the results with those inlays was from the seller's ad on Reverb. I don't know why you'd put a new board or custom inlays on an '05 SZ.

Good luck!

Peace

Mike

Thats where that image came from... Too bad that guitar is beat up. All the rest I saw have the single fiery inlay at the 12th fret. A few of the later ones have the fiery things at all the normal marked frets. Strange... but I really prefer the SZ320's with their normal abalone dots.

Re: Strange Ibanez inlay??

Could they be those stickers they sell that you can stick on the fretboard?

Mystery solved!!! He just had the year wrong... I should have just checked the serial number, it would have saved me an hour of web surfing to find the correct info.

Wild. I don't recall ever seeing those inlays. The SZs had the fire inlays the first time I really started to notice the stores stocking them.

I had a band-mate who bought one of the blue quilt ones with the single 12th fret flame inlay and it was a really nice playing and sounding guitar.

Same here... I did see a few that had the flame thing on all the usual frets too. I like the look of the ones with the single flame, but in reality I need fret markings!

The catalog page I posted was 2007, so it must have been near the end as they were discontinued in 2008.
