Unknown Ibanez model in Istanbul ( Huge pics)

I was in Istanbul for the whole July, living in a Kadikoy area in Kadife street which is totally loaded with guitar shops and various jazz and rock clubs, when I stumbled upon this Cem Catib signature model and this is what it looked like.









Being too excited, I totally forgot to take a pic of the serial number, all I can say that it played just perfect and I spent like 30 minutes in that shop playing only this guitar when a film guy came in, asking if we could turn the volume down a little as we were interfering with some movie being shot just outside the shop .
The shop was really cool so if anyone happens to live in Istanbul don't forget to check it out. http://www.tntistanbul.com. Kadikoy is just FILLED with guitar shops, I've never seen an area like this in any country I've been to.
