Very rare 1984 Roadstar RS1100 BK

After 6 months research Ive seen one other like mine. Does anyone else know of these? I read that only 100 were built and sold only in Germany. As far as I can tell there are only two on the entire internet and one of them is mine. Paid 120 bucks at a pawnshop. Cant upload pics yet.

You got that for a steal! It's true that very few were made, and, being high end Roadstars, they're bound to be pretty nice. I'm not 100% sure of the specs - maple topped basswood body; ebony board (?); Hardrocker Pro trem; Super 58 pups. So, it's more or less like the RS1000 but black.

There was one on French eBay, I think, a while back and the guy was asking about $800-900, can't remember.

I saw that but didnt put two and two together. Mine is the exact same. Will post pictures soon. Even Google isnt much help. Like I said,Ive only seen two in 6 months of intense research.

That's a nice guitar. Early 80s Japanese Ibanez guitars are under-rated, in my humble opinion. Just be careful not to equate "rare" with "good" . . . there are some rare guitars out there that are rare because they sold very poorly, for good reasons.

Peace

I once had a Roadstar 1010 Steve Lukather. A really beautiful guitar, but the sound was unfortunately bad. No sustain, just a short "plop". But this could be a exception
