woohooooo i got a ROADSTAR!!!!!

this thing is awesome, it has lots of nicks dings and bruises on the body, and someone overtightened some pickguard screws and its broken but the neck is tip top, and THE SOOOOUND!!!!!!!!!! i just fell in love with it, i havent stopped playing since i got it 4 hours ago (well i just stopped for dinner and posting this )

its a '83 Roadstar II, RS205BS, sunburst... i love the neck, it "has no fretboard", its all the same piece of maple...

im gonna do a thorough clean up, try to get a new pickguard made for it, shield it, and redo the whole wiring, but im gonna leave the body as it is, maybe even sand some finish, i dunno.... im just too happy with this thing... back to playin

WOW! that's something really cool!
yeah, those Roadstars have pretty unbelievable sound. i've got an '85 RS530 and it's the one that sounds the best of all my Ibanezes, along with my '86 PL1770 when played in preset-system mode.

congrats man! and yeah, post some pics!

Ill try and borrow a camera during the weekend... another thing that struck me as weird is the pickups, looking at catalog pics they looked like normal single coils, but up close theyre huge!!
