Ibanez USA Custom Exotic Wood RG UCEW1FM with case RARE
This is one of my favorite guitars, a 1991 UCEW1FM in natural with a bound neck and offset dots; to those of you who do not know the model number it is a USA custom Exotic Wood RG (check the catalog scans on jemsite or Rich Harris' website). Some of the guitars' features include a mahogany body with a flame maple top, DiMarzio pickups (PAF pro in the bridge and neck and a VS-1 in the middle), a 24 fret Ultra neck, and the Ibanez Edge tremolo system.
This guitar was to be the foundation for one, of two, of my custom guitars, unfortunately, there is no way I can afford to do two custom projects while I have so much credit card debt. Anyway, the guitar is in about a 9.1 out of 10 as far as condition. It has one small pencil eraser sized chip on the back, just above the trem cavity cover, the only other mark on the guitar is an extremely small impression on the face; it is one of those blemishes that you can only see by shining a light on the body and looking at the body at near parallel to the face (in other words EXTREMELY minor and only in the clearcoat).
The guitar is super clean, there is no pickscratching and no other blemishes to speak of (in fact I really do not even see wiping scratches on it, which is pretty incredible considering the guitars' age). The guitar plays and sounds great, there is a little fret wear but nothing out of the ordinary for a guitar of this age. The guitar comes with original case, which is in great cosmetic shape but one of the latches is broken, though the other two do hold fine and I am sure the other latch could be fixed very easily. The guitar also has the original USA Custom Ibanez North Hollywood Warranty Card, which is actually kind of cool and intereting. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions at all, thanks and good luck bidding.
