Vintage Ibanez Blazer - High End Upgrades

1981 Ibanez Blazer

Made in Japan during the golden age of Ibanez Guitars. A very high quality guitar. This is the three single coil hardtail model. A few tasty upgrades have been done.

Jack moved to the edge of the guitar, they often break on the pickguard. It's much more comfortable this way IMO. The jack plate is a Made in Japan Allparts and the switch is Switchcraft.

The original pickguard was salvaged and patched in one area. The jack hole was deleted and a pearl inlay fills the phase switch hole.

The pickups are Abigail Ybarra "AY" signed Fender Custom Shop '69. Pots are CTS The pickups are $200 alone, and I think that is for the regular unsigned ones. The controls include a master volume, master tone and 5 way switch. The pickup covers, knobs etc are USA fender and are Fender's 'aged' color.

As you can see the guitar is in solid shape but I tried to show the worst spots as best as I could. It has plenty of marks and dings, its all part of the vintage character as far as I'm concerned and looks great. There was a chip of wood reglued behind the nut. Also, someone scratched their number in the neckplate and then tried to sand it a little with light sandpaper.

This is a great sounding vintage guitar that you can take out of the house without worrying too much.

$375 + shipping
