Question Help the old Band Geek

Looking to buy my son his first electric. he already has acoustic and has shown his dedication to playing. Found one of interest on E-bay but need your advice if it is the real deal. #250658754190. Looked at the Ibanez website can only find it in black so makes me skeptical. Thanks

Looks like feedback is good for the seller, but you never know with that site.
IF - you buy it's sure to need a pro setup so plan on that additional expense.
Good luck.

Destroyers did come in red at one point.

But I've never seen an Ibanez heel with 5 bolts? They may exists though. I'm also not aware of Ibanez serial numbers that start with, "W"?

It's real,made in the Cort factory i believe (w).
They were available in red and the 5th screw is the strap pin.

Go for it.

Thanks for the replies so far. E-mailed seller too, and he doesnt no much about it since he searches classifieds and garage sales for things of interest. Have no idea where Cort factory might be, but it sounds good. Would it have any value, and would it be worth it for about $150.00?

The Cort Factory is in Korea. I say go for it, it seems like a pretty good deal. However, as Jemaholic mentioned earlier, you're going to have to get it professionally set up.
