NGD - 1981 Ibanez

Post by Jay »

Bought this a while ago but needed a bit of work. Also dispatched some elbow grease to make it shine again.

There aren't too many of these in NZ so I wonder if this is ex Kiwiaxe? I think he used to own one some 8 years ago or so.

Looks fantastic for a 41 year old and plays and sounds as good you would expect from this top of the line model.

Hot! My Ibanez LR-10 is also an '81, I believe. Should introduce them one day.

I was going to put a photo up from the back of the pickup...

But they are Super58 pickups.

I think Super58 from that era is highly desirable. Would love to hear it, but you're a tad too far...

There aren't too many of these in NZ so I wonder if this is ex Kiwiaxe? I think he used to own one some 8 years ago or so.

I'm so looking forward to the old Ibanez and the young Eastman meeting for the first time. I have no idea what to expect.

Which is the definition of fun. :D
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

That is a great idea. Even better if Robdamac can join in with his Lee Routenier

Wow that's a stunner. Dibs if you ever want to part with it. I've wanted a schofeild artists series Ibanez for ever.
What model is it ? AS2000?

Sure, one must part with everything in life at some time :wink:

It is an AS200 with Super58 pickups. Prior to 1981 they came with Super70 pickups.
