JS2KPLT #95 - Near Dead Mint, it's about 20 fine fingernail scratches around the lower corner of the bridge mounting ring from flawless. The guitar needed to have the fingerprints wiped off before I shot the pictures because I can see some in the pics, but that's all they are. Absolutely flawless otherwise. With cert and tools, in near perfect HUSA Y2K case with a white paint scuff on the back top edge.** $4750 AS IS or $5050 Pro Setup**
JSBDG - Brand New - My last one. No excuses, Best grade. I saved for myself but ended up with another I liked just a little better. If nobody buys it I'll just keep them both! I'll link the pictures as soon as I figure out which number file it is [I forgot!] or as soon as somebody asks me to [you know how often I update this page!]** $6000**
JSBDG - Near Mint, this guitar would be Dead Mint save for some light fingernail scratching below the pickups, but there is a small dink on the edge of the neck pocket on the treble side of the neck. There is wear to the tip of the switch but most of these were like this when new from rubbing on the top of the case. No odd clearcoat cracking anomalies [I had 3], no touch ups to the black under the clear [I had 2]. Nicely double signed by Joe on the back of the body and the back of the headstock. In original flight case that has a few scuffs and a crack on the top and a deep scratch on the back panel, with all correct case candy. Prepped any way you want it.** $4450**
JS1200CA – SECOND STOCK – Here’s a good one. What came first, the chicken or the egg? I’m betting the egg. The is a mutt, a 2014 package [neck, case, tools, etc] married to an Edge Pro body, marked “body/trem, old spec”. I’d bet they needed a body for the neck and had a body still in tech needing a neck, shotgun wedding at high noon. The neck is sweet perfect quarter sawn with nice dark rosewood, but is a blem on its own with clearcoat cracking in the truss rout where it looks like a tech jammed a truss wrench in too hard and cracked the clear. otherwise, the guitar is a flawless mutt of old and new. S stamped on the back of the head. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty. ** Bronze at $1350, Silver at $1450**
JS1200CA - Second Stock - This 1200 is the old NAMM Show guitar, and I mean old, a 2009 that was used till 2012, and they haven't shown one since. So it has 3 shows of play on it. nothing that wouldn't polish out perfect if desired, but the typical swirls under the pickups. There is a tiny dink on the edge of the jack rout, like 1/2mm tiny. Stamped on the back of the head of course. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $1500 Bronze or $1675 Silver** GONE** THANKS KEVIN** 7/10/14
JS24P - Second Stock - This is the 2014 NAMM Show guitar with the some faint fingernail scratches under the pickups and light swirls upper back. There is a scratch on the back bottom edge that will catch a fingernail. Might wetsand out, but why? Stamped on the back of the head of course. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $900 Bronze Package or $1000 for Silver** GONE** THANKS JAY** 7/10/14
JS2000CG - Exc++, It has some typical fingernail scratching under the pickups you cannot see on this color, the pick scratching on the mounting rings you can. There are a few very small marks on the bottom side, a couple more on the back, the worst being a very small ding over the control cover. There are also some line impressions on the back of the neck, and a shallow bruise on the skunk stripe around the 4th. No fretwear but has a 3/8" neck joint crack bass side. In generic something case.** $950 AS IS or $1200 Pro Setup and cleaned** GONE** THANKS BRANDON** 10/14/14
JS1's - before I'm asked *again* "What's a JS1?", a 1 is the original top line JS. It has the same specs as the JS2 (Chrome), JS3 (Donnie), JS4 (Rainbow), and JS5 (Rainforest) except for the finish. The 90' and 91's are original Edge equipped just like Joes, 92' and 93's are Lo Pro equipped. When the JS100 was introduced they changed the JS1 model # to JS1000 so that the best model didn't have a lower model # than the cheaper Korean version. All pre 98' JS1's and 1000's do not have the digitized multi radiusing to the back of the neck that copied Joe's worn neck and was introduced in 98'. All JS1's have chrome hardware unlike the cosmo found on the 1000's.

JEMEVO - Near Mint - If you want to give a technical grading to a relic, it's flawless in it's relic-ness except it was played by a scratcher who put long pick scratches on the pickguard below the pickups, and soiled the tape on the edge of the neck pickup. Otherwise it would be flawless. All case candy present and mint.** $6000** I have one last untouched new EVO, on the NEW page.
JEM10th #32 - Very close to Mint early number 10th with it's correct perfect and rare early misspelled plaque case. It has had just a little play, just enough to start to thin the chrome on the single coil from the bottom pole piece to the bottom edge, with wear through just off the bottom edge. There is also a touch of wear off the bottom edge of the neck pickup inner coil, well represented with many pictures. Other than that some light scattered wiping scratches, mostly around the arm contour would be the only post factory issues. It has what is apparently a natural issue in that the paint around the jack insert is cracking on the pin side, appears to be cause by the insert slightly moving away from the edge but I'll be the first to just admit, I've really got no idea what did it, except that it is not "damage" cause by anything other than just sitting in the case. It is what it is. Includes the original GC hang tags but the tool pack and cards are not present, other than the crisp cert still in it's white envelope. Somehow I forgot I shot pics long ago when I first got it so I have 2 folders, the first with my older cameras here.** $5250** or **AS IS at $5000**
JEM777LNG #430 - Exc+++ home market LNG package. The guitar is super clean from the front with a light scratch running thru the barely polished area between lions claw and edge [Many LNG's have areas where the clear wasn't wetsanded and just polished so it has a micro-texture instead of the long wetsanding haze that's never fully polished off and you can only see in glare angles] There's another 2" line scuff [scratch with no penetration] in the flat off the tone knob. Typical play wear on a pickguard of a guitar that was played for a couple years, or many very sparingly. There is a blem removal on the fretboard at the 12th fret which was left unfinished and has taken on a little color, treble side, almost fret to fret. I always thought this was done by the distributor until I inspected this one which I think is a good clue they were done during factory inspection. You can just barely see trails of what they removed. There is a 4mm chip off the back bottom edge in the waist, and a ding off the edge of the belly cut that's a line ding about 1cm x 3mm at its widest. There are a few 1cm+ stress finish cracks off the trem cover, and one on the back bottom edge. The neck is super clean, head perfect, tuners showing a little edge wear. The neck plate surface is destroyed. I believe this sat in this gig bag for 25 years and something during the contact with the inside of the bag just ate it alive. It's very strange and have never seen before. It's not from hands. The tops of most of the saddles showing strange finish removal scattered that's possible from the limited play, but odd in combination with what happened to the plate. The handrest is present but I don't think was ever factory installed as there is no evidence the pads were ever installed. There are no Handrest mount screws, and it has a little odd finish removal in spots. It's in its correct Japan market gig bag, the leather tie down straps broken and missing, in the pocket the warranty card listing serial and edition number, and case stickers of the serial, and edition numbers. The original strap pins are with it as a pink straplock was installed in period of use, very clean. The switch tip customized and changed to green, i can put an original pink on, buyers choice, but I think it looks cool. Very good neck profile, no scarf shrinkage, very little, very even fretwear, just enough to know it was played. A super clear example that was well cared for and played little, usually the bruises attributed to the 25 years of living in the bag.** $4500 Basic Setup [which it is as I spent a couple hours on it when it came in before pics as it had sat without strings probably the whole 25 years, and the frets were a might corroded and I didn't want to take pics of it that raw!] or $4750 Pro Setup, fret leveled, radius matched, etc** GONE** THANKS ADAM** 10/17/14
JEM77FP2 - NEW, untouched. It has what I consider a blem on the edge of the truss rout where there's a jagged edge and a protrusion [that could be shaved back], HUSA would not consider this a blem and would not let me return it. So it's being listed here. Untouched, with warranty, not a second by "standard", but I still consider it a blem.** Standard setup, $2600, Silver Package at $2850** GONE** THANKS MARK** 8/26/14
JEM77FP15TH - Near Dead Mint probable last batch being mid 2004 production to satisfy the last 15th orders. The plastic is still on the guard. though it was played a touch and has some pick evidence on the protective plastic but the guard will be flawless underneath. There are several scratches on the back over and left of the trem cover, and on the upper left corner of the trem cover from something, probable buckle. They would wetsand out and polish perfect, but homey don't play that game. Hardware and plate flawless, frets getting dark from case atmospherics darkening the nickel. Chesbro guitar, all tools, cards, manual, in M100 case which is probably how Chesbro cased it. Chesbro also never included the extra signed backplate, only HUSA did. ** AS IS [frets cleaned, maintained, and adjusted if you wish] $2650** or Silver Level at $2900** TGONE** THANKS DANIEL** 9/2/14
JEM7V7WH - Second Stock - 2014 NAMM Show guitar - Near Dead Mint - The finest light scratches around the neck screws on the back, there is plenty of pick scratching to the plastic over the pickguard, but the guard will be perfect underneath. The S stamped so light on the back of the head it's almost not there.** $2450 Bronze Level or $2650 Silver**
JEM7VWH - Exc+++ 2010 with very little play. It has been converted over to cosmo hardware ala EVO, everything done but the screws. There is a small chip on the inside front edge of the lower horn, a small bruise in the back of the neck behind the 15th, and a bruise on the back of the headstock that looks worse in the pictures. There is some very light scratching on the back probably from being in the box against the cardboard. Easy polish. There is no fretwear, the hardware is all still new, the pickguard nearly flawless. There is no case but it's in it's original shipping box with factory partitions for shipping. The truss cover is missing.** $$1700 adjusted and maintained** or $1900 Silver level** GONE** THANKS KEVIN** 7/30/14
JEM7VWH - STEVO - A very different take on EVO, the owner had Steve label the guitar STEVO in typical spot at an EVO packlage meet and greet. He then covered it with a clear platic to protect it, which I had planned to remove, but it didn't want to budge and I didn't want to force it. It was also oddly signed on the back of the head at the same time. The guitar is EXC+++, a very early 2011 with fingernail scratching on the guard of a played guitar, lots of button trails on the back over the trem cover, and a small back top edge bruise. There is lightening to the gold on the top points of the lower saddles of the trem, the rest of the guitar is flawless. No fretwear. Neck pickup has been changed to a Gravity Storm but the original is in the case well. Case changed out to UV1000 from the molded TJC. White Cliplock strap installed with the original pins with the tools, all paperwork, tools, and manual in the well.** $1750 adjusted and maintained** or $1950 Silver level**
JEM7VWHL – SECOND STOCK – LEFTY - I remember this guitar from the last batch of L’s I went thru, finally good guitars that intonated and sounded right. I did not take this guitar because it has a light streak in the edge of the rosewood, but mostly because the string retainer was crooked. For as much as I pay for these guitars I wasn’t willing to buy it, and, I was buying 9 other VWHL’s from that batch. Evidently nobody bought it in the last year and they’re just clearing it out of inventory. The guitar is perfect [except as noted above] but stamped S on the back of the headstock. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty. **Bronze at $2250, Solver at $2350**
JEM77VBK - Mint -, Some light swirl scratching the the mirror pickguard, and a very very light scattered scratches around the body, nothing that wouldn't hand polish if desired. The neck and headstock are perfect, no fretwear, a very nice VBK with very little playtime. In original TJC case but only includes the bar, no tools or paperwork. ** $1875 Bronze** or $2025 Silver level** GONE** THANKS LAWRENCE** 12/31/14
JEM777SK – Exc+++ 87' with the later less rounded body edges, black trem block, and incorrect pad nut as would be expected of a late 87'. The pickguard pulled shows no fading to the pink but the exposed clear showing light yellowing as would be expected. There is a small 4mm chip on the back bottom side near the jack with a short finish crack near it, and a ¼” finish crack on the top side near the grip. The front and back are extremely clear showing only light swirl scratching from use. There is a ½” NJFC on the bass side of the neck pocket. The neck is extremely clean on the back but showing some spotty clear wear thru and flaking is some areas, but very little fretwear. The headstock super clear with a thin edge ding just past the JEM logo that is tough to see. The neck pickup shows slightly different color so I pulled the guard, and though everything seems to be original and unfiddled with I cannot swear it is, but the pickups are correct and unmarked with no model designation stamps. The bridge is showing small pimpling on the bass side baseplate and the tops of the low 3 saddles with cosmo wear to their tops. The strap pins were changed years ago and the trem cover is still missing, the guitar has basically been untouched since I sold it in 2001 except there was a Tremsetter installed when sold and it has been reconverted to regular claw, without having the ground wire soldered which I’ll have to do. It was signed in 99’ by Steve in Gold on the back of the body. The anchors are clearly a little loose and will have to be fixed if this guitar is going to be a player. It’s been cased in a modern UV1000 that has had the combination forgotten at one time and broken into so is a little fiddly now but works, combination set to 477. It has its original tools and paperwork including complete warranty card. Sold for $900 in 2001, boy have things changed.** $2750 AS IS, or $2975 fully sorted, fret leveled, anchors fixed and ready for play** GONE** THANKS ADAM** 10/17/14**

UV77RE – Near Dead Mint with sweet dark brooding swirl, it has about an hours play worth of fingernail scratches on the guard, mostly below the bridge pickup. It does have a short neck joint crack bass side, otherwise it’s a brand new guitar. The case has some small bruises, scratches, and scuff marks to the back side rails. With cert, no shipping boxes.** $7500 any way you want it** GONE** THANKS BRETT** 11/18/13
UV70P - Second Stock - This is the 2014 NAMM Show guitar with the some scattered fingernail scratches on the pickguard, otherwise virtually dead mint. Stamped on the back of the head of course. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $975 Bronze Package or $1075 for Silver** GONE** THANKS JUSTIN** 9/25/14

PGM600 - Another of the very rare home market only PG’s I see less 600’s come up for sale than I do the even more expensive 700’s. This one is in Exc. Condition with a tiny <1mm ding about 1” from the butt edge, a line scuff that left a shallow impression that crosses right on top of a 3mm finish crack near the cutaway edge ½” below the neck pickup, and about ½” length of binding separation in that cutaway that looks like it’s been there since new. Also there is some fingernail scratching below the pickup and overall wiping spider webs. Like every 600 I’ve seen the back of the rear point has been chipped with another ½” away at the binding, and the back edge/end of the lower horn has a bruise that left a 4mm finish crack. There is a puncture ding on the back near the butt point and another depression near the butt edge, with very light scratching in an arc 3” from the neck strap pin, probably from a strap clip, and an L shape scratch on the back edge of the cutaway. There’s a 3mm scuff/bruise near the low E tuner on the front of the head, the back corner of the drop is chipped, as well as the back side of the tip with a suff next to it. No problems with the paint on the back of the neck but there are a couple small finish cracks near the body mate. On the rosewood board is a small bruise that should steam and sand out before the first fret, and mild-medium fretwear mostly on the G string. Large added signature with graphic on the back has been covered with clear mylar as has the factory signed control cover. There is some light pixelization to the front from UV exposure [probably from display as the back is clear] but the orange seems unaffected. I’ve never seen one of these in anything other that the factory Ibanez gig bag.** $2625** or **AS IS at $2375**

AT100CLSB - Second Stock - 2014 NAMM Show guitar - The finest light scratches from being picked up a few times, about 10 short fingernail scratches on the pickguard, but it did bump something on the back, a small shallow bruise below/between the cover and the neck screws. S Stamped on the back of the head. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $1800 Bronze Level or $2000 Silver**
AT10P - Second Stock - 2014 NAMM Show guitar - The finest light scratches from being picked up a few times, mostly in the belly cut on the back, about 10 scratches on the guard, the plastic was removed from the guard, S Stamped on the back of the head. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty. EDIT** I sold the guitar, did a Gold setup on it shaving the fret ends back and reforming the ball ends, with fret level and removing all the clear off the frets, and lapsed focus for a split second putting the neck on and the driver slipped off the screw head and dinged the edge of the neck screw hole. I did a touch up so it's barely noticeable, forgetting the stain would creep under the clear [I'll have to remember next time! so there is a little dark spot running away from the touch up, again, on the back at a neck screw hole and barely noticeable, considering it's a Second anyway.** $950 Gold Level already finished just needing choice of gauge and final tweak to ship**
AT10P - Second Stock - The tip of the back of the lower horn has a small buff thru spot, otherwise the guitar is flawless, except for the S Stamped on the back of the head. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $800 Bronze Level or $975 Silver**GONE** THANKS TESH** 7/30/14

Normally I wouldn't handle standard Indo builds but these Seconds were in that large batch I took last year and just never got around to listing.
M80M - 12141 – Second Stock - The 2015 NAMM Show guitar, showing some slight handling marks, it looks like they tried using a Magic Eraser on it to blend them out which left very very fine surface scratches [I assume this, because that’s what you normally use on this type finish, so I tried to use one, and created more of the same scratching]. Proud fret ends from neck shrinkage will be shaved back. Otherwise no issues. Marked S on the back of the head. In its correct soft case. **$900 AS IS, $1000 BRONZE
M80M - 05899 – Second Stock - This guitar shows what looks like several manufacturing blems, as well as some scratching that I’d think was post manufacture. There bruising around the lower side of the bridge rout where it looks like they dropped the bridge while installing. The wood between the first 2 frets also looks to have been worked to remove tool marks after the whole board was polished [that’s how they polish the frets], steel wool the whole board and oil it and it would all match. There is scratching on the back also, from who knows what. Proud fret ends from neck shrinkage will be shaved back. Stamped S on the back of the head. In its correct soft case. **$600 AS IS, $700 BRONZE

GB10BS - Second Stock - This probably came off Demo use, was a show guitar, or possibly a return by a dealer going out of business. It's absolutely perfect except for a badly stamped S on the back of the headstock. It has been played but all signs of play are on the protective covering on the pickguard and bridge pickup. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $2300 AS IS** $2400 BRONZE** $2500 SILVER**

SHRG1Z - Near Dead Mint - There are no signs this guitar was ever played. It does have a small 3mm back top edge bump, but I had these are them when they were brand new so there's no way to say if it was there new or bumped but the owner. Everything else is just age. The VS hardware gets a little dull and crusty looking from sitting in the case [the formaldehydes and other evaporatives attack this and other hardware finishes], and there are a few shrinkage lines along the edge as well as another across the neck screws. This is a finish that cannot "move" like a typical finish so when the mahogany shrank a hair the finish buckled in fine lines, mostly right on the edge. With cert and all paperwork, in clean Giger case with a little bunching spot on the top and a couple scuffs on the back.** $3950 AS IS** or $4250 prepped as a player** GONE** THANKS SCOTLAND** 9/5/14

2670RE - OK, it's not a JC, but I don't have any other place to put it and it's a Sugi build so a bit better than a JC anyway! This is a Brand New 2670, and one fabulous instrument if you have any use for a vintage 6/12 doubleneck. The only problem with the whole package is the end of the case is crushed. Not just broken, it's pretty much "hit by a fork lift" crushed. A bit on the heavy side but you should expect that if you're going to strap on 2 guitars!** $4500 AS IS or $4900 pro setup [it is a 18 string doubleneck!!]**
RG8540ZDBX - Second Stock. Japan only model brought over for store specials, unsold and had to go so were Deemed Seconds. Otherwise they are perfect new guitars they would have sold as new a month ago. This one has had a distributor fret level, as they always polish the frets on the big wheel, without masking off the fretboard. The rosewood does polish also and has a mild sheen. They also didn't re-do the top round of the ball end after the level. Stamped S on the back of the head. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** Bronze Package at $1850** GONE** THANKS SCOTT** 7/3/14
RG8540ZDBX - Second Stock. Japan only model brought over for store specials, unsold and had to go so were Deemed Seconds. This guitar is perfect, with sweet top and sweeter headstock. S stamped on back of head. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** Bronze package at $2100** On HOLD for Sidney** 10/14/14
RG8571BX - Second Stock. Japan only model brought over for store specials. This guitar actually is a Second, The center maple strip in the neck was cracked at the volute, before they built the neck with it. It looks like it was sealed before finishing, but the sealer may have been the seal. At any rate there's no way this should have made it past that part of the line. It will need a surface sanding to make it disappear to the hand. It is guaranteed stable and not affecting now, or in the future, there is no sign of cracking to the front on the headstock and i believe it is a surface stress crack only. But it is there. Neck also has slight s shape nec , just like the guitar above, and will be leveled in the comprehensive setup package. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $1650** GONE** THANKS MIKE** 7/2/14
RG8571BX - Second Stock. Japan only model brought over for store specials. This guitar actually is a Second, it has a series or 3 light scratches in the back center of the neck from the 3rd to the 9th. They're fine but can be felt. I'll fill with poly and sand everything out so it feels right, but the sheen of the worked area will reveal some work was done there. Otherwise the guitar is flawless, except for the stamped S that caused a large fog spot on the back of the head. Guitar does have slight s shape neck and will be leveled in the comprehensive setup package. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $2100**
RG8470FBX - Exc --, the guitar is showing almost no play wear but does have some small bruises and a LOT of cosmo wear off the trem and volume knob. There's a small ding about 1/2" over the bass trem stud, a ting ding just off the bottom edge, and a 3-4mm ding on the bottom edge right on the leg cut. There are about 5-6 small back edge chips around the perimeter, some late in the pictures as I got thrown off track in the middle of taking them. There is some scratching between the trem cover and neck screws, and a chip to the tip of the headstock. No fretwear, virtually no pick scratching. Currently setup with a Tremol-no which I can reverse to stock if you choose. With cert and strap locks in correct J Custom TJC case.**$1700 AS IS or $1950 Pro prepped**
RG8470FBX - Exc minus, There is virtually no play wear except the cosmo wear of the lower bass saddles and the volume knobs but there are several small dings on the front. One tiny one above the single coil, a couple more tiny between knob and trem, a small one off the bottom edge, but the worst is a 1" long deep scratch that comes off the bottom edge. There are 3 of 4 small back edge chips and dings and in the belly cut there are 3 deeper dinks with the worst being about 3x10mm. There's a couple tiny edge dings near the end of the headstock, no fretwear. No cert, no tools, no strap locks, just the bar and correct J Custom TJC case.** $1725 AS IS or $1975 Pro prepped**
HRG4BX - Mint minus on this very rare quilt top 7 string, the only quilt 7 Ibanez has ever made, this was a studio use guitar only and saw very little service. There are some light scattered fingernail scratches under the pickups, a few light shirt button type scratches on the back, there is an L scratch on the aluminum trem cover, otherwise the paint is flawless. No bumps, finish cracks, dings, etc. The bass side on the trem baseplate has got some strange light spots in the cosmo and 3 wiping scratches, and the nut, pads, and string retainers is almost devoid of cosmo which is very common for these nuts [for whatever reason] In it's original case with cert, paperwork, strap locks, etc.** $3350 AS IS or $3600 Pro Setup**
JCRG20127BLZ - Mint minus - Super dark rosewood board with sweet flame, this JC was played enough to put a 2" area of light fingernail scratches below the pickups, but that's it. The rest of the guitar is flawless. The only purple dye transfer from the case lining is at the very peak of the volute in a narrow band around part of it. In it's perfect JCRG case with all case candy, tools, paperwork, cert, etc.** $2350 Bronze** or $2500 Silver level** GONE** THANKS BRANDAN** 10/20/14

Seconds - Sometimes a Second classification has nothing to do with quality.I just purchased a large batch of 2014 NAMM Show guitars that are seconds because they were on display for 4 days and available to pickup and play, which many of them were and will show signs of it, exactly like all guitars at the local store. They are several other reasons they will Second guitars, some are imported for special promo events that went unsold, were offered to all dealers, and went unsold. To clear the inventory they have to technically be classified as seconds to justify the discount they have to give to move them. Seconds are also Demo service guitars they need to move. Some of the batch below are Seconds but thankfully I was due there for an errand when they sold them so I picked them up before they had a chance to stamp them S. Sometimes they will Second brand new guitars that just never sold on closeout to move them out. All Second Stock guitars comes with Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty. They're all superb quality.
AR2619CS - Second Stock - Sample. I thought it was going to be the show guitar, but I didn't think it was, grain just not perfect. But on closer examination the same little patch of scratches on the neck pickup is present on the 2014 NAMM show guitar confirming this is that guitar. The slight differences in grain pattern caused by the angle of the light showing the flip side of the grain The guitar is near perfect, and the only reason it's a Second is because they take the plastic off the pickups to show them, and it was probably picked up and twinked on by a few reps. It does have about 5 light fingernail scratches, and a little squiggle scratchy patch on the top of the neck humbucker. The bass side of the bridge dulled from fingerprints that had sat on it too long. Under inspection this guitar is 9.95, now 9.5 because it has a very light S stamped in the back of the head. In the box it flew to Hoshino in, sporting JAL stickers, and marked SAMPLE. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Premium Warranty.
ASF180AV -Second Stock, Japan Market guitar. Thankfully I was due there for an errand when they sold them so I picked them up before they had a chance to stamp it S. I will cover full 1 year warranty with this guitar. I'm so glad they still make guitars like these in Japan. Such quality, basically an AS200, I'm not sure what isn't about it. 1 3/4" think hollow with Super 58's and bound ebony board with block trapezoids, Antique Violin finish. What a wonderful instrument. Flawless except for a patch of pick scratching on the plastic covering the guard. Once removed it would be Dead Mint. In correct case. All Second Stock guitars comes with Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.**List Price $3066** Setup at $1700 or Silver at $1900**

AF180BS - Second Stock - Dead Mint, except stamped with a very light S on the back of the head. These were Japan market guitars they brought in to do big store events for certain dealers, with non available models at the event to entice sales. This guitar is untouched and absolutely brand new, but a Second. It was a Second only because when unsold, even to the dealers it was offered to, it still had to go. At the discounted Second price it's a superb instrument and I'm happy to have it in inventory. All Second Stock guitars comes with Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** Bronze Level at $1450** Silver at $1550** On HOLD for Don**10/30/14

RG655FSO - Second Stock, Out of the same batch that were all NAMM guitars, I thought this would be, but it isn't, and after minute inspection, I think they flat out grabbed the wrong guitar, all I can find is a couple super light scratches from the truss cover sliding off, but I get these on new guitars all the time so it's not the reason it's a Second. I give. All Second Stock guitars comes with Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** Bronze Level $850** Silver at $1000** GONE** THANKS LOGAN** 8/12/14

RG852GK - Second Stock - 2014 NAMM Show guitar, show pictures below. - First batch, rushed to LA for the show, box with Japan Air stickers. The only reason these are Seconds is because they get some play time at the show, this one having some super light [probable] button scratches on the back around the neck screws. Perfect in every other way, S stamped on the back of the head. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $950 Bronze Package or $1100 Silver**
RG852WH - Second Stock - 2014 NAMM Show guitar, show pictures below. - First batch, rushed to LA for the show, box with Japan Air stickers.

RG852LWHAB - Second Stock - 2014 NAMM Show guitar, show pictures below. - First batch, rushed to LA for the show, so late in fact they had to FedEx it!

RGA427ZISH- MINT minus - This is virtually new with some slight swirls under the pickups, but the treble side end of the bridge pickup cover has been worn smooth and has a polished look [I'm going to see if the cover is available]. Otherwise there is a small 3mm cloudy spot in the clear on the back top edge with no signs of any damage, may just be a clear anomaly, and a short scuff on the back edge that should just poish away. The tops of the fine tuners oddly developed a little rust so I'll replace them. No fretwear, very very little play time. In it's TJC case that has some paint scuffs on the edges.** $1750 AS IS [except as noted above] or $2000 Pro prepped**
RGD2127ZISH - Second Stock - This is a true Second with 2 small chips on the bottom side edge on the lower horn, and a 1mm chip at the top edge of the jack rout. If you know this paint [or if you don't] you can see how thin the coat is from the pics, it's an easy guitar to "relic". I'll touch these up to tollerable, if desired. Stamped S on the back of the head of course. No factory box, cased only. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty.** $975 Bronze Package or $1075 for Silver** GONE** THANKS TIM** 1/8/15
S5470TKS – SECOND STOCK – Why? I can find absolutely nothing wrong with this guitar except they stamped it with the S on the back of the headstock. Everything is absolutely perfect. Maybe it got misplaced in the warehouse or came out of tech late after getting something fixed and is only a second because it’s over a year discontinued. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty. ** Bronze at $1050, Silver at $1150**

S5527TKS - Second Stock - 2014 NAMM Show guitar - It looks to have been played once by somebody that curled their finder under the high E because there's a group of fingernail scratches there, and some super light handling scratches on the back near the neck screws. Box covered with Fedex sticks from the trip to the show. Stamped with the S on the back of the head.

New Jersey residents must add 7% Sales Tax unless guitar is shipped out of state, no exceptions!
All pricing on this page has finally been converted to Credit Card pricing to comply with regulations governing merchant accounts. All sales that predate 6/15/08 were listed as cash prices and card fees were added to the total if the sale was a charge.
Circumstances determine that some guitars are listed and sold AS IS, either because I was screwed when buying and condition did not equal price paid, or typically some version there of. Guitars that are AS IS are not just packed and shipped blind. Even AS IS guitars are tested to make sure there are no problems such as loose stud inserts that are so common to basswood guitars, or electric problems, etc. I don't sell just guitars blind. There may be some fret choking somewhere that could be fixed by action or a level still present, these aren't play tested like a fully sorted guitar, but you should at least have some comfort in knowing it has been checked for most typical problems and either had them addressed or reported so you have the option of refusal before it goes any further.
Check out the Used Guitar Primer section for plenty of tips to help you with your own guitars. This also shows part of what the guitars on this page go through before they are shipped to you. It's 9 pages of longwinded dribble, half cleaning tips and the rest setup tips, and it was alot of work, but in actuality it's quite out of date for the amount of work each guitar would receive today. Basically you'll be getting a full Pro Setup as any of the new guitars I sell would get, but also fully debugged as these are older guitars and I always expect to run into issues, on top of the fact that they're dirty and need a thorough cleaning. The link to the New Guitar Setup page can be found here.
The index folders contain pics from 3 different cameras [usually]. Currently I'm using my new Cannon almost exclusively as it does large and close ups extremely well. These will have an IMG image tage. You will find a lot of the image folders predate the Cannon. Those that start MVC are from my Mavica and are close ups. Those that start with P are from my Olympus. Typically you'd want to look at these first as they'll show the whole guitar where the Mavica shots will just be chip/ding/scratch close ups. Since M comes before P these will unfortunately be the first files listed on the pages.
Many of you have noticed this page went near 3 months without an update [again]. I have just been too busy. Always consider when ordering that I am usually in a 2 week backlog so unless you are ordering a guitar AS IS there will be considerable delays processing your order.
Some of you will notice alot of the prices on this page have gone up. With the prices being paid on ebay lately and the continuing shrinking dollar the *Global* market prices have definitely risen. Last PG10th that sold in Japan was over $3400. Last Jem10 on ebay with chrome wear on the pickups sold for $3500 with another selling in Ireland at $4750! A good UVMC on ebay sold for $3600!! A sweet GMC brought $3900! [and yes, these are all true sales where the money changed hands]. I'm just keeping in line with the market fluctuations and the amount of work that goes into the preparation of each guitar before it ships. [I just looked at this, damn is this way out of date! LOL]
I am constantly asked "Please send me an email when you get a JEM77XYZ in and I will buy it!". I do not do notices of incoming inventory. I get literally 100 requests like this a week and in an attempt to retain whatever sanity I have left I will not even attempt to keep track of your requests. You will have to check the Used page just like everybody else does, and bottom line, it's fair to all.
Haggling - it's only human nature to
want to negotiate and feel like you've gotten a better price. Until now I have
firmly resisted this, but, as times change, so must I. If you'd like to haggle
there will be a $250 Haggling Fee assessed, and a maximum allowable discount set
"What's your best price on that?" - My standard response - "You're looking at it." Prices shown usually represent the cost of the time I put into working on a a guitar plus a small $50-$100 profit. Some of them actually reflect a decent profit margin! Some also reflect a LOSS. I get screwed buying online more than you do, I buy more! What *All* prices represent is *Bottom Line*, and are a *Fair* price for each guitar. If you don't like the pricing please shop elsewhere. The only discounts are if the guitar is bought AS IS and I don't have to work on it, although the deduction will vary per guitar and may not be as much as you might think or want.
I am constantly asked to put guitars on hold, HOLD means that cash is on the way in all but very rare circumstances. If you are waiting for a payment or bonus etc. guitars can be put on short term hold with a 10% deposit down. Short term is 2 weeks maximum. I do make exceptions on occasion for valid reasons, but in any deal for longer than 2 weeks and your 10% deposit becomes non-refundable! [Maximum penalty $100] I'm not an ogre, but this is a business! If there's a possibility that you cannot complete the terms of a deal then do not enter into it! I will in no way mark guitars on HOLD for people to "contemplate" whether they want it [or something else they're watching on ebay]. For every guitar on this page there are 2 people sitting on the fence, and a buyer that can come in 2 emails and "buy" it. This does not mean I don't want you to be very sure about a purchase and not take your time to decide, it does mean I won't "hold" it for you while you "think" about it. 2 or 3 players could be talking to me about the same guitar at the same time and bottom line is, first buyer to close the deal gets it. It's fair to everyone. ;o}
I just did a MAJOR cleanout of this page and put ALL sold guitars on the Used Sold page. I will probably keep this page trimmed to current offerings only from now on. It was obviously creating confusion as I would get emails from people requesting guitars that were marked GONE.
