JIVA10 - Nita Strauss becomes the first woman to get her own signature model, and for good reason. After her work with the Femme Fatales, The Iron Maidens, and her latest stint with Alice Cooper, she has released her first solo disc, Controlled Chaos, which is a very good description of this woman on stage. After catching her show in Philly I have to say she is the most entertaining guitar player I have seen in decades, and she's got the chops to play in the big leagues. I always liked the guitar but my resistance to handling Indo has kept me from stocking them, but after selling a couple and now experimenting with the Axion line, it's time to stock the JIVA also.



JIVA10DSB_I181008443 - SECOND STOCK - Description tag marked Flaw under poly - and there's 2 simi circle fog spots against the biding off the jack, returned by the picy dealer that uses tape with arrows. They're both about 3/8" long by 2mm wide, between the binding and the edge of the body. There is some typical file marks around the fret ends treble side but not bad. Beautiful build save the super light S stamped on the head. All Second Stock guitars come with 1 year Ibanez Rules Platinum Warranty. **$1000 AS IS, $1100 BRONZE, $1300 SILVER**
