Model 2635

Made in Japan

Archtop jazz guitar model

Sunburst finish. Flame maple fiugred top back and sides. 3 piece rock maple neck.
Gold hardware with velvet-tune machine heads.

This is quality and luxury.

  • Early Japanese post-lawsuit model with the modern Ibanez peg head and early version of the velvet-tune tuners
  • Made 1978
  • Flamed Maple Back and Sides
  • Florentine Cutaway
  • Antique Violin Sunburst Finish
  • 3 PLY Rock Maple Neck
  • Ebony Fingerboard with Pearl-Abalone-Pearl Inlays
  • Ibanez Super 80 "flying finger" Pickups

Otherwise perfect with the original case also in great condition. The only sign of ageing are the original gold pickup covers, especially the neck pickup, being tarnished ( lost some of it's gold plating ) due to the vapours from the original celluloid pickguard deteriorating. That part being professionally remade using non-celluloid material acetate but managing to save and re-use the original multi binding from that guard. A very nice result.

This guitar is totally amazing, totally beautiful, totally playable and collectible.

I'd have to say, awesome!
And that is not a word I would often use.
