Ibanez 1975-78 Rocket Roll Sr. "Flying V" Model 2387 Custom
The "Lawsuit" Era of Japanese guitars produced a dichotomy seen rarely in the world of guitar production: on the one had, you had a number of producers making merely visual imitations of their chosen guitars, which had little to do with the actual guitar itself, and on the other, you had things like this Rocket Roll Sr: A near perfect replica of some of Gibson's most sought after guitars.
This is, for all intents and purposes, an ash bodied 1959 Flying V copy. There's some speculation about what wood it really is, in fact, most experts believe it's a wood called "Japanese Sen", but nonetheless, in construction, sound, feel, and mojo, this 70's Ibanez is an incredible interpretation of the Flying V design. The first of it's line of Gibson lifts, this guitar has a solid ash (or Japanese sen) body paired with a set-in 3-ply maple neck. The neck has 22 frets and a rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. It features a Tune-o-matic style fixed bridge, through-body string routing with a vee-shaped "Cadillac" ornament, and two Ibanez humbucking pickups mounted in black pickup rings. Other components include a black pickguard, top hat style knobs, and Smooth Tuner "Star" machine heads. The output jack is located on the inside of the lower (treble) wing.
This guitar is in great condition, with only a few spots of wear on the headstock. The hardware is faded, but is entirely functional.
Serial #L765226. Comes with the original hard shell case.
