||1984 Ibanez AR-300|
Crafted at Golden Age of Ibanez
Check out this sweet 1984 Ibanez Artist AR300 in Antique Violin finish. Its signature design including the intense figure of the flamed maple top, mahogany body and tri-sound switches have been loved by so many vintage seekers. The fretboard inlays are mother of pearl with Abalone inserts starting on the first fret. The sculpted top, double cutaways and perfect heel make upper fret access effortless.
This model has the Tri-Sound pickup switches per pickup, which allow for full humbucking, coil splitting or parallel phase configurations. These Super 58 pickups are amazing and the definition of the sound they produce will blow out a Gibson.
She's been well maintained, still it is worth commenting the areas of less perfection. Chips are found one at the top of headstock and a few more around the body bottom. Turning the guitar aside and having a careful look at the tuners you would notice damage done on the tuner cap for 1st string. Due to this, when you tune 1st string the tuner cap also moves along. Of course the defect is limited only to cosmetics. Lastly, Please note the strap pin was moved from the rear body to the left cutaway top to balance off the weight of the guitar. The original hardshell case comes along with this stunning beauty.
