  •  SOLD  1981 Ibanez AR-300
    Crafted at Golden Age of Ibanez
Check out this sweet 1981 Ibanez Artist AR300 in bright sunburst 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 plays amazing and the definition of the sound they produce may blow out a Gibson.

She's been well maintained, yet it is worth commenting the areas of less perfection. Scratches and chips appear mostly around the body bottom and along the upper right cutaway on the rear side of guitar. Natural oxidation on hardware was unavoidable over more than 30 years. Lastly, one of tuner pegs had its top broken so I had replace with the most similar looking one. I will ship the original broken tuner as well for your collection. So, if the description of graceful aging are still acceptable, this iconic vintage wants to serve you as a new owner.
