1988 Ibanez AS-200
Influenced and loved by John Scofield
This guitar plays and sounds versatile. Tonality can be played across multiple level by the unique feature of Tri-sound switch (serial / parallel / reverse coil), in combination to the 3 way bridge/neck pickup selector. If you want to play as close as John's sound, you may consider his favorite way of stringing, D'Addario strings custom set: .013, .016, .022, .032, .042, .052.
Serial# H803197 indicates it was manufactured by Terada Gakki(Gakki meaning musical instruments), a Nagoya-based prominent manufacturer with track records of successful business for 100 years.
This guitar stayed in excellent condition for over a quarter century. Minor wear on the bottom left front body and buckle wear on rear body (photo below) are not noticeable unless carefully looked at. Hardshell case comes along of course.
