 SOLD  1980 Ibanez LR-10
Rare! Lee Ritenour LR-10
Last time I came across this guitar in the market was 11 months ago. I can proudly say I am lucky enough to grab the rare chance to have it with me now.

LR-10 is one of Ibanez's five 335 signature masterpieces, along with JP-20 (after Joe Pass), PM-100 (Pat Metheny), GB-10 (George Benson), and JSM-100 (John Scofield). In compasion to the rest of models, LR-10 is definitely more toward jazz fusion sound / playability. The LR special pickups Super 58 plays warm tone with longer sustain.

Lee Ritenour himself was a huge fan of this guitar and played it many of his lives in 1980's. It can also be heard exclusively on his album 'Rit', where he added stronger elements of pop, while keeping with his distorted sound.

Condition of this guitar is somewhere between A and A-. Tiny wear found on the headstock, body top and rear, as indicated in the photos. Binding is a bit aged. Also note F-hole cover was detached to boost howling but the original covers come along for your interest.

Original hardshell case, buckle, and trustrod adjustment tool are shipped altogether. 2 x V shaped hardware material is something I have yet to figure out about what they are for, but I will ship together anyway.
