1980 Ibanez AR-400
This guitar is equipped with Super 80 flying finger tri-sound pickups. EQ two tone system. Like Weir's old guitar but no bass knob or preamp boost. So it has master volume, passive master tone, mid counter and treble equalization. Toggles are single-hum-tri sound.
I've been a Modulus guy pretty much since I started playing guitar. I've owned a Ibanez AR-500 but it was a early 80's model which is nothing like the older ones. When this guitar fell into my lap I was psyched but I didn't realize how happy I would be with it from the first strum. This guitar is everything I've ever wanted with my sound. It puts me right in the 76-80 Weir tone effortlessly. I love the active circuitry and the sustain is unbelievable. Something that I never had with a Blackknife. I have a new theory about Weir and why he was so good in the late 70s. That guitar is it. It really does sing. A Blackknife just cuts through the music. The best thing of all, I actually feel and sound like a better guitar player because of this ax. I LOVE IT!
