Ibanez Artist 2700P (Musician Series Prototype) Auction:
Hello, I’m selling my reasonably rare 1977 Ibanez Artist 2700P, SN J778568, original flight case, and remote power supply. I’m the original owner, and the guitar is in completely original condition. I had to replace one of the switches the first year, but the switch was a replacement sent from Ibanez, and the proper matching switch. The gold is corroded on the bridge, from sweat; I played this guitar for over 10 years solidly.
It's got a nice 7 piece neck (maple and walnut I think) and maple cored body. I don't know what the dark wood of the body is. It has active electronics with bass, mid, and treble active tone controls. There is a switch to engage or disengage the preamp/tone controls. It is in very good condition.
There are a couple of small dings, and one place where I turned into a cymbal and chipped a piece of finish off... it didn't mark the wood at all, but a piece about the size of a pea is off and I don't have the finish expertise to fix it myself... Also the flight-case has a piece of corner-molding missing, and a corner piece. Pictures are available at:
