Maybe some of you already know from the ICW forum, but this news is so awsome and so unbelievable, that I have to tell it here.
Last March I bought a 1978 Ibanez Professional 2680 Bob Weir Model from a german eBay seller for a IMHO good price.
I did some rework on it like replacing one PU with the original Super 80 Flying Fingers,
original Sure Grip controls etc. and NOS Gibraltar bridge (but still have the original)
You surely know the 1978 Ibanez catalog:Source: http://www.ibanez.co.jp/anniversary/28/16.jpg
And this is mine how it looks now:
Now, today someone at ICW (thank you Greg
) had a closer look at the grains of both pics, another made a comparision pic (thank you Chuck
And obviously both pics show one and the same guitar, since this compliance and concistence of the texture is stunning
Now I try to get some more information, how that axe made its way thru the last 32 years, to Germany an finally to me...
