Pre-owned in fair condition, the guitar has been well used and has one repair to the top (more details to follow). Before we go any further, if you are looking for a pristine, cosmetically shiny, new example, please stop reading because this is not the guitar for you. If on the other hand, you want a great playing 7-string, with a pro set up and that's already been played in, read on. This might be just the ticket.
Cosmetically, there are scratches and small dents around the edge of the body, some wear to the finish on the back, showing up as a light coloured line where the body is contoured. There are also scratches to both the front and back of the body.
The repair previously mentioned, has been carried out to the body around the volume control. It appears the volume control sustained an impact of some description, causing a split to the top of the body (visible in the pictures). This has been repaired and is no longer an issue, apart from of course, the way it looks. Around the area is some rubbing down/sanding to the finish, leaving lighter coloured marks.
And finally, for the sake of full disclosure, there are areas of the finish which are becoming shiny through use. This should be a "flat" finish throughout, but lots of use has buffed up that flat finish.
To sum up, it's a great player, with a low action, a big sound and there's no doubt, it could compete with members of the Rolling Stones for its "Rock n Roll" looks.
The Ibanez brand has a huge following. Some of the worlds greatest rock guitarists will use nothing but Ibanez.
