Ibanez AM255 1983 – Violin Burst

$ 1800.00

Here’s  a 1983 Ibanez Artist AM-255 in violin burst with gold hardware, binding, inlays, and a Hard Rocker Pro tremolo with a locking bridge that I don’t use; the nuts and bolts that lock it down are included. Made in Japan’s FujiGen factory, this guitar has the two original Super 58 pickups; they are as good as they are cracked up to be. This is a semi-hollow guitar, made from mahogany, with quilted maple top and back.The neck is straight; the truss rod works; and the tuners operate smoothly. The tremolo bar is a replacement.

  • Original “bat wing” strap buttons
  • Original speed knobs for volume and tone
  • Ebony fretboard and abalone inlays for fret markers
  • Mother of pearl inlay on the headstock
  • Minimal fretwear
  • 3-position switch with standard wiring 
  • Significant beltwear on the back, hence the rating (see photos)
  • Non-original hardshell Ibanez case included.
