Ibanez AR50-BK Artist Junior 1979 | Black

$ 1000.00

Up for grabs is this 1979 Ibanez Artist AR-50 Junior in Black. The body and has a few dings, which we’ve tried our best to picture (but it’s always hard to get good shots on black finishes), but what keeps this from being in excellent condition is the buckle rash on the back. However, it sounds and plays amazing. The neck has never had a headstock break, or repair. It feels great! The Ibanez Super 70 pickups absolutely rip. These made-in-Japan rock machines were meant to compete with Gibson’s double-cut Les Paul Junior offerings, and they do so in spades. The frets are in good shape. No work needed on these frets for many moons. Ships in its original Ibanez hardcase.
