Ibanez Destroyer 1977 – Natural

$ 5999.00

You are looking at a 1977 Ibanez Destroyer in good condition! Guitar has its share of dents, dings, scuffs and scratches, and has a crack in the lower horn of the body (see photos… digitally drew a purple line on one of the photos to show you where the crack is). Due to the placement of the crack, it does not affect playability or the tuning. I had the crack looked at by a couple luthiers back when I got the guitar years ago, and the consensus was if it wasnt growing in size and not affecting the guitar‘s playability, then I could leave it un-repaired. Both luthiers did suggest to have the crack sealed at some point to avoid larger issues, especially if you accidentally ding it on the wall, smack it on an amp or drop it. Just want to note that for those who are interested!

The neck is straight, the frets are in great condition and the guitar is a smooth play. It comes with the original Super 70s pickups and star tuners, as well as the original hard shell case. The jack plate, strap buttons and bridge were replaced at some point in the past, but the original bridge will be included. The original jack plate is included as well, but note it is broken. I do not have the original strap buttons though.

The electronics look to be original and are a little finicky/scratchy at times, so I’d recommend a tech do a proper assessment and cleaning of the pots and re-solder of electronics. They are old, so they will need to be replaced eventually.

Guitar will be shipped fully insured and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out! Thanks for looking!
