Ibanez PF160 1982 Vintage Rare

$ 750.00

This is a very rare, vintage Ibanez. They were only made in 1982, only 180 were made in total (60 in polar white), and they were only sold in Germany. It has a set neck too. These don’t come on the market often as very few even exist in the US that I can tell.
This guitar plays great, has very low action, sounds great (super sustain) and is fully functional. As far as I can tell it is all original other than the vol/tone knobs (I bought it with the black knobs) and tail piece and bridge which I swapped out. The toggle switch was replaced by me. The original tail piece and bridge come with it. The downside is, someone long before I bought aged or “relic’d” the finish on the body (like the dulled it or sanded it lightly somehow) and it has a professionally professionally repaired crack in the neck near the nut. Please see the pictures and ask any questions. I bought the guitar like this and it’s not an issue. It stays in tune perfectly and doesn’t interfere with the guitar all. All this effects value – I know this well – but this is still a great guitar and super rare! I hate to sell it, but I am selling almost all my gear and guitars, so this one is going too. Comes with a new-ish (2 years old) Roadrunner case in great condition that I bought for it. 11 lbs.
