I picked up this NOS (new old stock) LNG recently through a store in the Northeast where I bought one of my favorite UVMC ATD’s years ago. They remembered me but that didn’t help me get a better deal on this guitar – they had the damn thing priced high. But, with only one or two in similar condition in the world, and already owning one, it made sense to grab it if I could. It was actually purchased new locally by a studio owner who I guess never placed it in his studio. When he passed, his wife asked the local store to liquidate his collection. This was the only Ibanez out of 40 guitars they were asked to unload. It shows zero signs of playwear and probably had the original 1987 strings on it when it arrived!
