I’ve always wanted one of these old Ibanez V’s that were first availabe when I started to learn how to play the guitar, but have never located a nice example. Like most Ibanez guitars, these are great players and were used and abused from the beginning. I’ve never found one in mint, unaltered original condition until now. This guitar is nearly perfect – it’s a 1982 model that looks as clean as something you could buy new today. However, it’s missing the original case. If anyone has an extra, original edition Ibanez V case available, please let me know.
