Beautiful ebony fretboard with fret edge binding and abalone dot inlays:




... And "Flying Fingers" Super 80 pickups:


It's in pretty good conditions, especially considering its age, except for this defect on the upper side binding:


Here it is in the 1978 Ibanez catalog:




According to "The Guitar Dater Project":

"Guitar Info
Your guitar was made at the
Terada Plant, Japan
1978
Production Number: 5890"



BTW, it was the last year they were made with the "right" ES-335 shaped body, before the lawsuit and the consequent introduction of the slightly smaller AS series...



?1160 = ?990 --> price drop --> ?1060 = ?900 --> 2nd and last price drop --> ?990 = ?840 --> Ok, ?940 = ?800, will ship worldwide, PayPal possible.

I thought it was a Fujigen made guitar too at first, but then I got that result from that site, so I just supposed I was wrong...

Put it on the Ibanez Collector's World forum and I bet it sells quick.
