    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:

    Very good condition. Body and finish work absolutely flawless, as new. Some wear on the upper side of the bridge, and some fret greening, but nothing significant or permanent.

    This was a limited run by the Japanese dealer Ikebe, which I purchased personally in Japan in 2012. It featured special construction, higher quality woods, no vine inlays (finally!), and three one-off finishes.

    The full story of this run can be found here (with a little google translate help):

    Specs:
    - African Mahogany body
    - Highest Ibanez grade flame maple top (Finish is Charmant Wine Red)
    - 5pc Maple/Walnut w/Titanium neck reinforcement, VelveTouch finish
    - Indian dark rosewood fretboard, abalone side dots
    - ToneZone bridge, Air Norton neck
    - Original Edge trem
    - includes form-fitted hardshell case (possibly the best case I've ever used)

    Yea, just the conversion price. USD bills.

    Heh, mostly just going for cash - it's one of my favorite j-specs (apart from those 24.75" scale neck-through quilt top maple board limited runs.)

    Bump. Would love to just move this around Europe for a cool amp (Engl/Diezel/Bogner) or glockenklang cab?

    Oh, and just an additional point - someone is selling something I want and is interested in $2-3k range LPs/PRS/ and EBMM majesties (especially the majesty). He's located in the US. If you're there and you have something like this, hit me up and maybe we can do a 3-way trade (with you getting this guitar first, just to put all the risk on my end).
