Can anyone help with the approx. value on this? Finally got images, hope I formatted right ant can be seen. Was told the 1/4" jack was bad, and switches may need new wiring. Pick guard missing. Would love to keep, but need the money.

The headstock inlay doesn't look like Ibanez to me, though the logo is there. If it is Ibanez and it's a bolt-on, then value is around $350, as that what they have been going for on eBay lately.

Looks like model No. 2393.
It has the same logo on this poster:
It seems to be a genuine Ibanez, but it's possible that the neck pickup was replaced.
But I have seen other Les Paul replicas that had on or two pickups that were different from the catalogue (mostly other coil colours).
The value depends on where the guitar is and where the buyer is. If the guitar would be in Europe, the value would be 36% higher with the current exchange rate.
But importing it from the USA into Europe would make it too expensive, I guess.
I wonder what Harry thinks about it.
This is his cup of tea.

Yep, you´re right Ginger.
It´s the 2393 with a "post lawsuit" headstock, with correct logo and headstock inlay. The neck pickup is a replacement and the pickguard is missing.
These particular models are somewhat strange because of the maple fretboard, therefor not very appealing and sought after.
They are not rare and I think a fair price for an original one would be around 300-350 Euro (around 400 US dollars). This one shown won´t reach that amound as far as I´m concerned.
