It has no sign that it had a stop tailpiece.

Winnie...Is very nice, I like the flame, and the 2630 is one of my favorite models-the bigsby is unusual.but the price ?

I'm not so sure that the Bigsby is original. The bridge shows that this is an early model and they were usually paired up with the one-piece cloud tail that is only held on with 3 small screws. These would be a lot easier to hide than post holes for the later Gibraltar tailpieces and could be obscured by the Bigsby, itself. I'd ask for very detailed pictures of the area and a confirmation that there are no hidden holes.
Also, I don't believe that there has been a confirmation that Ibanez ever used real Bigsby trems. They had copies of them and that's what I'd expect to see rather than the real deal.
Even if this was factory original, I'd say the BIN is 50% higher than it should be.

I remember trying to buy that same guitar 8 years or so ago. I had offered the guy something like $800.00 and he won't take it. He mentioned that a friend had borrowed some money like a about $1800.00 and in return he accepted the guitar as payment or collateral.
Looks to be a very nice guitar with a BAGLEY TAILPIECE.

So it's not even a real Bigsby?
I've been thinking of you lately. How's things?
