Look at the satisfied smile on the face of this Ibanez hunter: I finally laid my hands on an Ibanez Plexi Dan Armstrong copy. I already had the guitar version, so now the two "brothers" are reunited in my collection.
What d'ya think: nice couple huh?
I'm proud enough to show off.......

Nice catch Harry,
Is there no Ibanez logo on the guitar?
What PU's are there on the guitar?. Must look very impressing oŽn stage with some nice lights on...

Yep, you're right: there is no logo on the guitar. So officially it is NOT an Ibanez (because it does not say so), but it's 100% Hoshino made. Maybe they "forgot" to put on a logo, but fact is that I've seen more "Ibanez" guitars without logo.
The pups in the guitar: the one nearest to the neck is a Maxxon, the other one is a replacement of unknown origin.
I haven't checked yet what pups are in the bass; probably Maxxon's too.
Both the bass and the guitar were built around 1972.

Congrats! I was thinking a while back that it may be worth getting a run of script logo's made up.
I have one replacement but I haven't seen any on ebay only the block transfer.

Dan Armstrongs don't have logos on the headstock either.. Perhaps they were just copying that too at first?

Congratulations, Harry! They look fantastic. How do those hotrods handle?

Both guitar and bass play very well and have comfortable necks. Both instruments are quite heavy. The guitar's sound is pretty average; the neck pickup (or should I say: the "middle" pickup since it is positioned in the middle of the body?) is kinda dull sounding, the bridge pickup is very powerful, but like I told before: it's a replacement.
The bass however is very warm and deep sounding, without being old-fashioned.
But to be honest: you all know I rather collect than play these old beauties.....
