This is my first frequent to the site, and am a certain novice as you shall see. Just looking for any info some helpful might have on my '75 Les Paul copy in orange/red sunburst. Its serial# is I753492, on the neck boltplate. There is no# on the openbook headstock. It is a lefty. Would this be a 2350L, or is this enough info to determine? One pickup has been replaced but I have the original (I am the only owner). Does anyone know if this axe was equipped with only one type pickup or if Ibanez used more than one type? And how to determine which kind I have if so? Any info would sure be appreciated. Thanks, Danyoob

I guess you have a 2350L indeed. It should be equipped with Ibanez super70's in both bridge and neck position. These pups have super70 impressed in the back of the baseplate.

BTW: welcome!

Does it have block fret markers?If so it should be a 2386L.That model came in the orange/red burst.

CCS, both 2350 and 2386 have blockmarkers. 2386 is a setneck and 2350 a bolt on, that's why i think it is a 2350L.

Hi Danyoob

When your guitar is sunburst and a lefty and has a bolt-on neck than you have the 2350CS L. "CS" stands for "Cherry Sunburst".(the 2350 was the black version),
The serial number starting with the letter " indicates that it was made in september and the first 2 digits indicate that it was built in 1975.
So it can't be a 2386L because that on has a set neck and the serial number stamped in the back of the headstock.

Kind greetz,
Harry

Thanks fellas, this is a great forum and ya'll are a real help. I think I will reinstall the original pickup if it is a super 70, which I believe are fairly nice pups. It has a gold, soldered-on cover but is in another state right now so I cant check for an imprint. I replaced it years ago with a Gibson LP pup (thats all I know) hoping for high end gain, but really didnt notice a difference. I can remember my father trying to persuade me to get the 2386 instead, but the difference in price ($275 v. $400) precluded this. Wish I had opted up now of course, although I love the way this one plays and sounds (better than my '85 Gib SG actually.) Thanks again.

I have an earlier model of your axe, '73ish or so....treat her right and she will take care of you.
I just wish I had the original super '70s in mine.
