I just bought my son a starter electric guitar and small amp took me back a few years to my childhood, enough history... so I decided to dig out my old Ibanez and see if I could fix it back to new condition, upon searching the web for parts it seems I owned a small bit of history..
This 2387 ct has been in a room in my house for 20 years only to come out a couple of times to be cleaned and put back in its place, WOW what a change in where its kept now..
I have no Idea what its worth, pluged it in the other day and still sounds great, a lose wire in the plug but thats all, small pitting on the picks and bridge area but still true to tone
Just thought I would take a few pics and share a little history

Looks gorgeous! I love mine as well even though it has been refinished and the pickups swapped (saw it before and after, glad someone did SOMETHING even if it was wrong, mine was in really really rough shape when it first popped up on ebay about 6 years ago (pretty deep gouges in the back, no pickups/electronics and minimal hardware still on/with the guitar but with original case... about a year and a half after that it re-emerged on ebay refinished, with pickups and a fret job... all supposedly care of a guitar tech who toured with the Allman Brothers Band. Turns out the guitar was still in the luthier's shop who did the fret work, and there was an outstanding bill on the guitar. He contacted me and said it had been there 90 days without being picked up and he wished to sell it... long story short, after a month of haggling with both supposed owners I got the guitar for $150 less than the roadie wanted (cost of fretwork/refinish was all), the guy I purchased the guitar from got taken to small claims court over it (and won his case). I think everyone (other than the roadie guy) ended up happy! Yours looks great! Kilo404
