Just came across this one on ebay. Anyone has any comments?

At a quick glance... without being able to understand a word off that site... looks like a roughed up old Blazer to me with a hacked up headstock and a stripped body maybe? I'm not familiar with those at all, but at a glance that was what I thought of first.

OK, here's a hack-job translation:

Guitare Electrique IBANEZ en bois.

Wooden Ibanez electric guitar.

Nouvelle cordes.

New strings.

La guitare est seine mais

The guitar is "healthy" but...

- les micros sont à reconnecter.( Rien n a l air d etre connecté à l intérieur)

- the pickups need to be reconnected. (I don't think anything is hooked up inside).

- Il y a du papier alu ds la cavités sous les micros qui devrait être refait (ils fonctionnaient bien il y a 10 ans ;) ).

- There is some (loose?) paper under the pickups which must be redone (they worked 10 years ago).

- La plaque en bois plus sombre n'est plus dans un exellant état et il manque le bouton tone.

- The pickguard (dark wood piece) is no longer in good shape and the tone knob is missing.

Bonnes enchères.

Good luck bidding.

A venir chercher a ixelles.

Si vous voulez la voir avant d'enchérir... 0479 45 66 55.

If you want to see it before bidding, call 0479 45 66 55.

Etant loin d'etre specialiste, je vous conseille de venir chercher la guitare sur place afin d'etre sur de ne pas avoir fait une mauvaise affaire.

Since I'm far from a specialist, I advise you to come look at the guitar so you can be sure not to make a big mistake.

papier alu is aluminium foil (shielding in the cavities under the pickups).
In Holland we call it "zilverpapier".

Could be a nice player, but not a collectors item anymore.
It hurts to see that headstock.
