This has just turned up on e-bay but it's a model I can't place. Can anyone help ??

Hi Russell!
This SG copy from Ibanez is the model 2383. Go to , click on the year 1973, click on "guitars", scroll the page and there you'll find it! I got such a guitar myself (also a pré-serial one) and it's great sounding! I mean: three super 70's pickups mounted...what more could you want?
Greetz, Harry

I wrote a big reply to your query, with links to the Ibanez Vintage and Vintage-Ibanez sites...but I must have lost it before uploading. Anyway, Harry is correct about it being a 2383.

I don't think the claim of "all original" is correct, take a look at the low-E string tuner.

However, it does look stunning.

Thanks John - I actually did find pics of a 2383 after Harry's e-mail. I've asked the guy about the tuner - it certainly looks to be differntly shaped but maybe it's just a bad photo ! Doesn't much matter anyway I have plenty of spare original tuners! Not that it probably matters too much because this is another seller who won't ship outside USA which isn't much use to us Aussies.

Hi John
As a further addendum I e-mailed the seller who has sent me another photo and confirmed that the tuners are all original.

Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me.

John is right! Don't let the seller fool you! The lower E-string tuner is clearly NOT the original one! Should not be a problem to find a better matching one, but we're talking about honesty and fair trade here!!!! (or should I say: the lack of it?)

Thanks guys - I;ve got a set anyway but if I can't convince the guy to ship outside US then I'm stuffed regardless !!
