Looking for a nice jazz box? Like other Ibanez guitars of the era, this 1977 2455NT shows great attention to detail, excellent quality and killer performance. Made in Japan as were the best Ibanez guitars of this period.  As nice or nicer than many higher priced Gibsons from this same period! Great quality and specs throughout. The hollow body features a spruce top and gorgeous flame maple back and sides. Just like an L-4 CES! The laminated maple neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl block inlays. Dual Ibanez humbuckers deliver smooth tone.  Stock Ibanez Sealfast style tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is a gorgeous natural and is set off by gold hardware and tons of inlay and binding. A top notch, super quality Japanese archtop!

This is a nice playing and sounding archtop. The neck is straight, the action is good and the frets show some average wear but play fine. The pickups sound good. Condition wise, this guitar shows wear you would expect for its age. Moderate pick, clearcoat, and belt scratches as well as some chips, dents, and dings. Nothing out of the ordinary for a 70s guitar. The binding has started to darken and the heel cap shows some cracking. The hardware shows some corrosion. Comes in original hardshell case which is pretty rough on the interior.

This is a great guitar for a player that wants the look and tone of a Gibson archtop but without the outrageous price. Many folks would argue that this Ibanez will meet or exceed many 70s Gibsons in tone and quality. Here's a great guitar for a lot less than the competition.
