  • The AXD82P is one of 28 guitars I have, bought it last year because wanted a hollow body but not the bulk. Still experimenting with it. Seems pretty well made and is light. The action is exceptionally low and frets and neck are perfect. For $249 CAD used in excellent condition ....no complaints at all. PU's are fine. Once owned Ken Hensley's (Uriah Heep) 6/12 1978 Artist 2640 which I bought in London, have an RG927QMZ,Ibanez SAS36FM, Ibanez SZ520QM, Ibanez Studio 105, a mikkro and AVT1 tenor.

    I work marketing with a luthier here on the island and design and build websites

    • Nice. Sounds like a nice little collection you've got there. These AXDs are pretty sparse; pretty sure I've never seen one IRL.

      I do have an semi-hollow Talman (TM71) from more or less the same period and it's a fun guitar to play. It weighs nothing compared to my solid body guitars, so it's real comfortable to sling around. I don't love the Artcore pickups. I've been trying to find time to put a piezo system in it and swap the humbuckers out for a set of P90s, but I haven't made it happen yet.

      Thanks for sharing your guitars and helping keep the Wiki complete and correct.

  • Yup both are cleaned up! Have a look at the Ibanez Studio 105 I started. Are 70's Ibby's included in the Fandom site?

      Loading editor
    • We've got a few 70's guitars listed and I hope to get there someday. For now our coverage of solid-body guitars goes back to '83 (first year of the Roadstar II series).

      My current focus is building out the hollow-body coverage. Working my way backwards and am back to around 2006 now.

  • Looks good! To change topimage went to templates and went through the protocol updated and image was posted beside existing rather than replaced which is what I hit. Oh well.

    • So to change the image on a page, you only need to change the value of the filename in the Topimage template on that page itself.

      When you edit the Topimage template it applies to ALL of the pages that use that template.

      I presume that non-catalog image is of your own AXD82P? How do you like it?

    • Yeah, things in Washington with C-19 seem to be trending in the right direction now. We're still up there on the "leaderboard" among all the states but that's mostly because we got a head start. The social distancing thing seems to be working. Just hoping our President doesn't do anything more to screw it up.

  • Hi: I’m not that good at this, so I’ll apologize before you might get frustrated. Are you selling any of your Ibanez guitars? My girl wants to buy me a 1980’s Ibanez Artist 300-500. Reason being, In 1981 I purchased my very first and very own guitar. And yes, I purchased a 1981 Ibanez Artist 300 sunburst colour from Long & Maquade and I paid $320. Sadly enough in 1983, a Freind of mine asked me if he can use my Ibanez for a gig he had that evening. To shorten the story. 4 months have gone by and no guitar. I asked for my Ibanez and I found out at that moment that he had an addiction to “H”. I never saw my guitar again. It had left a hole in my heart for 34 years and now my girlfriend wants to get me one for my birthday. They are hard to get in good condition and at a reasonable price. Can you help? Pete

    • Hi, Pete.

      I don't have any guitars I'm trying to part with at the moment, and I don't own any early 80's Artists (though I'd love to). I have an AR2619 which is essentially a reissue of the AR300 and it's a fantastic guitar. I'm sorry to hear the story about yours. It sounds like your heart was in the right place trying to help out a friend.

      I'm guessing you're in Canada, so your best bet is maybe Kijiji (if you get lucky and happen to find one locally) or Reverb. I'd expect to pay in the range of US$1,000–1,500 for a decent AR300. Good luck with your search!

  • So I really like the sound of the Super 58s on my father's AR420, and I want to get a pair for myself, but in doing some research, I see that there is a lot of debate over the specs and whether the Chinese or Korean made versions are the same or not. Some say they actually use Ceramic magnets and others argue about which number Alnico they are. Can you clear this up?

      Loading editor
    • I wish I could. Unfortunately Ibanez has never provided much detailed information on their in-house pickups.

      I agree that the Chinese, Korean and Japanese versions are very likely to be different, but I don't know any details of the differences. I also believe that it's very likely that the specs have changed over time even within the same country of origin.

      If you happen to find a source that has any solid information about these pickups, I'd love it if you'd share it.

  • I purchased an "Ibanez AE20d NT made in Korea" in 05-97, and went to the wiki to check manufacture date with the serial number. According to the guide, the first digit should be a letter. Mine is definitely a '2'. Serial number being 2 96 06 1105 (separated for clarity) the year/date and manufacturing number seems to line up. Just wanted to mention the first digit not matching the guide.

    Great site!

    • Hey Tim,

      Thanks for the info. That article on serial numbers is really focused on solid body guitars as that is the primary scope of the wiki up to this point. We are just starting to branch out into acoustics, which have a completely different set of serial number rules for the most part. Unfortunately, we haven't yet had time to research and document these acoustic serial numbers.

      As for your particular example, I think you're right that the 2nd through 5th digits represent the production year and month. The initial digit likely identifies the particular plant or supplier of this guitar.
