We’re happy to report that there’s a breath of spring in the air here in the High Desert and, with the warming temperatures, the return of a few early-arriving birds, including this um . . . dove, which recently landed in our inventory. Okay, to state the obvious, this guitar is not a Gibson. Rather, it derives from Japan during the era of Ibanez’s well-regarded “lawsuit” guitars. However, it does faithfully replicate certain details from the brand that inspired it, including an elaborate pickguard, adjustable bridge, trapezoidal fingerboard inlays, spruce top and rosewood back and sides. A solid, well-built instrument with a nicely enhanced midrange that is equally well-suited for songwriting, performing, or providing “sonic putty” to hold a track together while recording, a la Keith Richards during the Beggar’s Banquet era. As the photos indicate, we’ve taken advantage of the unseasonably nice weather to play a few of our new arrivals outside on the porch and are happy to report that this guitar is very stable, holding its tuning exceedingly well, despite the fluctuating temperatures and mixed sun and clouds overhead. A few minor marks on top and the usual headstock dings (see photos), else very good. Includes a period-correct chipboard case in fair condition.
