    Default Ibanez Silver Series "Lawsuit" Strat

    Here's some shots of the latest addition to my guitar family, a 1978 Ibanez Silver Series "Lawsuit" Strat, which has come back today from my guitar tech. It's arrived to satisfy my desire for a maple fingerboard Strat, and it sounds fantastic and plays beautifully.

    there are so many places/pawn/ shops around Australia with a lot of hidden gems. But we still pay top dollar for 'brand' stuff.

    It was a local sale on eBay. I've had a search in for one for about a year, because I'm old enough to remember when they first came out in '77, and at that time they were better than just about any Fender on the shelf. Ibanez were really trying to establish themselves with the Silver Series, although they got themselves sued for being too close to the original. This one was AUD$400 (US$345) and the previous owner had put a Seymour Duncan Classic Stack in the bridge. I'm going to try the Surfer Antiquities that I received from Seymour (for helping out with the Melbourne UGD last year) in the neck and middle (RW/RP), since they didn't really suit my '68.

    My guitar tech has named it the "Mojo Ibanez," because it's got something special going on in its body resonance. He did a beautiful fret dress and set it up for 11-49's, and changed over to Gotoh locking tuners, along with an overhaul of the electronics. It's going to be a great players guitar by the time I'm finished, and a nice maple board alternative to my dear old '68.
