1978 Ibanez (FujiGen) PF300 Solidbody Electric Guitar

This is a "home-brew" approach to an Ibanez Les Paul copy. They made plenty of direct rip-offs, but this Performer Series PF300 is their own variation. It's built like a '70s Gibson with a two-layer solid mahogany body capped with a flamed maple veneer. The neck is set and 3-piece maple, it has a ridiculously-fast, slim-C profile, and the pickups are a bit more chimey/crunchy than your average '70s Gibson from the same time -- they sound a bit more mid-'60s.

I really do like this instrument. I think the cutaway and shoulder feel nice and hang the guitar well on a strap. It has a tummy-cut on the back, too, and the easy-load tailpiece and long-travel saddles on the bridge are nice to have -- especially if you're the kind of player to use odd string gauges or tunings. The binding is fancy and multi-ply throughout, it has a neat tortoise pickguard, the tuners work well, and it's solidly-built.

It's also all-original save for the mini-switch (which someone replaced and then disconnected from the circuit), one volume pot, and the jack. Originally the neck pickup had some sort of coil-tapping/series-parallel thing going on with the mini-switch, I believe.

Post-repairs (glorified setup and a new jack), it plays bang-on and feels great. It's ready to go.

Condition notes: it has minor use-wear here and there throughout with minor chips and/or dings to the finish along the edges. The hardware has worn plating throughout and especially on the bridge and pickup covers. I did spray-out the electronics and they work fine but there was a lot of crackle in them initially. The mini-switch is disconnected from the circuit and one volume pot and the jack are replacement parts. I could rewire it with fresh components if desired.

It comes with: an original hard case (in ok shape) with stickers on it. It needs a handle but I will whip one up for it before it ships.
