1986 Ibanez RG140 Roadstar II
Summary: The Ibanez Roadstar II series was introduced in 1983 and
produced for Hoshino Gakki and sold under the Ibanez brand. The Roadstar is a rough approximation of the
classic Fender strat and this one has 2 single coil pickups & a humbucker
with tone knob push button to make it a single coil. This instrument also comes with the original
case & the original whammy bar!
Body: Solid basswood body, double cutaway with a
beautiful deep red finish & a matching red headstock.
Neck: Maple neck with a
rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets, dot inlays, original tuning keys, matching red
headstock, RG140 sticker on the back of the headstock.
Pickups/Hardware: 2 single coil
pickups, one humbucker(with push button tone knob to make it a single coil),
black pickguard, black pickup covers, tremolo system, volume knob, tone knob w/
push button pot, 5-way switch, original Ibanez tuning keys.
Cosmetics: This guitar is in fabulous shape considering
it is from the mid 1980’s. There are
lots of pick scratches on the black pickguard & a few nicks & dings on
the body. There is some light buckle
rash on the back but overall the beauty of this deep red color will overshadow
Playability: We set this vintage Ibanez up with a new set of 10’s and it plays and
sounds great. The action is low &
the truss rod is fully working.
Weight: 7 lbs, 15 oz.
Case: This vintage Ibanez comes with the original
Ibanez hardshell case – this case is grey with the Ibanez logo on the top &
it has black interior. The original
whammy bar is also included!
