Ibanez Artist 2629 335 Semi Acoustic Guitar Japan 1978 + Original Case Mexicolas
Ibanez Artist 2629 Semi acoustic electric guitar. Made in Japan in Feb 1978 from the serial number. It comes with the original hard case which has the band name Mexicolas stencilled on it. Mexicolas were a Birmingham based band who had a tv documantary made about them around the mid - late 2000s. I assume the guitar was part of their gear but have no further provenance on this.

The guitar itself is in very good used condition, some small marks and surface scratches and the odd small indent. Replacement pickups (Iron Gear Tesla Shark) and possible replacement knobs.

There is some tarnishing to the hardwear and general signs of pre ownership. The scratchplate is a replacement ebony one. Original case a little tatty but functional.

The guitar plas nicely and is , like all these early Japanese Ibanez, pretty high spec. The frets are castellated like Gibsons and the fretboard is ebony. The electrics work cleanly and well.

International buyers welcome - please message for quote - Collection in person welcome. Check out the full size pics below.

A set up to your own requirement may be wanted/needed when you receive the instrument. Below is a copy of a couple of messages I received regarding the link between this guitar and the band Mexicolas. Hi, Just noticed your Ibanez Artist listing! All the best with it\.

Hi again I managed the band and also set up and managed the small indie label that they were on. I also managed Jamie (singer, guitarist and songwriter) in his previous 2 bands before Mexicolas. Your item will be well packaged and boxed. Please note the majority of the guitars/pedals/amps I sell are second hand and used. I try to describe fairly and accurately to the best of my ability however all aspects are open to interpretation. Questions are welcomed and will be answered promptly. Unless stated I try to send out all instruments playing/working well and freshly strung however a pro set up to your requirements may be beneficial once you receive your guitar.
