    With a lineage that dates back to the early 20th Century, Ibanez entered the guitar building fray in the 60s making copies of American designs before branching out into their own, quickly gaining attention of artists such as Bob Weir and John McLaughlin. 

    The Artist series was their first offering, launching them onto the world stage. The 2700P crossed the stylings of the 2622 and Musician line, combining the body shape of the 2622 with the construction and electronics of the Musician range. The body featured a through neck construction with wings of ash, maple and zebrawood laminate.

    The guitar is in great condition. The poly finish is durable and as such has survived well. Every piece of wood is well showcased here.  

    The seven piece walnut and rock maple through-neck too is in great condition with plenty of life left in the original frets and no signs of wear to the ebony fretboard. The use of binding and abalone is very subtle and compliments the guitar. 

    The hardware has hardly worn at all and shows no signs of corrosion. The Gibraltar bridge and tailpiece show the most wear though this does not affect functionality. 

    Plastics are in great condition. 

    Electrically everything is correct and in full working order. 

    The guitar comes with its correct green lined hardshell case and original hang tags

    This is a great guitar, a testament to why US manufacturers were understandably concerned by these guitars from the land of the rising sun. It's well balanced and a joy to play, the mix of pickups offering a wide palette of tones. The EQ really expands the guitar's horizons.

    This is a truly stunning example and would make an excellent addition to any collection.
