This is guitar is a gently used Ibanez GB10 made in Japan. It plays and sounds like a dream.There is light play wear on the pickguard and some light tarnishing on the metal parts. Overall it is in very good condition. The only issue at all is a small crack in the lacquer on the lower neck joint as pictured.
