An exceptionally Rare Ibanez 2461 with the Lawsuit Gibson style Open Book Headstock and Split Diamond Headstock Inlay. Gibson Johnny Smith inspired archtop with dual floating pickups, Gold Hardware, L-5 style tailpiece, Flamed Maple Back, and Sunburst finish. The guitar displays some play wear with some typical long finish checking on the top and some nicks & dings. A few small dings were touched up in the past. One original tuner failed in the past and a newer Ibanez tuner was installed using the original tuner button. Most of these Johnny Smith archtops came with an older archtop style 1/8" input jack. This one has had an appropriate 1/4" input jack installed requiring one extra screw hole in the pickguard. The bridge pickups on these Johnny Smith guitars tend to sink with the only support being at the pickguard. The previous owner applied a rubber support under the pickup to raise the pickup for correct pickup to string distance. Sound hole label missing. An easy playing Ibanez lawsuit archtop. These Open Book Headstock Ibanez archtops do not come up for sale often. Included is the original worn but very functional hardshell case. Many more pictures at
