Description

From our brokerage client, here's a really clean 1978 Ibanez Musician MC200 neck through and Original Hard Shell Case. The instrument is a very nice example in Excellent condition and plays, looks, and sounds amazing. Possible Seymour Duncan pickup in the bridge but the original is included.

The body is an ash laminate with a laminated maple neck and a beautiful rich and dark rosewood fretboard. The guitar comes with a hard case. The guitar is in very nice overall condition showing very little playwear. The frets are also in excellent condition. The action and playability is light and easy. The supple feel makes chording and bending and absolute please. Tonally, the guitar is open and punchy with nice high end sparkle and an overall smoothness to the notes.

The MC200 is a Musician series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1978. It was made in Japan by FujiGen with production beginning in late 1977.

Like most Musician models, the MC200 features neck through body construction. It has body wings made up of an ash core sandwiched between two layers of mahogany on a five-piece maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret ebonized rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 88 humbucking pickups mounted in integrated plastic covers with individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style Gibraltar bridge mounted to a sustain block embedded in the neck, a Gibraltar tailpiece w/ scalloped "cloud" ornament, a brass nut, Sure Grip control knobs, a ΒΌ" output mounted in the guitar top and Velve-Tune II machine heads.

Several changes were made to the MC200 over its three-year production run. In mid 1978 the body shape was modified slightly with smaller horns and a symmetric waist and lower bout. In around October 1979 a Tri-sound switch for the neck pickup was added and the pickup selector was moved to the upper horn.[1] Sometime in 1980 the output was moved to the side.
