Below are links to and descriptions of all my gear I currently own.
The CST-24 will impress you with its shapely mahogany body, an arched flamed maple top with a Paradise Flame finish and attractive wooden binding. Its warm tone has plenty of sustain, supported here by two powerful yet refined-sounding Roswell humbuckers controlled via a 3-way switch. The double coil pickups can be split using a push/pull tone knob, increasing the range of available sounds even further. And thanks to the easy-to-play mahogany neck with a 24-fret jatoba fretboard and a versatile 635 mm scale length, anything is possible with this guitar - fusion, funk, rock or even heavy metal.
These vintage Ibanez guitars are difficult to nail down precisely what models are which since between 1983 and 1988 there were over 50 models made. However from my research, the model I own is either a 1985 RS525 or a 1986 RG525. The differences are really only in the bridge. The 525 was made with a basswood body, a one piece maple neck with a roasewood fretboard and 24 jumbo frets. For hardware, the 525 shipped with either black or gold hardware, mine is gold, including the bridge, tuners, knobs and the pickup cavities. For pickups, the 525 was equipt with 2 humbuckers, both of which were Ibanez IBZ's. The bridge is either an original edge or a Rockr Pro. One unique feature are the strap buttons which are also gold, but they are winged to really prevent your strap from slipping or falling off. Out of any budget guitar for under $500 this is a great choice. Vintage Ibanez guitars look cool, play great and they stay in tune very nicely.
