These Ibanez Vs are beautifully made and very sought after. This one had been poorly refinished in "black spray can" and needed a complete overhaul.

The owner decided to return it to its original finish, which was intended to mimic the korina wood of late 50s Gibsons.

A full refret and new nut was needed, and an overhaul of the electrics, which were all original apart from the pickups, whcih had been replaced by a set of DiMarzio Super Distortions. A set of original Ibanez pickups was sourced from the US to return it to 'showroom condition'.

Finally, a new pickguard was cut to match the original spec. My first foray into laser cutting! Apart from a somewhat persistent smell of burnt plastic it went very well!
