Different body shape and hardware, though.
If I copy their peghead (i have an artist of that era) and put it on the three LP special copies I'm making, and make a peghead overlay that says "Gibanez", do you think anyone will sue me?
I doubt it. Unless you sell a few thousand of them???
I'm sure it will look good.
99% of the comments I'd get here locally would be "that doesn't look like gibson". I like gibson's aesthetics a little better, more classic, but the string spacing on the ibanez is better, and I adore the AR300 that I have. 35 years old and it still doesn't need any truss rod adjustment other than what it takes to keep the truss rod from rattling.
I could rankle shorts here by saying "I like the LP special pattern, but I figured I should put a peghead from a better company than gibson on the guitar".
I've got two Yamaha exact Strat copies from the same time period I believe (79).. both excellent guitar and very undervalued IMHO.
There aren't many non-Fender telecaster copies that I like, but this one looks great.
Only slightly. And they were made on the same line by the same people.
Telecasters and Stratocasters are also only slightly different, and they are made in the same places.
if you ever want to sell, I would be interested. I had one of those in the 80ties. I loved the pickups.
I have an 82 Washburn made by Matsumoko. Great guitars from there
I would get the pickup route cleaned up and prepped for another pickup. You might have a great Nashville Tele there.
I would probably put some new budget electronics in it, after a good set-up.
Pearl Guitars were manufactured by Fujigen-Gakki.
Early Ibanez guitars were made by Guyatone with sourced components (primarily necks) from Matsumoku. At one time or another, Matsumoku also made guitars under contract to Hoshino/Ibanez. Hoshino became the exclusive maker of Ibanez, which remains their exclusive brand. Hoshino did not contract manufacture for other brands.
LOL. Just came across another source attributing Pearl Electrics to Matsumoku and acoustic by Fujigen. Japanese "Badge" guitars of the 60's-'70's were all over the place from the sounds of it.
I have never seen a Pearl tele, but a bandmate of mine had a '70s Pearl Les Paul copy, that was an envied piece of equipment in my neck of woods back in the day. It was a stellar guitar.
Hi Frakbak, nice guitar! I had one of those in Berlin end of 70ties, beginning 80ies . They cost those days between 300 and 350 Deutsche Mark (160€) , colour also in black. I loved it, especially the bridge pickup. Can you tell me have much ohms the pickups have? Could you measure? I'm now looking for such a Telly buch don't find one... and the later "by Vorg" I didn't like...
Hope you have fun with that guitar.
I'm not surprised. Pearl also made a line of really nice pedals back in the 80's. Some of the circuits were quite innovative back then, such as the parametric overdrive and the analogue octave. You should get a couple to go with the guitar!
The red bridge pickup might mean something, red for red hot?
