Does it have a model number?

In mint condition with all the original parts - 'maybe' 600 Euros.

Saw one of these 2-3 years ago in a shop, was the same color but can't be sure of the model. It was there for complete re-soldering of electronics, new cables and new capasitor.

I have no idea of what its worth but if its in really good shape as no need for any renewing of electronics or frets are good it might be considered. I heard on ebay there go fast if the price is right but they're probably much harder to come by on europe so being slightly more expensive compared to USA prices might be normal.

They can be good guitars but realistically, they're not really worth money per se.
*In the US, used (EBAY 'sold' listings), they average around $450.00 going as low as $200.00 and never going above $600.00
Some were great, some were shit. Don't get too romantic about a 'vintage' Ibanez.
These are the Ibanez Les Paul Custom based Models ... 2391, 2335, 2341, 2350, 2386, 2393, and 2398.

My first electric was a PF200. I still have it. Can't see the headstock well enough to check the model number. There are a couple others. 799 euros seems high. When I looked into the present day price of mine, it was a few hundred less than that.

My prelawsuit ibanez is very heavy and solid. Like an old truck.

Very good points here. I"d offer them half what they are asking and see where it goes from there. I've seen those go for a couple hundred bux on ebay so they are not worth $700 Euro. That's nuts. IMHO smile.gif

That's insane. For that kind of money, I'd say buy a real Les Paul. Or buy a "real" ibby smile.gif Not an Ibby Les Paul. But that's just me smile.gif

Yeah then it is too much...I recently played an epi tribute les paul; http://www.epiphone.com/Products/Les-Paul/...lus-Outfit.aspx

PU's and pots used on USA Gibson models, its like an epi thats already modded. Slim neck was very nice, had a very upfront sound very good for high-gain sounds too;

the interest was more for the "historic" stuff

i already own two €piphone Les Paul, one Studio, seymour duncan Slash pickups, cts pot, orange drop caps, and a Custom shop, mapple fingerboard, EMG 81/85 pickups.

Those mid 70s Ibby's can sound fantastic. *I have a 1979 'artist' (335 rip-off) that is far better than most Gibson 335s.
They just don't sell for more than $450 US.

A few years ago I bought a 1982\3 Burny RLG 90 Les Paul replica which is a great quality guitar but cost me €1000.

I'm not sure that a Ibanez bolt on LP would stack up against it.
