Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting..

A really cool 1973 Made in Japan Ibanez Model 2616 Jazz Artist guitar. These guitars were way ahead of their time and of course directed their sales efforts to the Gibson Players that couldn’t afford a real ES175. They did a great job…wonderful guitars!

This guitar came from my finder in VA that had two of these Made in Japan Jazz Big Box Guitars. They were owned by a Jazz Player and this one was played to death…. We replace every fret as they were completely worn down. Jeff the Tech did a marvelous fret job and it plays like a dream now. Cracks or body breaks. The guitar was well cared for..just played a lot!

The guitar is all original except for the Pickups and Tuners. Most Pro Players will replace the MIJ Tuners with something more reliable…the Gold Made in West Germany replacement tuners did the job for him.. they continue to operate great today. He also replaced the original Ibanez Humbuckers with an amazing set of original 1970’s Bill Lawrence Blade Humbuckers. They are incredible sounding pickups. Very toneful and lively…. A fantastic replacement pickup for this guitar. These pickups are being reissed by Lawrence Pickup today and reissues sell for about $200 a piece. That’s for new ones. These are the originals!

This Laminated Maple Jazz Box plays as good as it looks. Very little player wear on this one. We had it Profesionally setup with new 10’s as well as the complete fret job, and it has great awesome low playing action that very easy on the fingers. The knobs, pickguard,  Tailpiece, bridge and wiring are original. This is a really cool guitar.The body is 41 inches long and the width is 16 inches... The depth is 3 3/8 inches and the nut measures 1 5/8 inch...it has a 24 2/4 inch scale neck... normal dings and scratches you would expect for a guitar thats 45 years old...but looks great!

The original case is still protecting this cool guitar. Yes, it is used but the hard shell case is still all together and has the original handle, latches and hinges. It will continue to protect your cool Jazz Artist Guitar for many many years. Check those pics!

Sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used, however, I have been hand picking my customers guitars for over 18 years now and they have all loved the instruments I found for them. This cool 1973 Ibanez Jazz Artist guitar will certainly not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
