Today Lawman Guitars is Presenting …

A really cool and rare Made in Japan Guitar. A 1983 Ibanez AE400 Ragtime Factory Acoustic Electric Guitar with a great fitting Road Runner Hardshell case. This beautiful guitar is in great shape and has been professionally setup for playing pleasure. No cracks and the woods have mellowed over the years to give you a beautiful lushness to the finish that only time can bring.

Be sure to check out the Video Demo we did for another really cool Ibanez Ragtime. Not this guitar but one just like it only not electric...These are a ton of fun to play and Demo.

Heres some info I found on the web regarding these cool guitars.

1983 AE400 Ragtime Special

Returning to their foundation of originality, Ibanez guitar manufacturers produced the Ragtime Special Acoustic Electric in 1983 to showcase both style and function. Intricate details adorn the spruce and mahogany body, while the 20-fret neck allows players to reach the higher notes characteristic of ragtime music. The guitar's smaller body size makes the instrument a breeze to handle while still producing brilliant sound.

The Ragtime is another rare find for vintage guitar collectors.

This cool guitar is completely original. The guitar has a full 4 inch deep body, a 25.5 scale neck and the nut is 1 3/4 inch wide. You finger pickers will like this one..The preamp system is very good. Not too brassy like some many of these from the 1980's. The guitar has a few dings and some finish blushing...Not sure where that came from but wanted to disclose it. I am showing 3 pics of this. See pics 9, 10 and 11... 

The back is arched so you get a lot of sound from this guitar. I really like the Maccaferri Look Sound Hole. Very distinctive and beautiful. This is the second one of these we have found and were very happy to acquire this one for my customers. It’s a great guitar.

Sold as-is as its vintage and used..However, I have been hand picking my customers guitars for close to 20 years now and they all love the guitars I find. This beauty will not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
