That would be October 1980. (first letter is the month, first 2 digits
the year)
Solid carved top and a looker too... It will probably be a great guitar!
I'd pay what it's worth to you.
Bargain, well it's an Ibanez, so you could get lucky and pay £200 but
it's probably worth £500-£800? THose 80's ones are getting quite dear
Tell us if you pass on it BTW.

This is a VERY rare model. I had one, and loved it. Unfortunately, I am
not monogamous, when it comes to guitars. It was the top of the line Ibanez
acoustic archtop when it was marketed and sold. Check out the label inside,
and you'll probably see the name Tamura or Sugihara hand-written in ink.
Those were the two master luthiers that built a lot of their high-end stuff.
Nice guitar!!

I've played a number of these and think them very very nice. I've got an
FA700 which I think is the equal of any L5 I've played. I paid $1500 for
mine which is probably the going rate. these days.

I've never played this model, but I've only heard great things about it.
I've got an FA-300 that I love playing. I picked it up used about 10 years
ago for $900.00.

I have a blonde FA. I bot it used for $800 back in the 80's.

The FA is a predecessor of the George Benson model - GB. They are ok
guitars. I've heard some people have replaced the pickups to get a warmer
sound.

They prices on them are still pretty reasonable and they are a good
&quot;starter&quot; guitar. I wouldn't pay more than $1200 US for it.

The FA models have nothing in common with the current GBs. The FA300, FA
500/510, FA700 and FA800 are all 17&quot; guitars and the FA100 is a 16&quot; ES175
copy. The GB 10 has a 14.5&quot; bout and the GB 200 has a 16&quot; bout with a shape
different from the FA100's. I think a GB was made using a 17&quot; body, that
was L5 like, but I don't think they're still made.

I'd say any of the FA series was good deal nicer than a &quot;good starter
guitar&quot;, especially the solid top models. Any of them - with the exception
of the FA500/510 - compares very favorably with the guitar they copied (the
FA500/510 isn't as nice as the Gibson JS, but is still a nice instrument).

Your assessment of the worth of the guitar might be correct although I
haven't seen any go for less than $1500 in years.

Peter,
Thanks for the info.
Why do you think that Ibanez guitars don't appreciate in value like other
brands (ie Gibson)?

I tried selling this guitar for what I bot it at and still couldn't get any
bites...

bruce

What model guitar do you have?

I don't know that they haven't appreciated at the same rate, but they cost
less to begin with. An JS copy went for $650-ish when new and goes for
$1500-ish now. I don't know at what rate a Gibson JS or L5 has appreciated,
but I'd bet it's not too different. Regardless, the Ibanez (being Japanese,
a &quot;copy company&quot; or ???) is not as highly regarded by the run of the mill
guitar player and Gibson's name and marketing clout are formidable. Not to
mention thay've made some pretty nice guitars over the years.
