Ibanez J Custom JCS-1(S9870)CRS - $2500 - Sold!!

Filed Under (Ibanez, x- SOLD -x) by Importstrings on 01-08-2011

This is the VERY sought after JCS-1 (S9870) from 2000~2002. ONLY 12 were originally released in 2000, due to their popularity Ibanez extended production until 2002, in total 36 made ONLY!! (2 of which I own, I’m a big S series fan). S series J Customs are very few and far between getting hold of them is very difficult, these models sold out almost instantly when first released.

Quite often we are contacted by collectors/musicians wanting to slim down thier collection or sell a particular guitar, which is great because we can pass on a little bit of history surrounding an instrument. This was a one owner guitar purchased in 2002 by a pro muso who only used it for recording purposes. He plays in a Metal band that sounds similar to Extreme and has done a few radio/T.V commercials with it (Never been played live). It was purchased because of its incredible sound and versatility, it has also been well maintained.

This is a beautiful looking AAAA grade Quilted Maple top and matching head with a Honduras Mahogany back and again Honduras Mahogany/Bubinga set-in neck with an Ebony fingerboard. All are quite heavy woods so there are very rich, warm tones and deep, crunchy lows. The playability, versatility and sound of this J Custom oozes quality. You dont just hear it, you feel it!!.

The appearance and condition of the JCS-1 is very, very good its in awesome playing condition, little ware to the hardware, 80%+ frets, very light scuff/scratching to the back and a small ding to the back top edge, overall very nice collectable condition all in its original case. This maybe the only one of its kind in Australia, this is one serious looking, sounding machine!!!

I would love to dribble on more but, on another note Being a very big S series fan, if your after 540S LTD, FM, gambale S series guitars from the late 80’s~late 90’s with the DiMarzio/Ibanez U.S.A or q series pick-ups and custom made inlay etc.. tell us we can get them.
