I found an Ibanez Les Paul at the pawn shop the other day, but I have no idea how much these guitars should go for. The owner couldn't tell me what model it is, but he wanted 300 Euros for it.

Are Ibanez Les Pauls rare? any good?

It was white with a maple fretboard

well check the ibanez webpage and find the closest model you can, that will give you a idea what these guitars are worth

Ibanez used to make Les Paul copies years ago. They don't have any of them up on their website anymore. Wish I could offer more information but I don't know much about them.

An Ibanez LP copy? That thing must be ancient.If it's in good condition I'd snag it,since they're collectors items now and that's a good deal for a piece of guitar history.

Ibanez's Les Paul models are all good, it's worth getting.

Try and get the serial number and look it up. Some of the older Ibanez guitars are really good. I snagged a 1984 Artist for $400. It plays and feels better than my Gibson Les Paul.

Yes, get it. Most people say they rival the originals (and far surpass anything Gibson put out at the time) in terms of craftsmanship and quality of tone.

Man, old Ibanez are so amazing yet not nearly as hard to come by as you'd think.
I just caught sight of a 1985 Destroyer for £400. I'm so pissed off that I can't afford it ¬_¬

that's what i'd have thought, most of those "lawsuit" japanese copies are very well-regarded. EDIT: obviously don't buy it if you try it and it's crap.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

THAT'S the one!

Then it's about 30 years old...if it's in good nick and plays well go for it, if it was me I'd probably take a punt on it regardless.

God, I have wanted a PF300 for a while now. That was the stock set neck Les Paul copy from the 70's, with the star tuners. In black too. I played one about 2 years ago, and it compared very closely with a Gibson Studio, probably the next two guitars I am looking at.

I do hope its nicer than the stuff they sold in UK under the Antoria and CSL brand names. They were the best copies around but still like playing a shovel compared to ANY real one. I recently chopped one I bought years ago for £30 and forced a neck from a 12-string acoustic on it. Best it ever sounded.
