Hello UG,

So my father gave me his old acoustic ibanez he says its from the 70's/80's and I was hoping u knew a few things about it.

Model: v - 300
Made in Japan
SN: 0031940

I really like the sound but is this generally considered a good sounding guitar? I already found whats it worth. The only thing i couldnt find was when it was made, the ibanez dating machine didnt give any results. So I hope you will know more!

I also want to put some money in it, is that worth it though?

The geometry of acoustic guitars deteriorates with age, due to string tension. This means that it might not be possible to get the action low without major work, that is, a neck reset. Even if it is possible to reset the neck on that guitar, the cost might be around $500 (here it is about Oz$500). I think it would have to have a lot of sentimental value to be worth spending that. So my suggestion is to get it looked over for major structural problems by a good acoustic technician.

If it did have sentimental value and bad geometry, I personally would convert it to lap steel, because that is one of my interests.
