Okay, someone is offering me a Ibanez DT400 Destroyer II 1982 with Dimarzio Evolution on the bridge and a Air Norton in the neck which will come with a custom case for about $200. Should i buy it or not? I had no info on the guitar, i check the HarmonyCentral which some people got it for $100- but he told me that those are the fake ones or something (cheap ones). He said this guitar is authentic, should i get it, anyone know of this guitar? He also claim that Iron Maiden and Def leppard use this guitar.

Here's the pictures:

Get it, the pickups and case alone are worth that much.

+1 and the custom case probably would cost quite a bit as well.

But i want to know if the quality of the guitar it self is good, say compare it to my Schecter C-1 Blackjack or an Gibson Explorer (which is what its copying). He say the wood is good, can anyone point me to the right direction? Don't really know the model so that suck.

EDIT: Just got the Model, Ibanez DT400 Destroyer II.

Get it the pickups alone are worth it, and a steal is always worth it. It might not play like your other axes, but it should do fine

well with that evo..hmm i myself think the evo as a shred pickup, but yeh types of metal or proggy stuff due to the fact it aim sfor definition

btw that model was top of the line at one time, plus it should be a good axe, it is ibanez knocking off another model and well... they are infamous for that.

I mean any axe similiar to another gets taken off gbecause they get sued... example "Les Paul" haha oh and the V they had for awhile, though im surprised the xiphos stayed in....

^Wow didn't know that it was "top of the line" guitar at the time, then this might be good. I wonder how good is the sustain, i like my guitar with good sustain in them.


hmmm... what do you thing this should actually cost me with all those upgrades and that custom case?

^Yaa, i guess its a steal. I am just worried because if the guitar is no good, i could just save the money to get my Mesa Mark IV.

If you don't buy it, give me the persons address and I'll buy it

^^^Yaa true..., well i got the money to get the amp already but its just i don't want to waste money if i don't need the guitar, but if the guitar is awesome i am willing to buy. I got my bank money and my pocket money (around $450, laying around the house). I don't really want to touch my bank money and i am trying to raise that $450 all the way to about $900 to get a Mesa Mark IV. So, yaa its kind of a hard decision...is it a waste of money or not, that's my mind set right now.
