Ibanez X Series DT250 in Transparent Red finish made in 1985 with Original Hard Shell Case. Serial is 1984 but pot date codes are early 1985 so we are calling this an 85. This guitar features a lightly figured solid basswood body, maple neck and fingerboard. Equipped with a Ibanez V5s in the neck and bridge positions. Controlled by one master volume, one master tone knobs and a 3-way toggle switch. The 25.5" scale length neck has black dot inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets with a thin D neck profile. The hardware is comprised of Ibanez Smooth Tuner II tuning machines, a graphite or black plastic (original) nut, a Ibanez Powerocker synchronized tremolo bridge, and black TEK-GRIP knobs.

This is the cleanest available in trans red as of the time of this posting. Not without flaws but a decent condition instrument for itโ€™s age. It is a joy to play and simply ROCKS. 

Setup with Dโ€™addario 9-42 at 4/64โ€ treble side and 5/64โ€ bass side. Setup is subject to change during shipment due to uncontrollable factors. Original hardshell case included.
