It looks similar to Hink's Daion I had a similar instrument in the 80's and 90's it was a Washburn Falcon ... w.ds&pla=1
Lovely, and the similarity is indeed striking.

My screws should arrive today, and the smell is gone since yesterday (should have done the cleaning outdoors). I've treated the fretboard with lemon oil, and have a set of 20yo strings ready (they still look OK as far as I've checked, and I prolly won't be recording the Asama anymore, esp. when the Revelation I ordered arrives).

Finally took the Ibanez AZ back. I gave it every chance.

No more for me, as stated, I don't think they make one that I want. Maybe a used "elite" Fender if I could get it cheap enough. Gut the crappy Fender electronics and put in a Vega Trem: ... w.ds&pla=1

Turns out my Asama's (DiMarzio?) humbuckers are much louder than the ones on my Ibanez Artstar.
I really like her sound, listening with cans through my Focusrite audio interface - I may have underestimated her in the past.

Sadly, she suffers from fret buzz and at least one semi-dead fret. Shouldn't have lent her out, I guess...
But I'm glad I got her in better shape, at least visually.
