Here's a post-lawsuit series Ibanez model, a 1976 2350.

The Gibson open-book headstock 2350's were still around in 1975, and in 1977 Gibson sued Hoshino for copyright infringement based on the headstock.

Notice that Ibanez had already changed the headstock shape a year prior to that based on this year guitar (1976).

This guitar belongs to the guitar player in my old high school band, and I remember when he got it new in 1976.

Its now owned by his daughter.

What I wouldn't give to have this fine instrument, as its an incredibly good playing and sounding instrument, and has quite the personal history behind it.

1976 Ibanez model 2350 Les Paul

"Lawsuit guitars are a myth."

That's mostly correct. The act of filing a suit that never reaches a courtroom does not make it a lawsuit. The Ibanez story was never a lawsuit.

I have a PRS single-cut. PRS, sued by Gibson, was ordered to cease making the body style. PRS appealed the ruling and had the original verdict reversed a few years later.

If I sue someone, it doesn't need to make it to court to be called a lawsuit. If it doesn't go to court, we say the lawsuit was dropped, but it was still a lawsuit.

If Mark Agnesi farted in the forest, and there was no one there to hear it; did it really make a sound???

I hereby certify that I have two Made-In-Japan guitars that, allegedly and/or may or may not have been produced under the real or imagined possibility that major American guitar manufacturers could be considering litigation, writing a sternly worded letter, or perhaps even asking “pretty please” for their Japanese counterparts to stop making them so goshdarn much like the Real Thing. ;-P

My attorney will neither conform nor deny that any court action may or may not have taken place between the parties.

Are we talking about the 3-peice that a lawyer wears into court?

Yes. I'm wearing the gray one because my black pinstripe lawsuit was...ahem..."taken to the cleaners."



Prosecuting attorney: "Is your appearance in court today pursuant to a subpoena delivered to you via certified courier in April of this year?"

Me: "No, I always dress like this."

I have the Ibanez copy of the Gibson L6s. With open book headstock. Varitone switch. Interesting all-maple guitar
