jenifer lopez gave me this guitar yesterday. it's an x series ibanez explorer. made in japan, haven't looked up the serial yet, but pretty old. since my old band sacrament L.A. is gonna have a reunion concert, having a metal guitar is gonna help. it wasn't well taken care of, i had to take it apart completely, as many parts were put on wrong. conditioned and cleaned the fret board, polished the frets, had to re-drill the neck screw holes (i have no idea why they put threads in both the body and the neck, that is not how fasteners work properly), took out all the electronics, took apart the tremolo and cleaned every part. cleaned it completely and put it back together. the setup was so wrong before, it took quite a while tom get it right. the neck had a shim and the saddles were way high, the intonation looked like it was set up for a lefty, but it was strung righty.

I have been fortunate enough to get a great bite of the Apple of Life. One thing I know for sure. Watch out for the Worms!

Jennifer Lopez?

I would guess somewhere between 83-87 crazy guitar.
Does anyone ever read these things.  I have some guitars, some amps and some effects but none of them play the guitar for me.... Yet.

She was probably banging an old metal guitar player when she was a kid.

it's a 1984 ibanez destroyer. i had a bunch of 90's ibanez, rg's mostly with the wizard necks, those were junk. this thing has a nice neck, a kahler trem ibanez copy. i might show up with it to a blues jam on sunday.
