This is one very nice example of a post lawsuit Antoria (Ibanez) 2457 Model ES355 copy made in 1976/1977.
Not many seem to be branded Antoria which I believe was the export brand for Ibanez.
Its a stunning made guitar with it’s high quality Japanese craftsmanship.
This was the high spec model with through neck construction, three piece maple neck with volute.
The figuring and, colour and slight flame on the neck rear really adds to the outstanding cosmetic finish.
This also plays fantastic, the neck is typically slim but feels very nice in my hand, and I prefer chunky necks.
Condition wise is excellent given it’s age. Its not seen much live action with only the slightest of play wear signs, small chip on the rear (very small) and tarnishing to the vibrola, machine heads and pick up covers.
Really nice to have in the shop and very sought alert among collectors and players.
Comes with original yellow lined hard case.
Although every guitar is checked at the point of buy in for condition we try to describe as accurately as possible and with the nature of every vintage, modern, used guitar you will always find blemishes held in certain lights that we have not solely pointed out.
These are usually very small lacquer marks or polish swirls and you have to expect a margin of very light marks that go undetected in usual lit environments.
Very good given age
