• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Does anyone know what guitar Dickey is playing in this performance from Saturday Night Live in 1982? It’s not his usual LP, not a 335, and not the PRS of later years. AC65956D-9FF1-4041-99C4-BD9C4A1011DA.jpeg

That ain't no Gibson, it's uh Ibanez!
It's an Ibanez Artist. It's a great guitar and I'd love to have one but I've never found one with a comfy neck. I'm into the early 24-fret dot-neck version with the "butterfly" pickup covers. Alas.
Here's a link to a re-issue: Re-issue Ibanez Artist
Here's a picture of a 1983 Artist:

I had one of those, but with a more traditional stoptail. It sounded great but weighed a ton and had too much of a slim-taper neck for me.
