• 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!

I had several Ibanez Doublenecks one of which was this AR1200................it played great and sounded great but as you can imagine it WAS heavY.:hank

YES! Super cool!

Did they make a 24-fret version?

How many dials, toggles and switches can you fit onto one (or two) guitars?!?
Do you recall what they do? My guess: I see two pickup selectors, one for each neck; one master switch to go between (or engage both) necks, four mini-toggles, possibly for coil tapping? (or Morse code or engaging the flux capacitor or a fog machine...); five rubber gripped speed knobs (very late 70s!) four of which are the usual volume/tone but are they per pickup depending on neck or are they just for each neck? I don't know what the fifth knob does. I think it's either a master volume or strobe light speed control.

Wow. That's just a crazy-awsome guitar!

A friend just picked up a AS53. He is raving about it. I haven't seen it other than pics. Looks very handsome.

Opinions on the guitar? Are you getting a lot of guitar for little dollars? Ibanez makes a whole series of these Artcores. The AS73 in Amber caught my eye.

Thanks in advance
