Ibanez SA260FM BBS (Blackberry Sunburst)

The previous owner of  this 2009 Indonesian-made Ibanez had replaced the stock AHS1 neck pu with a DiMarzio DP184 and bridge 'True Duo Bucker' with a DiMarzio DP107. He'd also added a push-pull tone pot (for splitting the coils of the DP107) and Gotoh 3-way switch, and disconnected the middle (AHS2) pickup. Work done on this baby included a refret and rewiring, as well as replacing faulty electronics.
