1989 Ibanez USA Custom Necromancers Castle Guitar W/Case.

Extremely rare, 1989 Ibanez USA Custom in the awesome Necromancer’s Castle graphic.

These USA Customs are becoming extremely hard to find and this graphic is quite rare.


This guitar is in very good vintage condition. As you can see by the pics, the top is in excellent shape with just a few touch ups along the edges that are barely noticeable. There is a ‘scuffed’ area on the back which I did my best to picture under very bright light so that you can see it. It is much less noticeable in person and doesn’t go deep or anything like that. Basically a scrape, but it is there.

All stock and original as far as I can tell.

This is the original Wizard neck and it SHREDS! Very thin neck, it plays fast.

Frets are in excellent condition showing very little wear.

Comes as pictured with Ibanez hard case.

Overall, a very clean, very collectible, USA made Custom Ibanez from back in the day.
