Ultra Rare and Ultra Cool 1985 Ibanez AH10 Allan Holdsworth Signature Model Guitar.
Very good player, this thing is definitely set up to shred with a killer action on a great feeling Ibanez neck
Comes as pictured with ORIGINAL case, which is a rarity in itself.
I do have both knobs with it, I had just taken them off while detailing the guitar and forgot to put the tone knob on before taking pics:)
Overall quite clean for its age, it shows a little wear here and there, some pick-scratches etc, but certainly nothing major, especially for its age.
Awesome guitar that you won’t find every day.
The AH10 is an solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1985. It is a signature model for British jazz fusion guitarist Allan Holdsworth.
The AH10 features a double-cutaway Roadstar IIshaped basswood body with a tone chamber routed beneath the pickups bolted to a maple neck with a 25½” scale and a 17″ radius 22-fret ebony fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a single custom-made humbucking pickup mounted in a black pickguard, a specially configured Powerocker tremolo with a short 150mm tremolo arm, Tek Grip knobs and Smooth Tuner II machine heads. The headstock features a special spider logo which was designed by Holdsworth.
The AH10 was perhaps the first commercially available guitar with a basswood body. Holdsworth wanted a light guitar, so Ibanez luthiers evaluated a few species of wood that weren’t commonly used for guitars including basswood and jelutong. They found that jelutong (which was the lightest of the woods they considered) didn’t hold screws as well as other options, so basswood was chosen. Basswood has since become the wood used in the original JEM777 and in the majority of the RG series over the past 30+ years.
The AH10 was discontinued after 1987.
