This 2622 Steve Miller model from1978 has been gigged and has the scars to prove it,but the sound and playability more than compensate for the scars. Minimal fret wear for a 1978 Japan produced guitar. . The fretboard is Ebony with Pearl/Abalone/Pearl block inlay.

New photos added

In passive mode the Volume/tone controls don't seem to do much but when you switch in the EQ, the boost knob is unbelievable! The front knob still doesn't seem to do much even in active. I'm not sure if this is by design or not. - everything is original and the EQ works fine! Comes with hardshell case.

serial number: K786920

Here are the warts:
There are a few nice dings - see pics - and several scratches, mostly on the back. A lot of the gold is worn off and there is some green patina in several places. There is pitting on the bridge .
NOTE GOUGE IN BACKSIDE PHOTO LOWER LEFT.

PRICE $1050 plus shipping from Minnesota zip 56560
I won't be able to,ship this until July 10 when I return to the USA.and a friend can help me ship.

International buyers welcome but shipping will reflect the higher cost. I do,have experience with international sales and they have always gone well.

Thanks,
Steve t

Looks like a great guitar. I'm guessing you copy-pasted the features list because it includes "tri-sound mini-toggles" which I don't see on the guitar.

Hi, John,
Thanks for the input all around. I did copy and paste the features list for my guitar and assumed the one white toggle switch on my guitar near the neck was the " three way toggle switch" to which you refer.

Do you have a photo of The 2622 which shows these mini-toggle switches? I have never seen them on a 2622. On Reverb.com there is a 2622 like mine that has two white switches. It has "significant wear" according to the seller and cost $2595 shipped. The switch near the neck pickup is a three way switch. Please check it out:

https://reverb.com/marketplace?query=ibanez%202622

When I do a search for "Ibanez 2622 images" I get photos exactly like mine with five dials and two switches as in my first photo.
See here:

Again, thanks, Stevet

No pics, I don't have familiarity with any of those Ibanez models, I was just comparing the feature list to the pic and the only mini toggle I see is the one that turns on the active eq or whatever it is.

No disparagement intended, it looks like a beautiful guitar!

No problem at all, John.. I've just never seen more than two switches on these 2622s
All the best, Stevet

I bought a Ibanez double cutaway in beautiul Butterscotch
transparent, that shows thru to wood grain of the solid body. cheap model of this guitar and it sounds great.. good tone. I have thought of keeping. But I bought to boost my social sec check and ended up giving away 17 instruments to the g4v program to help Vets with PTSD AND addiction problems. Heart over ran check book, but I had to do it, lol
Amazing sounding guitars. Surprised it hasn't sold. Most don't know how good they sound.
Good Luck Steve
CAA Whoa! Very Happy

The thing played and looked beautiful. I was hoping for sort of a Les Paul sound but the sound was warmer. It sounded great but the type music I was playing at the time, Southern Rock, Blues and straight up Rock and Roll I wanted a nastier sound. Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead played one of those, his was a signature model and I believe he still has it. Really well built guitar, too bad you can't just keep it. Good luck with your sale Steve, really nice axe.
