    Nice guitar. Explorer type guitars always have a lot of tone because you have the mass of that hockey stick peg head vibrating and you have a big body with a lot of mass but two extended points that resonate. Crank up the amp and it going to carry all that resonance to the speakers and you get that big full sound. I bet this is why Eddie used a Destroyer in the studio. They just sound great.

        Last time I saw Cheap Trick Rick Nielsen played one of his original 50’s Gibson Explorers. They made 16 of them and Rick has two. It was the best sounding guitar out of everything he played that night. I was seated in a grand stand with a big over hang facing the stage and the front of house guy really had the PA dialed in perfect. Good stuff!

            One sold at auction for a million. Rick takes his on the road. He’s got a few rare ones he plays live.

              It did occur to me.

              How much did you pay for that?

                I saw a pretty clean one for sale about five years ago and they wanted $3,000 for it. The Ibanez Destroyers aren’t Korina wood. They are actually made of a Japanese hardwood. I think a plumb tree wood if I remember right. They sound great though.

                  Chis Holmes Destroyer was used by Eddie to record Women and Children First with.

                    I bought a Destroyer from a kid for $100 a few years ago - it was very good value at that but I haven't really played it.

                      What year is it? $100 is a heck of a good deal on any guitar that plays decent.

                            What's the finish on a 70's Ibanez explorer? Nitrocellulose or polyurethane?

                              Looks all original. Pretty clean but the nut area is buggered. Guitar prices are so crazy now. I have a rare Kalamazoo built super Strat and one just like mine but in worse condition went for $2,800 on Reverb. I bought a Gibson 59 Les Paul reissue right when Gibson got their quality control straightened out under the new management. Great guitar but I'm glad I snagged it when I did because prices are shooting up.
