These were made in Japan and manufactured at the exact same time as the early Ibanez models. They are exactly the same guitar rebranded as Shaftesbury.
The mini-humbuckers have a bit more sizzle and bite than the full size pickups and give you that bit more high-end detail. These also sport a set-neck design to optimize sustain. With a typical fast neck and low action you will be cruising in comfort with the cadillac of vintage Shafty’s…..the 3414 Deluxe!!!
