1978 Ibanez 684 Concord with hard case.
These Hummingbird copies caused upset with Gibson as they were built the same quality, if not better, than the same period Gibson’s – hence why these are known as the ‘lawsuit era’ of Ibanez guitars.
Made in 1978, this is no exception to the rarity and build-quality of these lawsuit era models.
Body: Fine Grained Spruce Top, Hand Polished Jet Black Top, Back & Sides & Rosewood Bridge
Neck: Rosewood Fingerboard & Pearloid Inlays
This has been restrung and set up by a highly skilled local luthier. Plays and sounds great!
This is in brilliant, used condition. As you can see in the pictures, it has nothing significant to report but does have a few small marks.
In our opinion, the only things that have been changed are the 2x machine heads (originals are included in the sale).
Overall, this is a very rare and collectable guitar. Not only is this sure to increase in value year on year, but also it can be an enjoyed investment.
Come along and have a play!

The Music Locker prides itself on offering vintage and collectable pre-owned instruments and equipment (the Products).
We take all reasonable steps to ensure the equipment has been inspected by a competent person in the UK to ensure it complies with UK safety standards. This may mean it does not comply with the current standards in the country in which it will be subsequently used. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to ensure it is inspected by a competent person knowledgeable with the relevant electrical safety standards within that country, prior to connecting to any live electrical circuit.
It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels. Therefore, your personal preference may differ, depending on your circumstances (i.e. collector or musician), and you may decide to service the item in more depth upon receiving.
The Music Locker cannot accept responsibility for any costs of refurbishment to a standard different to the one advertised.
