Straight out of Ibanez’s lawsuit era, the Ibanez 2471BS is famous for being an L-5 killer. With its Spruce top and Birdseye Maple back and sides, this 2471 has a big, warm tone perfect for jazz. The DeArmond RC1100 neck pickup seamlessly compliments the natural acoustics of this 2471, and is perfect for those looking to plug in for some added volume. These features, paired with its 17” lower bout, Maple neck, and Ebony fretboard, make this Ibanez 2471BS a contender for those looking for a high-quality, reliable, vintage archtop.
