USED Ibanez Pat Metheny P35 Hollowbody

Backroads Guitars offers for your consideration this Ibanez PM35 Natural Hollowbody Pat Metheny signature guitar. This is a very interesting guitar that was discontinued around 2012. There is some very light evidence of playing scratches in the finish on the front, as well as some small and barely noticeable checks in the finish on the back and tips of the headstock. Because of the light color of this guitar we had to look through a magnifying glass to find them. We did our best to show them in the pictures. Plays and sounds great as expected, especially from a guitar over a decade old. Below is some information we found from the Ibanez wiki:

The PM35 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2008. It is a signature model for American jazz guitarist and composer Pat Metheny. It was made in China as a less expensive alternative to the flagship PM100.

The PM35 features a full-sized, full hollow body design with a maple top with a single, rounded Venetian cutaway, ƒ holes and multi-layer binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in maple and bubinga neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and abalone block position markers. Components include a single Ibanez Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups with gold cover installed at the neck, an ART-1 Tune-o-matic style bridge floating on a wood base with a trapeze tailpiece, a plastic nut, rosewood knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.

The PM35 was discontinued after 2012 and replaced with the PM2.
