Ibanez ‘Artist’ series from the 70’s are very well-regarded instruments, so-called Gibson 'master clones', known for their great sound & build quality.

this top of the line 593FB dates to 1978. It is a beautiful instrument- great tone & playability. it has been recently professionally set up; the head is new.

There is mother-of-pearl "vine" inlay going down the fretboard & on the back of the resonator.
I believe that the neck, pot and resonator are maple, the fretboard is rosewood-with no apparent wear- & the hardware is chrome. The tailpiece appears to have been replaced. There is a 5th string capo installed (original to instrument).

It is missing 1 of 4 screws that hold the resonator & there is a crack in the resonator flange ring; neither of those things affects the sound. The original hardshell case is included & is also in good condition.

A similar instrument owned by Andy Goessling (Railroad Earth) sold for $1,625 at auction 4 years ago:
