I am wondering if anyone could provide information on this banjo. 

I have pretty much looked everywhere for this model with no luck.  Lots of the blond finish and several with the fiddle head but this is the only one I have found with the flying eagle double cut peg head.  

They show up in the 1976, 1977 and 1978 Ibanez catalog but that's about all I can come up with .

Being so far from the USA (New Zealand) we did however get to see those. I remember in the 70's going to a music shop in the City of Auckland (NZ"s largest city) and playing ALL the Ibanez banjos there. Included was the above model. Banjos are generally not set up in the music stores so they can sound not as good as they should. This was the case here. Of all the banjos there, only were three I actually liked the sound of (the one included here). I have never see another 589.

Thank you very much for the reply.

I'm sure they are out there but I've just not been able to find much info
