The Ibanez 2670RE is an extremely limited edition recreation from the '70s, the era referred to by vintage Ibanez collectors as the "Golden Age of Ibanez." The 2670RE "Artwood Twin" is a double-necked electric guitar, featuring a 6-string and a 12-string.
"It's an historic instrument and its reissue will also be historic: the 2670 will be the most expensive Ibanez guitar in our history," said Paul Specht of Ibanez. "But considering the level of handcraftsmanship, and the fact that there will only be 45 worldwide, that price is really quite reasonable."
Continued Specht, "The Artwood Twin double neck is what many people from the ibanezcollectors.com website—which as a matter of fact uses the 2670 as a part of their logo— told us they wanted to see next after last year's very successful Bob Weir limited edition model."
Like the 2005 Bob Weir Model Handcrafted Reissue, the 2006 Artwood Twin is made in a small Japanese shop staffed by luthiers that made the original Ibanez models. Unlike the Bob Weir model, which had to be recreated without the original blueprints since those had been lost, the 2670 was recreated using all of the original blueprints and specifications. Only one specification has been changed: the original Super 70 pickups have been replaced with Super 58 pickups which feature a sandblasted old-style Ibanez "spaghetti" logo.
