   I found it hard to get information about this guitar apart from the fact that the owner bought it New when he was 16 years old in 1975. The only parts he's had changed are the Machine Heads and the input jack due to wear and tear. Our Repairer Rohan Staples has just completed a full setup on this guitar and she has been strung up with a set of Ernie Ball 10-46. It still has the original case and if it requires anything, the new owner may wish to refret her at some point. But if you like this shape then you will love this guitar. Here is a little bit of Info I found on Reverb which relates to this series of guitars. Not all the info is accurate to this beast so please don't take it as gospel.

 

The "Lawsuit" Era of Japanese guitars produced a dichotomy seen rarely in the world of guitar production: on the one had, you had a number of producers making merely visual imitations of their chosen guitars, which had little to do with the actual guitar itself, and on the other, you had things like this Rocket Roll Sr: A near perfect replica of some of Gibson's most sought after guitars.

This is, for all intents and purposes, an ash bodied 1959 Flying V copy. There's some speculation about what wood it really is, in fact, most experts believe it's a wood called "Japanese Sen", but nonetheless, in construction, sound, feel, and mojo, this 70's Ibanez is an incredible interpretation of the Flying V design. The first of it's line of Gibson lifts, this guitar has a solid ash (or Japanese sen) body paired with a set-in 3-ply maple neck. The neck has 22 frets and a rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. It features a Tune-o-matic style fixed bridge, through-body string routing with a vee-shaped "Cadillac" ornament, and two Ibanez humbucking pickups mounted in black pickup rings.
