This morning I saw a craigslist post for a Fernandez Rubber Jig (RJ-95T). There isn't much information out there in English on them. I know they were exclusively sold in Japan and that's about it. I was definitely intrigued when I read one post from someone on the lespaulforum stating: As the Wizard of Ozz mentioned, I do own one of the original custom shop guitars of this line (picture). They were originally called the Rubber-Jig. It is essentially like a '57 LP with a rather futuristic body. The one piece neck is huge... as big as the biggest '57 Historic neck I have laid my hands on. The guitar has a long neck tenon, kluson style tuners (that I replaced with the WD Kluson replicas, a real maple top (no veneer here)... As far as tone is concerned, it's a monster. I would say it's about 95% there compared to my 1995 '59 Historic. I picked that '59 from 14 other Historics, so you can only imagine how good this guitar sounds. https://www.lespaulforum.com/forum/showthread.php?20847-Ravelle-USA-custom-shop The seller's pictures were a bit blurry so I got in contact with him. Mike, the seller, seemed like a really nice guy. He told me he had bought the guitar on Reverb from Japan a few months before. The photos below are actually my very guitar, sold by Ishibashi on Christmas Eve for $840.61. So naturally I wondered why he was asking $500 for it. Surely something had to be wrong with it or he was desperate for cash. To a limited extent, both were true. The seller had found a vintage Ibanez Iceman he had to have and he had relic'd it. To be honest, the job he did on the body is respectable. I, however, was not a fan of the job he did on the headstock. How bad? Well to the point that I was reluctant to check it out even with the lespaulforum user swearing it was 95% good as his favorite R9.
