Last night http://iheartguitarblog.com/ reader 'Sean' was searching eBay for Ibanez guitars and came across a listing for a Steve Lukather prototype.Sean says "Well its out of my price range, but I went ahead and checked the other items that the seller had. It looks like Steve Lukather is using L.A. Vintage Gear to sell a bunch of his used gear. This is huge for any Toto fan. If it were Paul Gilbert selling his stuff the next auction you would see would be for one of my kidneys."
"Perhaps most enticing to an Ibanez geek such as myself is Luke's Ibanez prototype guitar. I guess the market's going to be flooded with kidneys pretty soon cos I'd like pretty much all of this stuff too!"
Here's the listing for Luke's Ibanez Prototype Guitar. It says :
~ Lukes Ibanez Prototype Guitar ~ If you’re a Steve Lukather fan then this guitar has to be the Holy Grail for you. This guitar was made for Luke in we believe 1983.
