Surprised you found an Ibanez with bad build quality. What year was it? I had a '75 Professional and a '78 24 fret Artist dot neck, and both guitars were flawless.
Bought one and sent it back, build quality was abysmal. Would I buy another? Maybe, and now that we've not got Covid lockdown I could get to play the one I'd be buying, of course. I'd still consider one, it's got a lot going for it.
