Please help a vintage Artist to live again!

Does anyone know of a reputable source or sources for vintage Ibanez parts and service?
I have a chance to pick up a 1977 Japanese factory built 2622 at a very reasonable price that needs electronic work (bad pre-amp).

Thank you all!

A bad vintage Ibanez pre-amp board is almost always due to a bad op-amp chip. You can purchase a replacement chip from Mouser for about 45 cents. Shipping will be more than the chip. Look at the chip and you'll see the part number. Search for it on the Mouser site and you'll find it.

If you can't replace it yourself, it shouldn't be that hard to find someone who can.

Of course, it could be a wiring problem. I have a wiring diagram for that guitar...

Or...maybe it's just the battery!
