    I think the Ibanez Destroyers from the 70's were made from Korina which is good wood but by the mid 80's they weren't made from Korina anymore... they were either made from laminate or alder. I'm not positive but i think i heard in a guitar store one day someone saying that the later model Destroyers were a step down in quality than the ones from the 70's. The guy saying this had his Iceman with him so i'm assuming he knows what he's talking about since he had an Ibanez with him.

    Best way to tell is pull on of the plates off the back and look at the wood there. Usually the paint is not finished as well and will reveal the type of wood used i.e. laminate or solid.

    What guitar is that, that Phil Collen plays in Def Leppard. Well, let me rephrase that, in the older Def Lep Videos, Phil played a black Ibanez. Is that a destroyer also? Just courious...
