Just to add to the previous opinion, this guitar is an obvious copy of the American Harmony H1264 Guitar, made by Harmony in Chicago from 1970 to about 1972 (spruce top, maple body).
You can see this "752" on the 1971 Ibanez catalog, and it is a typical instrument of this era Japanese manufacturers began to invade the U.S. market by copying their own models. Even the term "Jet Black" color is for a copy of the term used by Harmony.
752 the neighbor in the catalog with 751 color 3 tone sunburst, itself a copy of the Harmony H1266.

kristolikid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
It's an old guitar in the late 70s, but an excellent bill (30 years, the wood will not move!)
I had bought from a friend in 82, and despite some settings handle regular at that time (the wood was not dry enough) it still gives me full <span class="skimwords-unlinked">satisfaction.Les</span> bass is very well made, just what that it takes power, the media rich, and highs do not have to blush before the current productions, especially electro-acoustic (Takamine, Yamaha and sisters)
The special feature of this guitar is that:
1 - The string height is adjustable
2 - It is playable rise in left (double pickguard, can reverse the nut and bridge)
3 - Grover oil bath held the agreement even when using rods that are weak and bends practice
4 - By using a magnetic pickup (Dean Markley kind) we are left with a more pleasant and more manageable by a sound that guitars with piezo.
In short, it's a real vintage guitar collector AND (built around 1000 guitars, it does not stop many still alive)
Unfortunately difficult to find one in excellent condition, the owners jealously guard and then with some pets, the varnish tends to become opaque including the back.
Poour one who finds the guitar that really stands out is an excellent choice, the same level as the fender or gibson F80 at the time.
The handle is almost that of a gibson les paul from home, ensuring fast solos.
dreaghnout as any, access to acute is still difficult.
I personally find not great ergonomics, it is big for my puny little body ....
To play guitar by the fire, in conjunction with a microphone rosette (forget the piezo), host a fun evening singing the old standards of Simon and Garfunkel, to the tubes through Guns'n'Roses cat stevens or metallica, in fact almost all the styles, when mastering the guitar, of course!
Purchased in 1982
most: the sound
minimum: the weight and bulk
I tried at the time: F80 fender, gibson I can not remember the reference
Value for money: excellent for sound, just for the quality of the varnish
Yes definitely, because for that price it is quite impossible to approach such a violin
