Narrow Box Series 1979-1980

(with square switch)

Ibanez narrow box series with square switch and flying fingers side graphic

The "narrow box series with square switch" was a fugacious series between the "narrow box series with round switch" and the subsequent "standard box series" with easy battery access. New effects were introduced, namely Analog Delay, Chorus, Flanger, Graphic EQ and the famed Tube Screamer. Only Flanger, Tube Screamer, Graphic EQ and Chorus were available with different graphics, first with, later without lateral flying fingers decor. Compressor II and Phase Tone are incredibly rare since they hade been produced before with round switch and stores were still well stocked with the earlier model. Stereo Box and both earlier Overdrives were discontinued in this series.
