oh you're right, in that video the horn is still intact. but i'm sure i've seen in a video, maybe a Young Guitar video, and also in a guitar magazine where the horn is cut off. too bad...

whatever you do, please post pics when it done!!!

Yes, I've been thinking about that too. I think something like a Lizard- or snakeskin design would suit this guitar very well. I'm not too keen on swirls and I think the body is too small for a decent swirl.
Too bad I don't know any shop in Holland that would be able to do a skinjob!

Also good idea to keep it in the likes of that era. Neon pink would actually also be very cool. Too many choices!!!
What do you think about a skin Nuno?

Re: Ibanez 540P/540PII owners?

that would be freakin cool actually, even cause the lower horn would look like the snake's tail, sooo long and pointy! but you mean skin graphics or real skin, or kind of printed fabric?

Well, if I'm correct some of the skins are graphics and some are real fabric under a layer of clearcoat (like some of the Jems, FP and BFP).
I'm thinking of one of these. They're awesome for the 540PII me thinks:
JUST IMAGINE THE BODY OF A 540PII WITH ONE THESE SKINS!!!!

Re: Ibanez 540P/540PII owners?

I remember here in Australia.......well Sydney anyway, when the 540PII was released they couldn't give the things away & they were going for ridiculous closeout prices, I look back & think damn I should have grabbed one. The neon orange & desert yellow looked awesome, but the black is way cool. I personally think it would look bitchin if you were to fill in the holes for the pick guard or use a clear pickguard & get it done in a black & white swirl. Aggressive, understated, yet very elegant all at the same time. Thats my $0.02's worth anyways.

Catch ya's later...........Joe

Re: Ibanez 540P/540PII owners?

the snake skin is super cool!
i usually rather non-pickguard guitars too, their more "clean" looking but the P-II pickguard is so cool that i could never get rid of it. that guitar is one of the most underrated ever. what it makes me wonder is that the P-II also sounds awesome, you would never expect that blasting sound from this little cutie!

Hey, last time I went through Newtown, the Hock/Music shop on King Street had a slightly battered pink Radius I think H-S-S, if any Sydneysiders are interested......

Was it called Pete's Musicians Market? He deals in 2nd hand music gear & is on King St. Newtown. If it was just a regular hock shop well you'd be doing the run of Newtown because there's quite a few hock shops around there

Catch ya later........Joe

Would like to add 540PII to collection. But as the are quite hard to get hold off (patience is not my virtue!!!), I might build one and do something special with it (Bigsby, Tele trem, etc), although Maxxas 7 string copy will be first on the list.

Recently bumped into 540PII that owner had attacked with paintstripper and bandsander. It put tears to my ears.
I LOVE that guitar. What a cool colour. You're lucky man.

Re: Ibanez 540P/540PII owners?

I just recently picked up a 540P in Carotene Orange. Exc shape.
Made Jan 1987. Ser is A8700361
Did Ibanez have the S numbers lined up with the production built like PRS does?
Does anyone know how many of these were made and what they are worth???
Thanks

Re: Ibanez 540P/540PII owners?

Interesting 540P^. I always thought that the lower horn on those were too big for my tastes, nice guitars nonetheless though. I really like the shape of those Power series guitars like the one pictured on Satch's Not Of This Earth and Dreaming #11 albums.
