S540 and it wasn't custom made. That inlay was a gimmick they used. It is just a normal production model. Good guitars.

I did a brief look through the catalogs and while I found that config I didn't find a pic of your color. It is somewhere in the early 90's catalogs.

Re: NAME THAT IBANEZ....

I think they are asking too much for it. 4-5 tops

Re: NAME THAT IBANEZ....

Yeah I came to the same conclusion. Asking too much, otherwise known as more than I'm willing to spend.

Maybe he said Sam Ash so no one else would pounce on it.

Re: NAME THAT IBANEZ....

I'd give them no more than 400 for it.

Yeah I thought about that but the guitar has been online for weeks at that price. I tried to see if they'd come down and they would not. It's always a crap shoot with GC stuff, thank god for the 30-day MBG. I went through three guitars with them before finding an S that was a keeper.

Still, a jewel blue with flamey top, I don't think I've ever seen another like that. Only in green and brown. Personally, the way most play, they're $600 guitars. Very much superior to the newer Indonesian models (and I own one of those).

Re: NAME THAT IBANEZ....

I think it's a S540LTD. I've seen these on CL averaging around $375. $400 would definitely be the max offer IMO.

Re: NAME THAT IBANEZ....

I do believe GC owns all online guitar stores, and they share the same stock, used and new.

so wherever you buy from, it all comes from GC.
