Re: NGD 1990 540R LTD JB!!!!

How about a NGD twice???? I had to sell this guitar to pay for some scuba stuff for a lost ring quest.

The guy I sold this to was a local guy and I told him if if he ever wanted to get rid of it, let me know and well, he did. He had installed a PAF Joe and Mo' Joe in it and wired a super 5-way switch for coil taps.

Not only is it in the same near perfect condition as when I got it, it has been upgraded to boot. This guitar is fantastic sounding with the new pickups and still plays like a dream.

I am a happy camper. And I thought i was getting away from Ibanez.

Not going to happen, this thing just fits and considering my first guitar was a 540, it feels like home.

It's like every Ibanez fan wet dreams, finding such a classic guitar in 'that' conditions?

I don't even dare to dream about it.

That guitar looks righteous. I recently got one made in 1987 in pink. Not as good of condition as that one, but I understand the love for these models.

Thanks guys, she is in incredible condition. Like getting a new guitar built in 1990. I'm glad I got her back.

The pickups changed it completely and it is soooo satriani. The addition of the switch and coil tap makes a huge difference also.

Re: NGD 1990 540R LTD JB!!!!

so is it safe to assume you are not done with ibanez?

i agree that the radius has become my home when it comes to guitars.... it is the measuring stick by which i compare all other guitars....

Re: NGD 1990 540R LTD JB!!!!

LOL Scott, no, probably not done with Ibanez, just done with the RG experiment. I've never instantly bonded with an RG like I have this 540. I have been playing it whenever I get a chance.

It even got me thinking about a JS2400, in case I miss the extra frets!

I think what has really done it with the 540 this time around though is the sound. The Paf Joe and Mo' Joe are incredible pickups. Definitely voiced for Satch stuff. I gotta finish recording Always so I can work on Ten Words for the wife and then it's time for Flying and Summer Song.

Hell, I'm even using the trem bar again. Something I never really learned to do well.

LG, Satriani inspired mine 18 years ago when I got my first 540. Awesome to hear you still got her. I wouldn't finding my original HSS Black 540.

I may still buy another here soon. Whats the Mod?

That's awesome that you got your guitar back and is even better this time around. Funny how things come full circle like that and also the mods that have been done to it improve your opinion on it even more so, what a lucky surprise for you I bet...I do agree on the HSS 540, or the JS2400(want one). I do fancy myself the power of humbucker in the neck position but, the single coil tone and aesthetics has always appealed to me as well, hence my '90 560LR...I'm going to post a thread about the guitar itself, of it's rareness and of the mod...So until then, I don't want to spoil it...
