I was checking out some JS series guitars at Knoxville GC when I came across a used 1991 S540
? Can't remember how those years/model numbers work) in whatever that purplish blue color is.
I was so stoked to find something just like I was looking for, and never thought I would find it in person. It has everything I thought I'd like in a great RG570, but with my preferred mahogany body and my preferred 22 frets. The sounds in all five positions are terrific...just awesome. Let's call it the honeymoon but I truly feel like I found the shred guitar I've been looking for to get out of the way of the music I want to play. Forgive the flowery language. Awesome to get an old MIJ/MIA Ibby for a fraction of what a new MIJ would cost.
I'll post pics as soon as I'm able. Interested in feedback from any older Saber owners.
