NGD!!!!!!!!And I mean NEWWWW. 540R-LTD

So i have decided I am kind of a 540 guy and would like my collection to be of these kind of things. Had some money put back for the right one and wouldn't you know it, GC came up with one. I snagged it the first day, had them hold it on a layaway until I could get my money loose and Whammo, it's here today.

1991 Ibanez 540R-LTD Black. HSH

When I say new guitar, I mean just that. For anyone that saw how clean the Jewel Blue one i have is, this is cleaner. No corrosion on parts,knobs, trem arm, nut, tuners, no scratches, just a hair of fretwear, No neck dinks, no jack dinks, not even any picking scratches. The F1,C3,F1 on the pickups is all there. Trem is perfect!! This thing must have say in a case under as bed somewhere. I even got the original case in good condition with all the paperwork and tools in it. The only cleaning I have done is get some of the wax off.

Oldskool 540's are the biz,especially in that condition.

Re: NGD!!!!!!!!And I mean NEWWWW. 540R540R,radius

Thanks guys. It IS sexy. Sexier than the Jewel Blue which is a beautiful color.

Less than $450.

Psycho, it just SEEMS like I find these beauties all the time but really, I am finicky about the guitars I do buy so my chances of finding a clean one are greater.

I REALLY hate to say this but...I may put her in her case for awhile. Play my Blue one until she needs new frets or something and then bring the black one out. I'll have 540R bliss for many years to come.

That's really close to the one that I bought and turned into the orange and blue striped hybrid. Oh, except mine was COMPLETELY ragged out and I think I spent $280 or so for mine.

Nice score dude. Congratulations!!!
