1990 Ibanez 540R, Jewel Blue, MIJ, HSH, matching headstock!

Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: This is a 1990 Ibanez 540R (Radius, the predecessor to the eventual Joe Satriani guitar) in the Jewel Blue finish, MIJ with matching headstock which apparently means that this is a Japan-only release therefore rare in the US (HOWEVER I CANNOT VERIFY THAT THIS IS ACCURATE, THIS IS FROM OTHER PEOPLE), and HSH pup configuration. It is equipped with the factory IBZ pups for the year, licensed Floyd Rose tremolo with trem arm, Cosmo Black hardware. One piece Maple neck, a dark Rosewood fretboard with "Custom Made" on the 22nd fret, Basswood body.

Overall this guitar is in fantastic condition but it's not perfect. There are some body dings and surface imperfections but nothing that affects the playability of the guitar. The Cosmo Black coating is showing signs of pitting but again, this seems superficial. If it had to rate it then 8 out of 10 would seem sufficient. I purchased this from a guy in Japan and it was still in tune when I got in the US so its solid. This guitar feels great, I can definitely compare this to today's Prestige line.

Modifications (if any): The previous owner installed some knurled volume/tone knobs but the original ones are included.
Accessories (hardshell case etc): A nice softshell case is included, trem arm, original volume and tone knobs.
Location (City,State or City,Country): Schaumburg, IL. Suburb of Chicago.
International OK? : Not at this time.
