1990 Ibanez 540S

A very nice red '90 540S. Completely stock with the original hardshell case.
HSS pickups- original black IBZ-USA.
Edge trem, cosmo hardware.
5 way switch
oval MOP inlays with the "custom made" at 22nd.
Square heel neck joint with no finish crack.
No crack at on backside of the nut around the screws.
No dings or gouges, and no scratches that go thru the clearcoat. Just a few little worm swirls here and there but you've gotta look hard and turn it into the light to see them.
Neck is one of the straightest I've seen, and the action is super low.

There are only a few things on the guitar that keep me from calling it "dead mint"
1. There is some pitting (no rust) on the trem..a little more on the low side, and no rust on the saddles or saddle screws.
2. The only real visible fret wear is on the 2nd fret G, which is no surprise on a guitar that's 20 months old, much less 20 years. But it's not enough to cause any buzzing or affect playability.

That's about it. Pics here:










I'll sell it for $650 shipped to the 48 states in the original case. International I'll have to get quoted based on your location.

OR - I'll sell for $625 shipped in one of those Gator zip-up softshell cases. The Gator has been toured with, but it's functionally sound and will protect the guitar.

Would consider a trade on a stock original black RG550 (maple board) in equally as good condition. Other than that - Paypal.
