FS: '90 Ibanez 540R-LTD in beautiful Jewel Blue. Upgraded pickups PAF Joe and 'Mo Joe. Original C3 middle coil. Upgraded switch to Megaswitch. Have original F1 pickups unscratched and original YM-50 switch.
The guitar is in excellent condition, I'd call it mint but it has a group of scratches on the side of the body, about an inch long. I think it happened during shipping, it had to have hit the hard edge of the case on the inside. There is slight pick scratch hazing in the usual spot.
The headstock behind is signed by Reb Beach. This guitar was put into a closet for many years after the original owner had it signed by Reb at a concert in 91. I kinda wish it weren't.
Hardware IS near mint with just a small amount of oxidation on the volume knob. Lo-Pro Edge term is perfect as are the tuners, tone knob and nut. Slight pick scratch hazing. The neck is near perfect also with just a hint of fret wear. Headstock is clean besides one little mark on tip of headstock, at the end of the swoosh.
The pots are not scratchy and electronics work as they should. The Megaswitch coil taps the hum buckers.
This is a beautiful guitar both in looks and playability, The PAF and Mo joe pickup sound incredible in it. More vintage than shreddy because of the PAF honk. Lower action and setup perfect.
It even has the original tools, small '90 Ibanez catalog and original warranty paperwork showing the serial number.
Asking $685 with the upgraded pickups, $625 without them and originals put back in. Shipped. Paypal gift.
I have both my 90 and 91 540's listed. If one sells, I may keep the other.
