FS in EU Ibanez Radius 440R-HHBK with Chrome Dimarzios

Pictures: http://s248.photobucket.com/albums/g...z%20440R-HHBK/

Ok, sad to let it go, but times are getting tougher so it is time to start moving a few things.
I decided to downsize and keep one 6-string Ibanez, one 7-string, my RD707 bass and my two PRS Custom24’s. I am currently down to two 6-string Ibanez guitars, so it was either this or the RG550 I’ve had since new in 1990. I am way to emotionally attached to the RG550 so the Radius is for sale although it gets more playtime than the RG550. I will probably sell my Ibanez UV7BK green dot and a Marshall JTM30 2x10 tube combo as well so watch this space…

Anyway, here we have a 1990 Ibanez Radius 440R in a not so frequent HH configuration. These did not have Wizard necks but a little more rounder/thicker Ultra necks. Check the spec sheets I include from the Ibanez catalogs in the pictures album.

It is generally in decent shape with a few minor scratches and dings that are not through the finish and not that easy to capture in the pictures.
There are no neck pocket cracks and no cracks behind the nut.
Frets are pretty good and the guitar plays great. This is the best sustaining Ibby I’ve had! Maybe the thicker neck??
Previous owner has scalloped the last 6 frets.

The only differences from the 540R were the pickups and hardware color.
I don’t think I have to remind you that the Radius series was the inspiration for the Joe Satriani series and since getting the guitar I have done the following JS mods.
In fact this is how I hoped a version of the JS would come out, with all chrome hardware and pickups and a contrasting black finish.
- Original black hardware changed to Chrome with original Ibanez parts as seen in the pictures. Please note the super rare chrome trem bar
- Pickups changed to Dimarzio Paf Joe and Moe Joe in Chrome! These were pretty hard to find and pricey! The pickup rings were changed to chrome as well (metal ones, not plastic!)
- Electronics were redone, a push pull tone pot was installed for coil splitting. The 3-way was replaced with a matching chrome one.
- Dimarzio ClipLok strap in black included.

Check my itrader here for reference and I can give you my ebay id with 100% feedback with 133 transactions if you need it.
Price is 500 euro plus shipping which is apprx. 60 euro for most of Europe. I have way more invested in this and would like to see it going to a loving home.

Hey mate, im sure i saw your guitar on ebay a few days ago. I think here was like 40 seconds to go before it ended before i realised what the guitar was lol. I was searching on the german ebay & i think yours was in those auctions. Did it sell on ebay if not are you going to be putting it back on there at somepoint
