Re: 1980s Ibanez Identification
I owned the exact same model. It's a 540S Saber, MIJ. I made a few mods: Upgraded the pups to PAF PROs out of a Jem 77FP. Rewired the switches to be on/off only. So in effect, each was a kill switch, so I could turn the guitar off or have any pup config.
It had the thinnest neck of any guitar I've ever played. I think the body was mahogany, because it weighed more than it should have, given its size and thin profile.
It was the most 'alive' guitar out of all my mates' guitars, not just looks, but after the PUP change, it was so responsive. You couldn't touch it without the amp screaming at you - fun! The colour was described as lime green, but I don't actually know. In person, I'd describe it as fluorescent yellow, it's THAT vibrant. Under stage lights it would blind people. lol
Great guitar. It's funny, my mates used to laugh at it, but now all these things are coming back into fashion. Should have kept it maybe...
