Had my eye on this one...

You don't see to many 540RHHs around, and to see a near-mint one in Jewel Blue gave me some acute GAS pains. I almost considered selling my Parker to get this one. But i resisted.

Check it out.

It's a little more than i would pay for a 14-year-old production-line guitar, but not too bad. Not a steal, but not outrageous. I paid about half that for my 442R.

If that's a typical market price for a 540 in good shape, then it seems a much better deal than buying a new JS...

I'll do a detailed HSH Radius vs. HSH JS1 report; once I receive my JS.

I think it's an ok price. And if the buyer really WANTED that axe, it's a pretty good price for him.

Radius guitars are sooo cool.

Very very similar to the JS100BTB. I bet it plays very similar too.
Very nice guitar that though. I have never seen any of those on ebay uk.
Well not oo many anyway!
