Re: NGD 540Power WH

Congrats. The 560 is the only SSH guitar for me but good that you're happy. Boy, now that I think about it, Ibanez was SSH happy in the 80's, weren't they?

Re: NGD 540Power WH

I'm curious to hear how it compares to your 540-R. Keep us posted when it arrives!

Re: NGD 540Power WH

Well what is cool is that the POWER is an "ALDER" body. I found a pic showing the construction of the 3 in the Pro540 guitar series. And what is interesting other than the different shape is that the 3 are also of different material.

Im friends with Rich Lasner on Facebook He was the designer of all 3 in the Pro540 series and i asked him about his input into the model. He was also the designer of the more radical PII...

I am quite pleased that i will now have one of each of these guitars standard and un modifed for my collection. A PII would now be a nice addition also....

That's cool, I have one in black. The white one is very nice.

I had an 88 S540 HH but the neck was way too flat and thin for my tastes. Although I like that it was two humbuckers and a three way toggle switch. Most Ss didn't have that set up

It's also funny how Satch gets connected to the Power series just because of that first ad. He never used any of them. He only held one for the ad and used a 540 Radius on Dreaming #11.

i don't really get why it didn't clicked much back in the days. i'm one of the biggest, if not the bigger fan ever of the 540P either first and second version. i own 4 now, and am so proud of them.

Well, I took the Ibanez history book at its word so I guess they were wrong.
