Love the radius and js bodies though. So damn unique.
This is the original model 1987, they all had three miniswitches, the 540 R, S and P. The later Rs had more like the JS pickup selector.

Oh okay, i guess the guy i bought my radius body from had the year wrong. I have no mini toggles and one 5 way selector. So what year might that be?

I don't know off hand but you can go to ibanez.com, look at the catalog archive, I think it's a link along the bottom and then just look from 1988 on at catalogs and find the radius and see what they looked like.

Re: Why is it impossible to buy an Ibanez Backstop?

I used to play around with the Backbox quite a lot, but's it's just a very poor design. There is absolutely no real advantage to using these things. Metal against metal movement in the backbox is just one of the design faults. The forces will never be aligned exactly with the shaft centre axis of the backbox --> friction issues --> theoretical advantage out the window.
