**-** the 540 thread **-**

As I am Agent540 I had to open this thread

You can tell me if it is a bad idea, but ... why not ?

Nothing but 540S, 540R, 540P, S540, and whatever is Ibanez 540something....or something540 !

Re: **-** the 540 thread **-**

Very nice collection!!
When you see the Beehive knobs, you know thats old school love, not once but twice.
Very cool. But I have to say why no love for the ebony S? Its sporting the original edge trem and she's stringless..... Cant figure that out, but the question from me is whats going on with the headstock? No logo there. Somebody must of made a big mistake sometime with that axe.
Nonetheless you have some very nice guitars here. I love the green one also, but the third from the right needs to loose the purple pup. It doesnt look good with that dark finish in my opinion........

Hardware store, just plain old grommets/seals for taps/faucets.
A little bit thicker,but pretty darn perfect.
I found a multi pack here that had all the perfect sizes,let me know if you cannot find anything your side of the world,I'm happy to get hold of some for you here in Australia if needed.

I was just logging in to ask you what the ID/OD sizes of the O-Rings you bought for your knobs and I see this reply. Ive been thinking of replacing mine on my '88 Saber. After 23 years only one or two lower ones have a little dry rotting and minimal cracks. For some reason I cant bring myself to pull them off of the knobs. Probably because they are original and in good shape, but Im sure new ones feel a lot stickier and grip better. Guess I need to get my head out of my ass and do it.
BTW nice axes!
