Re: 1987 Ibanez 540 PMG

Somewhere in the $350-500 range.

This one sold for $475 but was a very rare and sought after Carotene Orange color. The original Power has never gotten a lot of love from collectors and so the prices have never gotten that high. That's why you see them parted out so often. People pick them up for under $400 and try to turn a profit.

Now complete dead mint, maybe you could get $500 if you found the right buyer. More if you magically had beehive knobs on it, but those didn't really show up until 1988.

It is in perfect condition except for a few light pick marks due to the no pick guard style.

Rosewood fretboard the next is super comfortable to play on. I just do not have a need for a floating bridge me more.

Re: 1987 Ibanez 540 PMG

That's an '88, which has only one knob and usually comes with a beehive knob. 87's had a tone knob.

Re: 1987 Ibanez 540 PMG

I'm looking for the 2-knob version of that guitar.

Let me know if u decide to sell this one once you decide on a price and I'll see if I can swing it. I just bought a guitar last week on here..so.. the deal has to be right for me.. :-)

Probably about the same as what I posted above. If you have that metal beehive knob like in that picture, that can fetch some extra bucks. But I wanted to point out that what you have is an '88, not an '87.
