Post 1991 Ibanez RG750 or S540

I'd like to know what is a better deal:
both are 1991 and $500:

Ibanez rg750
Ibanez s540

the dealer has said the s540 has the wizard neck is that true?
and what is the bridge for both the guitars?

Re: 1991 Ibanez RG750 or S540

Is it an S540 or an S540LTD model? Anyway either of those S540 will have the Wizard neck and the Lo Pro Edge trem I think.

RG750, Wizard neck and Edge trem.

Both are good guitars. I'd lean towards the RG750 which was Paul Gilberts main guitar for a while. Best to try both out and see how they feel/sound to you, that's the most important thing.

I prefer RG's, but S's are no slobs. I don't think you will lose out with either choice. It'll just come down to personal preference I think.

Re: 1991 Ibanez RG750 or S540

same quality, maybe a plus for the RG

S is mahogany
RG is basswood

compare the shape of the body and the neck/the most comfortable for you

your feeling can decide, in this case

Re: 1991 Ibanez RG750 or S540

Like Ibanez Daemon said, back in 91, The RG according to the catalogue would have come with the original Edge rather than the Lo Pro Edge but the S540 would have had the Lo Pro. BUT Ibanez hardware doesn't always go "by the book" when compared to the serial number.

as far as the typo mentioned on ultimate guitar... There's an RG570 that is a far more common guitar, I'm sure folks will have just made an assumption.

700 series are hardly rare, just good guitars. For $500 it should be in very good shape, or try for a better price.

Re: 1991 Ibanez RG750 or S540

okay.

this is completely out of the topic, but on **** i could clearly see the prices of 500's and 700's are going up, before it used to be like between 300-500 and now its more like 700-1000. probrably cuz they're getting more rare i guess i dunno.
