1992 S540sol Case ave. was it a pro's axe ?

I have had this guitar since 1999 and I always thought it was a great guitar. I was just recently reading about the customs from USA from PA and Hollywood Ca. It said that the Case ave shop was for the pro players and was another shop up the street for retail.

So I went to check my axe and it is from the Case ave shop. Which got me to thinking, who's guitar might this have been before I bought it? Well I live in the Ca bay area and there are a few pros that fit the bill. Joe Satriani and Alex Skolnick. I'm not sure of any other possible pros that might have been endorsed, selected this model AND lives in the Ca bay area.

So what I would like to know is if anyone can give me any insight to the chance that I have a pro's old axe or not.

Here's my attempt to upload a pic or two. ok I need help to load a pic or two. I'll be back, lunch time!!

I had the same guitar, so I don't think it was an endorsee guitar.

Just a slight delay on the response...

I got rid of mine about a year ago. I bought it around 1993 as a backup to my 540R when I was playing clubs. I never really got attached to it, mostly because all I ever wanted to play was the 540R because it was so comfortable.

When I started to move to JEMS and RGs, I decided it was time to let her go.
