Well, the main question was whether this guitar (described in my first post) could possibly be a 540P? The older threads mentioned that the later ones had the 5-way switch, but I wasn't sure about the input jack on the face. (Rich answered that one). Also, has anyone ever seen a white 540S? I never had, but I guess this must be one. Maybe the more squared off edges were my imagination. I've sorta been wondering how different the alder bodied 540Ps sounded as compared to the mahogany 540S. Nuno, I saw in the old posts that you were into the 540Ps. Want to share your observations?
Topic shift: Rich, I think it would be great if we had a site where all of the old catalogs were posted. The "Blue Horizon" and "Ibanez Vintage" pages have some, but most years/models are missing. A lot of the questions posted in the forum (including mine!) could be answered from the old catalogs. But I believe you: this would be a HUGE task. Plus it would take a lot of server space. Is there anyway the group could underwrite this as a project? I'd certainly throw in some cash. It's not fair to ask you to undertake it for freebies (of course, you may have only been kidding).
