540PII values

I'm thinking of trading in my 1988 540PII for a Gibson Les Paul. Any ideas on how much a 540PII goes for on today's market in USD or CAD, it's got a Seymour Duncan "Duncan Custom" in the bridge and the original C2 in the neck and a tiny paint chip on top.

Thanks, Jetfixer

I dont think they are that valuable most Ive seen on ebay have been in the 500 range, but Im sure some of the other guys can give you a little more help with that. You could always trade in and add some cash to the mix, but you wont get value when you do that, they have to swing a profit you know

I love those things!

you say C2 in the neck so it's obviously the S-H version, which I'm not after. what colour is it, just out of interest...?

I think its color code FA "five alarm red" because it looks like a blend of orange, red!

I saw one in a guitar shop a couple of years ago, and one of the guys there knew alot about Ibanezs, so he knew what model it was, and how Alex Skolnik had played one, etc. Anyway, it was in fair shape, a little dinged, and it was going for $300 or $350.
I would have bought it, but

A) it only had 22 frets (i don't have enough $$$ to justify a non-main guitar)


b) it was bright freakin' pink!

I would be interested in buying your 540p. Please let me know if you're going to sell it.

FYI- A 540p just sold on e**y for $330 and it has dual humbuckers which is a little more sought after. And it was black.
