Re: The "custom made" inlay...
It was only found on limited edition guitars at first(which the 540LTD's were),but they (540's)were so popular they became full production models. The custom made inlay was a part of what people liked and stayed until the mid 90's. It can be found on a few Ibanez's through the years,but mostly the 540 series. Remember the 540 series were cutting edge design's that broke a lot of guitar standards and were the joint child of Japan and the US together. Custom designed may of been more of an exceptable term to some of you,though the inlay has been used on J customs and other models in Japan. Ironically most of the custom orders of the 540 series(real custom orders) don't feature the inlay,this leads me to believe that only Japanese made necks scored the inlay if at all.
