DEATH IS NOT AN OPTION: gun to the head-'90 540s or TeamJ RG1270 prestige

Imagine someone broke in and stole all your stuff, you discover them, as they come to your guitars and are taking them all when they notice your sad face. They hold a gun to your head and decide they'll let you keep ONLY ONE, and force you to chose btwn the two listed in the title: a '90 540sfm, or a recent Team-J RG1570 Prestige. Which one do you choose, and why?

No contest for me, the 540S. Better trem, better pups, original Wizard neck, way more mojo!!

Thanks for the input. That's what my gut's telling me too, based on past seller's remorse I've experinced, it's always been the vintage/classics I've unloaded that haunt me. The newer stuff seems easier to replace if I REALLY can't live without one.

No probs. Go with your gut instinct for sure. Sounds like you had some great guitars, and as you know there's nothing as painful as regret. Imho that 540s would be great way to start putting that right. Btw I forgot to mention the awesome Sabre body profile in my previous post.

Definitely the 540S. Newer stuff doesnt match up to old school. Yeah I like my prestiges, but my '90 560 and 93 550 are amazing.

I'd like to see their face when they see that my guns bigger and Im angrier. however if it wasn't close I'd go 540S all the way. I had to unload both my late 80s/early 90s ones and it still pisses me off! They're getting fewer and farer to find in good shape/unmodded. The F1 in the neck was always better in a bridge slot, but other then that, the originals are total mo-Jo inducing.
