Question Difference between 440R and 540R

what's the major difference ih this 2 guitars? i noticed that the 440r has V2 on the bridge, and the 540r has the f1... is this it? they are the same on body shape and neck, bridge, etc?

P.S: 1st topic, hope you can understand what I wrote, I'm brazilian

Afair the 540 was shipped with the IBZUSA PUs (DiMarzio-Made), while the 440 had selfmade PUs.

just this? so it's basically the same guitar, but with different pups?

I found one for a good price here in brazil, hope I can get it :P
edge tremolo and V2/S1 pups (similar to the new Rg's??)... so nice

Additionaly, the (early) 540 had the backstop (ibanez trem setter), and the 440 didn't.
Anyway, I got a late '80s 440, and it's one of my favourites.

Also, '91 540s had the Lo Pro edge, while the 440s in that year still had the original edge.. which isn't a drawback in my opinion.

Don't forget to post pics once you got it
