A proper FGM should have color-matched inlays in my opinion! ;-)

nope, there are many kind of FGM.
FGM 300 does not have the color matching sharktooth inlays.

from the pictures provided by the seller, it shows : recessed pickups and FGM-style squared-hole spring plate cover.

This is a S540LPF Origin 1 FGM body with a 540P neck. I considered buying it myself a couple of weeks back,for the neck mostly.

The S540LPF was the first FGM sig model,but only available in Japan.
The world got the FGM100 a couple of years later.

Re: FGM custom ?

Yeah,outside of Japan. I think within Japan there would be quite a few as Japan never got the 540ltd they instead got the FGM version(LPF),but when ever i see one outside of Japan for sale they are always listed as the 540LTD due to most not knowing it's true identity. This is a great mutt though,i would definately buy it if i was'nt BROKE!!
I need a yellow for my rainbow and a 45mm 540p neck is like the holy grail to me as i have NEVER yet ever owned or played a 540p!!! See Metalgods collection to see awesome 540p's and suffer as i do!! One day i'll find one.
You can see my purple S540LPF and it's matched headstock below in mt Saber rainbow.
