Help identify my old Ibanez

I owned an Ibanez in the late 80's/early 90's that I'd love to have back. I can't remember the model, but don't see them on ****. The best way to describe the body is that the shape is similar to a PGM, but the lower horn sticks out a bit more than the top. It had a reverse headstock, Floyd Rose, can't remember if it just had two 'buckers or a single coil stuck in between them. When I sold it at a used guitar shop, the older gentleman bitched and mentioned that the neck was for shredders, too fast for regular guitar playing. It seems like Alex Skolnick MAY have played this model at one time. Any help so I can go looking for one????? Thanks in advance.

Re: Help identify my old Ibanez

Yep, I'm doing that to identify the year, but figured out what the guitar was from looking at the threads in this section. It was a 540P, desert yellow. Guess I was off a bit on the body being like a PGM. I am a little discouraged that they are hard to find. I know that I had some difficulty getting the used shop to buy it from me.....he acted like he'd never be able to sell it. I would love to have that guitar back.(I know, the most spoken words on any guitar forum).
