Help - Info on my "S" series custom ?

Can one of you sharpies tell me anything about this "S" series custom?

A friend had a computer emergency and I did some computer work for him in exchange for one of his many guitars ( he said it a mid 1990's model probably). I may give it to my son , although he really needs a nylon string classical. I'm a keyboard player/producer and and don't know too much about electrics so any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I posted the pics at my flikr account

thanks for any info.

That is an extremely nice S very clean, looks almost new. Pickup have been upgraded which is great. It's probably a '93 from my guess. That kind of guitar i would not pass up, if your son ever gets into electric guitar I'd look no further than getting an S like that, they are top tier guitars. I suggest you hang on to that one.

very nice, superb condition from the looks of it. i'm not an "s" man myself, so i can't tell you much about it, apart from that the pickups have been upgraded to seymour duncans, it has a lo pro edge and that it's a damn nice guitar!

apart from the pickups, it's a perfectly normal S540LTD which is awesome. early nineties would be a safe bet. killer guitar!

Many Thanks

Thanks guys.

I really appreciate all the info.

Sounds like a great guitar for him if he starts playing electric. Right now he's a Phil Keaggy fanatic and is starting to listen to his electric playing.

He better practice hard for the rest of the year if he wants it,
right now he only gets to look at it...
